ADLIB, one of Bristol’s best-known recruiters for Technology, Data, Marketing and Creative, has announced it has become a B Corp. 

B Lab, the non-profit, behind the notifications says that “B Corp Certification is a highly selective status. Companies must document their positive impact to qualify and undergo verification every three years to maintain their certification. It is one of the only certifications, not for a product or service, but for the whole business.”

The award comes from ADLIB’s long-standing belief in business for good. Adlib focus on its people, supporting the community, driving inclusion and working hard to be ‘more than a recruitment company’. 

Individually, B Corps meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability. They aspire to use the power of markets to solve social and environmental problems.

B Corp principles have run through ADLIB’s blood since the early days. In 2019, they were presented with the opportunity to formalise their commitments via accreditation and grasped it with both hands. 

Nick Dean, MD says “This is a golden moment in ADLIB history and the start of something even greater. With a projected 20% headcount growth in 2019/20, the B Corp Certification has not only solidified the commitment the team has made to each other, the community and the environment, but also gives us a platform from which to recruit and attract those that want to join us on our mission.’


ADLIB joins more than 2,500 Certified B Corporations from around the world.
