We’re supporting 27 seconds this Christmas

For the past few years, we have purchased native New Zealand trees as an annual Christmas gift for our customers.  You can find out more here.

While we love this organisation and continue to support their initiatives this year we have decided to do something different and we have gifted our customers bottles of the amazing wine from 27 seconds …. and here is why.

It’s been a random year and we need a drink

This year has been full of ups and downs for us personally, for many of our customers, and for the world as a whole. All in all, it’s been a random busy year, without a break for our entire team, and on top of that we had to listen to the word pivot 1,678,986 times …. we need a drink, and so do our customers.

We wanted to support local and show off what our country has to offer.

Not only are we committed to supporting other local New Zealand businesses, and most importantly to us, Cantebury-based, we have many customers in different parts of the world and we wanted to give them a little taste of New Zealand …. literally.

We like to support a cause.

We’re not keen on sending out tacky branded gifts that just get thrown in the bin and we would prefer there to be a ‘feel good’ and ‘doing good’ factor to our giving at Christmas.  The story of 27 seconds is awesome and ticks all the boxes.  You can find out more about the company and its name here.

We hope you all have a wonderful Christmas!

 

 

Did you know that Unicef estimate 1.2 million children are sold into slavery every year. When you break that statistic down it works out to be one every 27 seconds.

 

Why we are no longer a B Corporation

As of this month, Happy Monday Ltd is no longer a certified B Corporation.

Our business practices have not changed and going through the B Impact assessment helped us to establish how we wanted to run our business when we first established it back in 2014. It has had a positive impact on our business and our procedures.

So why are we no longer certified?

While going through the recertification process we have realised that we are unable to dedicate the time and resources required to maintain the documentation and processes that need to be fulfilled in order to gain the minimum 80 points required to keep certification.  Our focus needs to remain on the needs of our customers.

We remain extremely supportive of the B Corp movement, which strives to align the interests of business with the interest of society as a whole. We are proud to have been New Zealand’s first digital agency, and of the earliest companies to adopt the B corporation way of being.

We may evaluate our position in the future but until that time we would like you to know that our practices will continue to reflect the values of the B Corporation movement and we will strive to use our business as a force for good.
