Good question and 3 simple answers;
First, and foremost, we are a technology company. Sometimes people confuse us with just being experts in bullying, abuse, harassment and discrimination. Although this is true, our focus is the DELIVERY of that content. E-learning was unproven and seen as a risk back in 2004 when we started down this path. So, we had to operate just like any other IT corporation, there were no hand-outs.
Second, our philosophy is that, to succeed as a service/delivery provider our number one priority is our customer. Sometimes, not-for-profit organizations have to satisfy their funders to sustain their income and can lose sight of their end-users. It’s tough to keep “the doors open” either way but we’d rather have our customers make that decision!
Third, by being a corporation, we have full latitude to treat our employees, the environment and our community in a way that supports our corporate values. That is why we are proud to be an accredited B Corp. A rigorous process, yes, but well worth it. This designation sets us apart from just any company and, among many other things, keeps us driven to do things like giving-back +10% of our annual revenues to Canadian not-for-profit organizations. Funny how that works!
