BRINGING WORK WITH MEANING TO LIFE
We believe people care more about the work they do than ever before.
But finding work with "meaning" is easy to say and hard to find.
Out of thousands of applications, we’re selecting the very best impact companies that do things in the right way and showcasing each company in a more entertaining, inspirational & transparent way as we move towards a new world of working.
WHY DO IMPACT COMPANIES MATTER?
Accelerating the impact movement benefits all of us.
Together, we have an opportunity to truly inspire a generation to think about making an impact through their work and careers. Imagine if we could inspire and encourage the wider world to consider working somewhere where they find meaning. Where their careers make a difference on important issues.
What impact would that have on the world?

NETFLIX STYLE TRAILER
Your culture in 90 seconds
Bring to life what it means and feels like to work inside your company. Just like a Netflix trailer gets us excited about the new drama series.
Created by hyer, we will bring to life the impact you are having and what it means to your employees to be making a difference in their work. This is one of the most entertaining ways to show future employees what their life will be like with you and show customers your behind-the-scenes.
(Created by our in-house creative team either remotely or in person. This does NOT require any additional work or cost from you. )
"Authentic stories of the impact we’re having, told by our team, give potential candidates a glimpse into how they may feel working here. Plus it reminds our team of the important work they are already doing."
TOMAS AFTALIAN, CO-FOUNDER AT PACHAMA
DESIGNED BY IMPACT LEADERS
First of its kind people report, created by leaders in the
Talent and People world.
Much like an impact report measures your sustainability initiatives. This is your People Report, accurately measuring how connected your employees are to your mission, how much they personally feel like they are making a difference and how much they feel the company is making a significant impact on the mission.
Most companies make bold claims about their missions and culture. Talent no longer trusts these claims. The People Report is designed to independently vet companies in order to transparently showcase back to potential candidates and customers.
You will receive a design-focused report of why you have won the award from over 1000's of other companies, how you scored on the employee survey, and why you are an important and meaningful place to work - told by our Impact leaders to give more social proof to each company.
Stand out from the crowd and build instant trust by showing your customers and candidates that you have been vetted by Impact Leaders in keys areas.
INSTANT, TRANSPARENT JOBS.
SHOWCASED ON THE AWARDS PAGE.
Your DE&I-approved live job roles will be beautifully displayed directly on your award page, showcased in a way that talent loves and responds to.
All job profiles will be assessed and advised to improve your DE&I by our Impact Leaders from Heads of DE&I at Innocents, Google & Gymshark.
Removing the outdated and unengaging job specs with intelligently designed transparent job profiles that inspire and show the "behind the scenes" of the company.
As an Impact 50 winner, you will be able to instantly display up to 3 live jobs at any time, for 12 months, free of charge.
This does NOT require any additional work or cost from you.
"Purpose is deeply personal, the more transparent we as companies can be upfront, the better people can self select where they belong."
JONATHAN MILDENHALL, FORMER CMO AT AIRBNB & IMPACT LEADER AT HYER
CERTIFIED TRANSPARENT HIRING.
DESIGNED BY PEOPLE LEADERS.
Headspace announces transparent hiring commitement
Certified Transparent Hiring is an important new standard created by Impact & People Leaders that holds companies accountable for how they present themselves to potential employees. It is the right thing to do.
You will receive a Certified Transparent Hiring Report & Banner, which you can use to show future employees and customers that you are committed and accountable.
This certification allows companies to stand out, prove that they have been vetted by industry leaders, and build instant trust and credibility with candidates and customers.
