What does this mean for you?
We get culture at a deep level; we design our experiences to create lasting change among leaders.
We make a difference in the lives of others.
We build respectful, empathetic, and productive leaders, who are aware of their impact on the world.
ViRTUS is a member of the B Corporation™ movement and we’re proud to be a part of this community of leaders, driving a movement of people using business as a force for good.
Certified B Corporations™ are companies verified by B Lab™ to meet high standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability.
Initially certified in 2019 when we signed the B Corp Declaration of Interdependence, and recertified in 2023, we’re counted among businesses that are leading a global movement for an inclusive, equitable, and regenerative economy. One of the hallmarks of B Corp™ is transparency, you can read more about our certification here.
We’re in great company, with businesses like MEC, Patagonia, Seventh Generation, Pela, and Ben and Jerry’s, MPOWERD, and over 300 Canadian businesses.
In early 2022, ViRTUS officially certified as a Living Wage Employer.
Being a Living Wage Employer means that all our direct and contracted team members are paid (at least) the living wage for our region. The campaign raises awareness of the negative impacts of low-wage poverty on families and communities.
For us, joining the Living Wage Employer campaign supports investment into the local communities where we learn, work, and live. We’ve also successfully recertified in both the 2023 and 2024 campaigns. To check out our announcement, visit our journal article here.
