What is a B Corp?

B Corps (Better Corporations) are companies run as a force for good.

Becoming a Certified B Corp means that all aspects of the company have been scrutinised and that the company has been accredited with an ethical business stamp of approval. In short, B Corp is to business, what Fair Trade certification is to coffee.

Business must create value for society, not just shareholders.

 

Why do B Corps Matter?

The global B Corp movement is growing and becoming an increasingly powerful agent of change.

Unlike traditional companies, Certified B Corporations are legally required to consider the impact of their decisions not only on their shareholders, but also on their stakeholders (e.g. workers, suppliers, community, clients, and the environment).

By voluntarily meeting higher standards of transparency, accountability, and performance, Certified B Corps are distinguishing themselves in a cluttered marketplace by offering a positive vision of a better way to do business.

Radfield as a B Corp

When we first heard about the B Corp movement it immediately resonated with us as it seemed to be a perfect fit for what we have always strived to do in our business and that is to put all of our people first. Our staff feel and talk about being part of the 'Radfield family' and our people led culture has heavily influenced the way that we operate and structure our business.

Radfield Home Care are a company built on positive relationships. We are all about our people, all of the time - be it clients, their families, health care professionals, our staff, their families and so on.... This is why Radfield has developed beyond being simply a care business - Radfield is a community of care.

We became a B Corp because we wanted to demonstrate our commitment to lead our people and to our planet in a transparent and clear way. We are extremely proud to be the very first healthcare company in the UK to become a Certified B Corp and to represent the care sector within the B Corp community.

 

#B The Change

Joining the global community of B Corps enables us to work alongside similar minded businesses who share our values. Each Certified B Corp makes a legal pledge to expand the traditional bottom line of business from being all about profit to also include People and the Planet. This is the 'Triple Bottom Line' which separates Certified B Corps from their competitors.

By legally embedding these principles it ensures that the Radfield culture that is so dear to us will remain a part of the very fabric of the company for future years to come.

The Future

B Corps are growing rapidly and as the momentum increases it will become a familiar term and one that is associated with a collective of companies that you would preferentially choose to do business with.

The UK care sector has been subject to repeated negativity around the quality of care, conditions for care workers and so on. It is a challenging sector as there is simply not enough public money to ensure all those in need, receive the care they require and that care workers are paid well and looked after.

At Radfield Home Care we cannot, unfortunately, solve all of the problems that the sector faces - however we can do our bit. We can ensure that the care we provide is second to none, that our clients are always treated with respect, dignity and compassion, and that our care workers are well remunerated and well looked after.

We can also drive positive change by being a respected voice in the UK care sector and to push for improvements that safeguard and enhance quality of life for vulnerable people.
