B GOOD

The i.d.e.a. Benefit Report

To earn and maintain our status as both a California benefit corporation and Certified B Corp, we annually set goals for the positive impact we want to have in the world, from investing in the community and protecting the environment to enhancing our team’s health and wellness. We then measure and report our progress, and set new goals for the year ahead.

Growing a Culture of Kindness

Giving our time and talents to the community is important to us. That’s why we give our team members paid volunteer time and provide pro bono services to local nonprofits. When we achieve good all together, we feel more invested in the communities we call home.

Keeping an Earth-Friendly Footprint

We strive to minimize our impact on the planet, and our eco-conscious staff welcomes the challenge. We are mindful about how and what we consume, and always offset 100% of our communal carbon footprint by protecting working forests in Northern California. Both big measurable results and everyday small steps keep the momentum going.

Making Health Happen at the Office

We know that good health imbues good in everything else we do. Our Wellness Committee steps up every year to encourage healthy behavior by rewarding team members for participating in fun activities that make for a more active lifestyle, both in and out of the office.

Yoga

Namaste! We roll out the mats for in-office yoga every Monday afternoon—all levels welcome.

Move More Challenges

We take “a little healthy competition” seriously, with monthly contests for taking the stairs and walking.

Bikes for All

It’s (almost) always a beautiful day for a ride in San Diego. We keep a fleet of free-for-all bikes at the ready.
