Top Drawer Is “Best for the World: Best for Workers,” Again!

April 14, 2015 by  Top Drawer Creative

What does it mean to be “Best for the World”?

For the second year in a row, Top Drawer has earned a ‘worker’ score in the top 10% of more than 1,200 Certified B Corporations from over 120 industries on the B Impact Assessment: a rigorous and comprehensive assessment of a company’s impact on its workers, community, and the environment. Honourees were recognized among micro, small, and mid-sized businesses around the globe.

We reached out to B Labs Canada to gather some specifics on what qualified us for the recognition.

Here are the factors that earned us a spot on the Best for the World: Best for Workers list, above other B Corporations around the world: 

  • Environmental Practices = 165% Greater than the Median B Corp
  • Community Practices = 60% Greater than the Median B Corp
  • Worker Compensation, Benefits, & Training = 73% Greater than the Median B Corp

Other factors:

  • 100% of Top Drawer’s employees are paid a living wage
  • Our company-wide annual bonus plan
  • Full health benefits extended to domestic partners
  • Commitment to internal hiring/promotion (more than 15% of all hires are from within)
  • Enhanced maternity leave
  • Employee wage ratio — the salary span between the highest paid to the lowest paid worker at Top Drawer is under 10:1
  • Flex-time / Telecommuting scheduling options
  • Employee carpooling
  • Bike-to-work incentives
  • Annual employee satisfaction survey

“We take pride in producing amazing creative and great campaigns for our clients, but that pride would be misplaced if we weren’t first and foremost focusing on the people who make it possible: our team,” says Brian Gahan, TDC’s CCO and EVP. “That’s one of the reasons we became a B Corp in the first place.”

“This is a standard we’re dedicated to upholding,” says TDC’s CEO, Howard Chang. “Inspired by B Labs and our fellow honourees, we’ll continue to strive towards taking the lead in providing comprehensive benefits and wellness programs, paying living wages, and creating opportunities for the professional and financial growth of our employees.”
