WJS strives to be a leader in practices that are not driven by the financial bottom line. B Corp is a third-party certification that brings WJS into an international movement that allows business to exhibit transparency and accountability.
Unlike traditional corporations, 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., employees, funders, community, clients, and the environment).
