Dansko, the West Grove-based footwear company, has earned the B Corp Best for Workers award from B Lab, which recognizes companies' treatment of their workers through compensation, benefits, training and ownership opportunities. It also focuses on the overall work environment within the company through management/worker communication, job flexibility and corporate culture, and worker health and safety practices.

"The B Corp Best for Workers honorees are the companies people want to work for and invest in because they've proven they're the best of the best by meeting rigorous, comprehensive third-party standards people can trust," said Jay Coen Gilbert, co-founder of B Lab, a nonprofit organization dedicated to using the power of business to solve social and environmental problems.

"For Dansko, success isn't just about dollars and cents. It's about enhancing the well-being of everyone whose lives our business impacts," said Mandy Cabot, Dansko co-founder, president and CEO. "We are proud to be honored as among the best of an already elite group of companies - not the best in the world, but the best for the world."

B Lab recognizes companies that meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. These companies bear the distinction of Certified B Corporation or B Corp. The 'B Corp Best for Workers List' honors businesses that earned an overall score in the top 10 percent of all Certified B Corporations.
