Benevity Clients Make Up More than One Third of “JUST 100” List of America’s Most JUST Companies
List Ranks Companies on Issues Ranging from Employee Benefits to Community Support, Environmental Impact and More
CALGARY, Alberta, Jan. 16, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Benevity, Inc., the global leader in corporate social responsibility (CSR) and employee engagement software, today announced that more than one third of the companies on JUST Capital’s list of America’s 100 “most JUST” corporations are Benevity clients. Developed in partnership with Forbes, the 2018 JUST 100 is the independent research nonprofit’s third annual ranking of publicly traded U.S. corporations based on a range of issues that Americans care about the most – including fair pay, benefits, support for local communities, customer privacy, environmental impact and more.
“At JUST Capital, our goal is to build a more just marketplace that better reflects the true priorities of the American people,” said Michelle Mullineaux, Managing Director of Marketing at JUST Capital. “Benevity shares our mission of empowering companies to be a positive force for change, so it’s no surprise that many of their clients are on the JUST 100. These companies are leading by example, demonstrating that doing well can and should be synonymous with doing good.”
JUST Capital conducts some of the most comprehensive surveys ever on public attitudes toward corporate behavior, reaching 9,000 American respondents in 2018 and more than 81,000 over the past four years. When asked what was most important for companies to prioritize, Americans ranked the following issues in order of importance: Workers, Customers, Products, the Environment, Jobs, Communities, and finally, Leadership & Shareholders. JUST Capital then tracked and evaluated the performance of companies against these priorities and created the ranking model that drives America’s Most JUST Companies, including the JUST 100 list of the top companies across all industries.
This year, 37 of Benevity’s clients made the JUST 100 list, with 21 (more than half) in the top 50 overall. These progressive companies, which include Microsoft, Biogen and Prudential Financial, are part of Benevity’s global community of more than 550 enterprise companies who share a deep commitment to infusing the world with more Goodness through modern approaches to their corporate social responsibility and employee engagement programs.
“Companies on JUST Capital’s list are leading their respective industries while also doing right by their employees, customers and the broader context of society,” said Bryan de Lottinville, Founder and CEO of Benevity. “We couldn’t be more proud of our clients that comprise a significant part of the JUST 100 and look forward to working with JUST Capital to evolve the way companies define impact and become catalysts for greater positive change.”
