Steinberg Hart has received the JUST label from the International Living Future Institute (ILFI). JUST is, simply put, a nutrition label for socially just and equitable organizations. It is not a certification program, but rather a transparency platform for organizations to disclose information about their operations, including employee well-being and where they make financial and community investments.
This required reporting is on a range of organization- and employee-related indicators. Each indicator outlines measurable accountabilities in order for us to be recognized at four levels of performance in the following categories:
– Diversity & Inclusion
– Employee Health
– Employee Benefits
– Purchasing & Supply Chain
This label is a representation of our commitment to increased transparency, social justice and equity, and gives us an indication of how we are upholding our values as a company. We are particularly proud that the data reflects our commitment to supporting a well-rounded, thriving, and diverse team, ensuring equitable pay, and promoting employee well-being. Especially important to us was our high level of employee engagement, determined through an anonymous survey of all Steinberg Hart employees. This is particularly significant, as the survey was sent nearly six months into 2020’s work-from-home environment.
Ultimately, the JUST label serves as a valuable benchmark for Steinberg Hart. It goes beyond demonstrating our corporate social responsibility – it allows us to understand ourselves better, identify areas for improvement, take pride in our successes, and see ourselves through the lens of designing a just future.
