InStep Consulting is a Best for NYC Finalist

The best businesses don’t just make a profit — they improve the quality of life in the communities in which they operate.

That’s what I believe and why I'm proud to be a 2015 Best for NYC Finalist.

How is InStep Consulting Best for NYC? 

I completed the B Impact Assessment, a comprehensive assessment that measures a company’s impact on workers, the community and the environment. And I've made a commitment to improve our resutls. That means I'm measuring our success by our ability to create stronger communities, high quality jobs, and a healthier city. Read more about the Best for NYC campaign HERE.

As a Finalist in this first-ever municipally-led impact campaign, InStep is part of a larger, global movement to redefine success in business so that, one day, all companies strive to be not only the best IN their cities, but the best FOR their cities. InStep is among over 1,200 NYC companies that have committed to measuring their impact and making improvements — check out all the Best for NYC campaign participants HERE!

I am passionate about building a better business so that InStep can continue to uplift our community and invest in our team. I couldn’t do that without the support of people like you who believe in our mission — people who prove that doing good is good for business. Thank you for helping me to succeed where it truly matters.

I am proud to be Best FOR NYC!
