AMS Fulfillment Is on a Mission
Our mission statement clearly sets forth our priorities:
At AMS, we recognize that profit and growth are not goals unto themselves, but merely outcomes of uncompromised attention to our customer, our organization, our community, our environment and ourselves.
From the beginning, this has been our mission, which we often describe as a balanced approach to business. Our mission helped propel us to become a B Corp and a Social Enterprise as we continually invest time and energy into our community, employees and environment.
AMS has a genuine mission to “do good” as a business, so success to us has as much to do with helping individuals develop skills and advance in their careers for the well-being of themselves and their families, as it does with earning profits. We also believe in being earth-conscious and feel we have a special responsibility as a fulfillment company to push for earth-friendly practices.
To B Corp or Not to B Corp
That is no longer the question. In just one meeting with our team, our clients see that giving back to the community runs through our veins! AMS Fulfillment was honored to be designated a Certified B Corporation in December 2017, joining the 3,200+ corporations across 150 industries that hold themselves to the high standard of a B Corporation. In taking this step, we became part of a movement to redefine what it means to be successful.
What, exactly, does it mean to be a Certified B Corporation?
- B Corps are for-profit companies dedicated to using business as a force for good.
- B Corps meet the highest standards of social and environmental performance, transparency and accountability to their stakeholders.
- B Corps use the power of business to help solve our most pressing global challenges.
- Unlike traditional companies, B Corps are legally required to consider the impact of their decisions on all stakeholders: customers, workers, communities and the environment.
B Corporations focus on reducing environmental impact, creating a diverse workforce, developing employee skills and improving conditions for people in our communities. For clients, employees, the community and the environment, AMS is proud to contribute to the betterment of the world as a B Corporation.
All things being equal, wouldn’t you prefer to work with a B Corporation?
Going Green Versus Earning Green
As a fulfillment company, AMS is in a unique position to “go green” by choosing packaging materials and box sizes that are earth friendly and, of course, by recycling all that we can. Reducing the use and volume of harmful waste generated through material selection, production process or product design is best for our planet — and something we encourage our clients to follow.
Our Clients Play a Role in Our Success
We would not be able to do the things that we do as a B Corp and Social Enterprise without our valued clients. We believe that when our clients succeed, we succeed. We go to work each day knowing that our success is fully dependent upon the success of our clients, and we are hyper-focused on driving success for our clients by sharing our knowledge, finding ways to save on costs, and fulfilling orders in a consistent, timely and accurate manner.
Helping People in Our Community
AMS is passionate about our employment practices and community involvement. As a Social Enterprise, we have programs in place at the federal, state and local levels that are giving hope to people who need it most. In fact, we converted one of our office environments into a learning center to educate and advance individuals, many of whom come from disadvantaged circumstances, including individuals with disabilities, people re-entering the workforce after incarceration and at-risk youth.
A good day for us is when an associate moves on to pursue a better opportunity, because we know that we helped him or her achieve this success. That is contrary to the attitudes in most businesses, but AMS takes great pride in educating and developing skills within our workforce.
