We’re busy wrapping up more than gifts here at Prosper for Purpose — we’re also wrapping up the year. Our offices will be closed Christmas week so #TeamProsper can spend time with loved ones. But before we go, we want to share what we’re grateful for this year.
Our clients inspire us whether they’re transforming their communities or changing the world. They are purpose-driven people leading companies and nonprofits, consultancies and educational institutions. We choose our clients carefully and they, in turn, challenge us to bring our best each and every day.
We continued to live our motto of using ‘communications for a better world’ by helping these clients achieve social and environmental impact by building relationships that matter. In 2017, these relationships were built through strategic storytelling, branding and fundraising, mixed with social media, event management, and much, much more.
While the U.S. and the world saw some setbacks this year in terms of global sustainability and social justice, we are encouraged to be part of a rising tide of business as a force for good. We believe any setbacks are sure to be temporary as we raise our voices and increase our efforts around issues that matter.
As a two-year member of the B Corp community, Prosper is proud to be one of more than 2,300 Certified B Corps from 50 countries and more than 130 industries working together toward one unifying goal: to redefine success in business in terms of people, planet and profit. We at Prosper have added a fourth term: purpose.
At Prosper, we practice a servant leadership model of management because we know the best leaders are those who help others be their best. In the day-to-day, this looks a lot like friendship. Everyone has a seat at our table, everyone has a voice. We were honored to receive “Team of the Year” award at the PRSA Cleveland Rocks award banquet earlier this month. We can’t wait to see what is to come for our team in 2018.
We recently completed our annual PDPs (personal development plans). As we plan for 2018, we will be figuring out how we can best support and empower each other to meet our goals, both inside and outside of work. To us, Prosper for Purpose is not just a company, it’s a mantra.
