I have never met Tim Frick but was introduced to him via email yesterday when Andrew Boardman of Manoverboard Design sent me a link to an article Tim wrote that mentions some of my thoughts on the RFP process.
Tim is the CEO of Mightybytes, a Certified B Corporation and one of Illinois’ first legal Benefit Corporations, and a digital firm committed to creating positive environmental and social change.
Both Tim and Andrew decided years ago to commit to sustainable business practices by switching their firms to B Corporations – for-profit companies certified by the nonprofit B Lab to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency.
While many firms claim to use sustainable practices, B Corp firms are held to a higher standard by the folks at B Lab. They describe it as “B Corp is to business what Fair Trade certification is to coffee or USDA Organic certification is to milk” – an objective third party audit and endorsement of their claims.
It was this type of mindset that Tim brought to his article on the RFP process. It’s worth the read especially because it incorporates the thoughts of so many other individuals.
I encourage you to read and share Tim’s article.
