CSR Press Release

Y Scouts Achieves B Corporation Certification

Submitted by: Y Scouts

Categories: Corporate Social Responsibility, Ratings & Awards

Posted: Feb 04, 2014 – 10:00 AM EST


TEMPE, Ariz., Feb. 04 /CSRwire/ - Y Scouts is proud to announce its certification as a B Corporation, making it the first purpose-based leadership search firm to achieve B Corp status and only the seventh organization in Arizona to do so. Leading a global movement to redefine success in business, Certified B Corporations are a new kind of company with a positive vision of a better way to do business. As a Certified B Corporation, Y Scouts voluntarily meets a higher standard of transparency, accountability, and performance, harnessing the power of business to solve social and environmental problems. As a new kind of executive search firm, Y Scouts has been a pioneer in the staffing industry providing a service that connects purpose-driven organizations with purpose-driven leaders.

“Y Scouts works exclusively with purpose-driven organizations that attend to a triple bottom line of people, planet and profit,” said Brian Mohr, Co-Founder and Managing Partner of Y Scouts. “We became a certified B Corp to symbolize our commitment to serving these organizations.”

In order to be recognized as a Certified B Corporation, Y Scouts had to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance. To achieve the B Corporation certification, Y Scouts completed an assessment process established by B Lab, the B Corporation certification body. The assessment included frank disclosure of information relating to Y Scouts management and operations including its governance, workplace culture and employee benefits, environmental practices and community engagement. Y Scouts full B Impact Report is available to the public here.

About Y Scouts (
Y Scouts is a leadership and executive search firm that connects purpose-driven companies with purpose-driven leaders. Y Scouts believes that people are the only real competitive advantage in business and that best employer/employee connections start by connecting through a shared purpose. It's in the spirit of this philosophy that Y Scouts takes a purpose-based approach in finding leaders to join your cause. The result is delivering a whole human being who is fully connected with your purpose, and can show up to work naturally, fully expressing their arsenal of talents for a role in which they were meant to play.

About B Corp
Certified B Corporations meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, legally expand their corporate responsibilities to include consideration of stakeholder interests, and build collective voice through the power of the unifying B Corporation brand. As of January 2014, there are more than 800 Certified B Corporations from over 60 industries and 28 countries, representing a diverse multi-billion dollar marketplace.

About B Lab
B Lab is a nonprofit organization that serves a global movement to redefine success in business so that all companies compete not only to be the best in the world, but the best for the world. B Lab drives this systemic change through a number of interrelated initiative: 1) building a community of Certified B Corporations to make it easier for all of us to tell the difference between “good companies” and good marketing; 2) passing legislation to accelerate growth of social entrepreneurship and impact investing (20 states have already passed benefit corporation legislation); 3) driving capital to high impact investments through the use of GIIRS Ratings and Analytics (more than 60 investors with over $3B in impact assets under management use GIIRS); and 4) providing free, powerful tools for businesses to measure, compare and improve their social and environmental performance (more than 7,000 businesses use B Lab’s free B Impact Assessment).
