Their commitment to employee happiness ranks them in the top 10% for Workers in the 2012 B Lab report. And, this is because they know that happiness matters. "
He said the industry needs to have a more standardized way to answer questions like, "What's a success model? How do I measure it? How do I know that the money isn't being wasted?"
