what's with the purple sheep?
After interviewing professionals in corporate social responsibility, non-profit and social purpose businesses, we realized there were alternative career options that allowed you to use your skills for good without sacrificing a paycheque. We started calling these professionals, the Purple Sheep, as they've successfully broken away from the herd. The image of a Purple Sheep has become our symbol for the corporate dreamer who uses their skills for good.
How do we define meaningful?
Examples of Bmeaningful jobs include a sustainability manager for a retailer, a social finance professional for an investment firm, an accountant for a non-profit or a marketing manager for a B Corp. Focusing on meaningful jobs ensures that you get access to talented professionals with the skills and the passion you are looking for.
As two self-proclaimed Purple Sheep, Amanda and Devon know the importance of doing meaningful work.
During business School, Amanda worked as a marketing intern for a consumer package goods company and realized that it was more important for her to believe in the mission of the brand than selling one more cracker. With that “AHA” moment, she broke away from the herd and pursued marketing for a global NGO before starting Bmeaningful.
Early in Devon's professional career, he also worked for a consumer packaged goods company putting his Engineering training to use. The company was great and the people were amazing but he couldn't get past the idea that there had to be more to a job than what amounted to packaging cookies. Devon made his move and broke away from herd, changing his career path to work in renewable energy.
