Passion with a purpose.
In our other categories we assess small businesses under conventional headings such as financial plans, employee training, or their strides to innovate. Our Best Community Impact Award, sponsored by IEC of BC, salutes something a little different, but just as important – small businesses making a difference in their community. This business has taken positive action to invest in their community and sees social responsibility as an integral part of their success.
This award is assessed on the following three criteria:
- Community Impact Strategies: Business operations demonstrate a positive impact in the community in which the business operates.
- Diversity: The business models diversity and inclusion in the workplace and in business decision-making.
- Leadership: The business is considered to be a leader in new ways of doing business while doing good.
Last year, Ginger Jars scooped the award for their innovative approaches to recycling and waste reduction. Who will take the prize in 2021? Here are your Top 5 Finalists for the Best Community Impact Award:
