Business as a Force for Good
A market solution to climate change, SunCommon is a Vermont public benefit corporation and a certified BCorp – committed to the triple bottom line of people, planet and profit. And yeah, people here do come first.
In addition to meaningful work, we provide for our people. Since SunCommon supports single-payer health care, we pay 100% of health insurance premiums for our beloved employees and their families, and the deductibles too. 100% of dental insurance premiums for them and their families. Paid time off and holidays. Contribution to retirement or student loans. Short and long-term disability. Life insurance. Profit-sharing. Dog-friendly office. Private lactation room. You get the idea, our employees are the Company, so we care for our people.
We bring everyone together each month for an All Company meeting — where we present open-book financials, reveal and discuss plans, celebrate business successes and admit shortcomings — so each employee knows what’s going on in their company and sees their role in our collective impact. We cater lunch that day, so folks can spend time with each other – especially across teams to generate awareness and appreciation for the many roles and cool people here.
Clean Energy Digs
SunCommon operates out of energy-positive headquarters in Waterbury. Our building has no furnace, so just doesn’t burn fossil fuel. The solar panels on the roof and canopies provides all our energy, and then some which we provide to customers in the community. Electric vehicle charging stations fuel employee cars, the EVs in the company fleet and warehouse forklifts. Clean energy is happening, now.
We annually seek feedback from our employees on what’s working and how to serve them better. This includes benefits, training, work-life balance, the works.
