As of January 2, 2014, Neil Kelly Company is a certified benefit company (B Corporation). Benefit companies are a new breed of company that seeks to deliver value aside from standard shareholder profit. This audited certification serves to cement Neil Kelly’s commitment to its employees, to its community and to the environment by amending the company’s charter. It means that the company’s mission and values will remain intact throughout successive generations of management and leadership.
Each year, Neil Kelly will publicly report on its overall social and environmental performance using comprehensive, credible, independent, and transparent third-party standards. This offers the company more freedom to define success and provides legal protection for those looking to pursue a corporate purpose other than exclusively maximizing profits for shareholders.
