Events

Finding an event to hook your employee wellbeing or sustainability programme around is a great shout. It helps to give you some focus while making your employees feel like they’re part of something far bigger. Empowering stuff!

Below are some events we've picked out as good opportunities for businesses to get involved.

Whether you're looking to build workplace culture, support employee health and wellbeing, or raise your profile as a sustainable business, there should be something for you.

New Year's Resolutions 2019

January is a great time to launch a Do Nation campaign, helping your employees come together to use their resolutions to make the world a better place in 2019. There are lots of health and wellbeing related Do Actions too - some examples below.

Check out our case study of how Hill + Knowlton Strategies used New Year's resolutions to engage 66% of their staff in healthy, environmentally habits.

We're running a B Corp Challenge through January too - which B Corp's staff can make and keep the most pledges? Register below to receive more info on how to join in.

Earth Day: 22nd April 2019

Earth Day is an annual day of political action and civic participation. People march, sign petitions, meet with their elected officials, plant trees, clean up their towns and roads. They also make pledges, start new habits, and inspire others to do the same.

It's a great time to launch an employee pledge challenge, and that's what we're here to help you to do.

The lovely small print

For some events, we may run competitions between organisations or users, to see which can make the most pledges and save the most carbon, water or waste. The terms and conditions may vary between each of these, and will be listed below.

B Corp Challenge: New Year’s Resolutions 2019
  1. The New Year’s Resolution 2019 challenge is open to any Certified or Pending B Corps, anywhere in the world.
  2. Deadline for entry is 28th January 2019.
  3. In order to take part, you must have an active subscription to Do Nation Pro or Plus between January and March 2019. For more information on the subscriptions, pricing, and features, please download our brochure.
  4. We will add all participating B Corps to our B Corp hub page, which shows the cumulative impact B Corps have created over time on Do Nation, as well as a leaderboard ranking them against each other. You can opt not to feature on this if you wish.
  5. The New Year’s Challenge is based on pledges recorded on Do Nation between 1st and 31st January 2019.
  6. We will use the impact data and any quotes resulting from the pledges to promote the efforts of B Corp staff during B Corp Month, February 2019. We also ask you to encourage your staff to share their pledges on social media as part of B Corp month.
  7. As is always the way on Do Nation, each pledge last for 2 months. This means the New Year’s pledges will be ready to confirm during March 2019.
  8. Through January and February, the leaderboard will be ranked by the average number of pledges made per employee, so accounting for differences in company size. During March we will sort the leaderboard by the average number of pledges confirmed per employee.
  9. In time for Earth Day on 22nd April 2019, we will announce the overall impact, and name the ‘winning B Corp’ - based on whose employees have completed the most of their pledges (on a per-person basis). Employees have until 8th April to confirm their pledges.
  10. The winning B Corp will receive a free impact report from Do Nation, digging into the impact of their employees pledges - including on factors such as pride, wellbeing, and contributions towards the SDGs as well as our usual carbon, water, and waste metrics.
