Job Description

This certification means GB voluntarily invests in meeting significantly higher standards of sustainability, governance and giving back to the community in our daily operations. It stands for “Business as a Force for Good” versus a belief that business exists only to generate profit. Now more than ever, we want our time and talent applied toward greater purpose. Our mantra, “Leave today better than yesterday” is a simple North Star of an idea that brings us in everyday: improving, inspiring, challenging, creating for better. Our community, relationships, strategies, processes, the work— and especially, ourselves. It’s what motivates GB’s difference: building business for brands that put people first.

The ability to proactively identify the next opportunity/challenge, act with timeliness and urgency, and read people/situations accurately to make good decisions and influence action is critical.
