DREAM receives JUST 2.0 Social Justice Label
October 25, 2019 –
DREAM Collaborative is the first company in Boston to receive a JUST 2.0 label, a voluntary disclosure tool that serves as a “nutrition label” for socially just and equitable organizations. The program aligns closely with DREAM’s mission and values, and reflects our commitment to supporting a diverse and inclusive workplace; nurturing a healthy culture of high trust within our firm; and fostering a working environment where all employees feel valued and have a strong sense of purpose.
The JUST platform was created by the International Living Future Institute (ILFI) as an innovative way for organizations to be transparent about their operations, including how they treat their employees and what their impact is on their communities. The program requires reporting and documentation on a range of indicators, each requiring specific and measurable accountability which is ranked and published on the JUST label.
Being a JUST organization translates into many benefits for DREAM employees. Thanks to the rigorous process to receive a JUST label, we have already taken steps to improve our culture and become more inclusive for all employees.
- We have initiated new employee benefits for 2020 including paid time off for volunteer activities and more flexible work arrangements
- We’re reevaluated our pay policy to institute consistent pay scales and regular salary review to eliminate any pay gaps.
While we are very proud of our first JUST label, we are even more excited to see the next iteration.
