Grow Your Business, Grow Your Impact, and Get Recognized
Tap Into a Network of Resources Supporting Growth & Quality Employment
We believe companies have the power to influence the world for the better. That’s why we’re proud to be a B Corp, and believe that through everything we do, our impact is visible.
We’re teaming up with Best for NYC (a collaboration between the nonprofit B Lab and the City of New York) to recognize and celebrate companies in the Ellevate Network community that have taken steps to improve their business while increasing job quality for workers.
If you’re a small business based in New York City and provide access to professional development resources through membership to Ellevate Network to at least 3 of your employees, you have already proven your commitment to their professional growth, and have qualified for recognition and a suite of benefits that will help you continue on this path to increase your bottom line and quality of life for your employees.
By investing in your female employees through Ellevate Network, your company has shown your commitment to diversity. We know you recognize that treating your employees well and providing them with opportunities to advance and thrive is good for business.
Here's what you need to know:
