Helsinki Capital Partners Honored as Best for Workers, Creating Most Positive Impact for Employees Evaluated by Comprehensive B Impact Assessment

Last week, Helsinki Capital Partners (HCP) was recognized for creating the most positive impact for their workers based on an independent, comprehensive assessment administered by the nonprofit B Lab. Honorees are featured on B the Change publication at bthechange.com/bestfortheworld.

HCP works as a stepping stone into career life for many young professionals through paid internship programs. Heini Kangas-Heiska taking care of HCP's rooftop garden during her internship in 2017.

HCP is honored in the Best for Workers list, which includes businesses that earned a Workers score in the top 10 percent of more than 2,400 Certified B Corporations on the B Impact Assessment. The Workers section of the B Impact Assessment assesses the company’s relationship with its workforce. It measures how the company treats its workers through compensation, benefits, training and ownership opportunities provided to workers.

The category also focuses on the overall work environment within the company by assessing management/worker communication, job flexibility, corporate culture, and worker health and safety practices.

Helsinki Capital Partners made the list thanks to exceptional practices like ownership opportunities, having all permanent workforce as owners, very flat compensation structure in salaries, no restrictions on location where work is conducted and great freedom to participate in #HCPSPIRIT projects.

Juhani Halminen joined the HCP team in the final year of his studies by participating in HCP’s trainee programme. Now he's one of the owners of the company and working as a Head of Fund Administration.

“With the rise of anger at a system that feels rigged, people are hungry for companies like Helsinki Capital Partners, who are changing the system by building businesses that seek to create the greatest positive impact,” says Jay Coen Gilbert, co-founder of B Lab.

Best for The World is the only list of businesses that uses comprehensive, comparable, third-party-validated data about a company’s social and environmental performance. As consumers, talent and investors increasingly demand transparent, values-aligned businesses to buy from, work at, and invest in, companies will need to not just be the best in the world but the best for the world.

Today there are more than 2,400 Certified B Corporations across more than 150 industries and 50 countries, unified by one common goal: to redefine success in business.

B Lab is a nonprofit organization that serves a global movement of people using business as a force for good.  Its vision is that one day all companies compete not only to be the best in the world, but the best for the world and society will enjoy prosperity for all for the long term.
