Sustainability


Commitment to Sustainability

Across the organization we believe that a sustainable business is dependent on economic vitality, social equity and a healthy, natural environment. These goals are not mutually exclusive, but inextricably linked for our growing business. As leaders with a great passion for the future of our community, we are committed to developing, facilitating and encouraging sustainable business practices that meet the needs of the present without compromising the welfare of future generations.

We have developed strategies and purchasing policies that have enabled us to move towards sustainability while enhancing the value we bring to our clients, candidates and our employees. A preference for local suppliers, brokers and vendors has been an outgrowth of our Be:Well team efforts towards both personal and environmental health. A triple value in our book.
