Following months of rigorous scrutiny and analysis, Radfield Home Care is extremely proud to be the first and only company in the UK healthcare sector to gain the prestigious B CorpTM certification.

A Certified B Corporation® is a company which has clearly demonstrated its commitment to ethical business and has legally pledged to look after its people and the environment.

 

The performance standards B Corps™ meet are comprehensive, transparent and externally verified. They measure a company’s impact on all its stakeholders including its workers, suppliers, community, clients and the environment. Radfield Home Care has met and exceeded all of these standards and delighted that they have received this highly regarded ethical stamp of approval for their business.

Today, there is a growing community of more than 1,900 Certified B Corps from 50 countries and over 130 industries working together toward 1 unifying goal: to redefine success in business.

Radfield Home Care founders & Directors, Dr Hannah MacKechnie and brother Alex Green,  have grown their business with a continued focus on strengthening opportunities for their workforce and improving the quality of care for their clients.

Dr Hannah MacKechnie commented, “We have an exceptional caring service that elderly people and their families can rely on to enable them to remain living independently at home for as long as possible.  Radfield has an outstanding reputation that we have achieved by truly valuing all of our people.  We listen carefully to our clients and their families and employ people who fit our ethos and values, and empower them to go above & beyond.”

“When we first encountered the B Corp movement we knew immediately that it was the right fit for us as it focuses on all of the elements that we have always held dear such as truly valuing our staff and creating a positive culture which can be used to effect positive change.”

The criteria for certification is a comprehensive & exhaustive investigation by a  non-profit third party organisation B Lab®.  The evaluation includes governance impact, evaluating a company’s overall mission, ethics, accountability and transparency.  It looks in detail at the company’s contribution to employee well being, community involvement, charitable giving and diversity and inclusion, all of which are highly valued within Radfield Home Care.

With the exhaustive certification process now complete Radfield Home Care are looking to continue expanding their services through recruiting like-minded franchisees who see the benefit of not simply focusing on profits but of also valuing the positive impact that building businesses based on solid ethical foundations can bring.

Certified B Corporations are leading a global movement of people using business as a force for good and Radfield Home Care are extremely proud to be part of the community which is redefining success in business in the UK.
