Recognizing the best companies at social impact and employee engagement

Why The WeHero 100 Started

The social impact that companies create and the way they engage their employees in that impact is more important now than ever before. The global and societal challenges we face are far reaching, and companies and teams have the power to create the difference.

Creating impact and engagement at this scale is incredibly challenging. That's why we felt it was essential to launch the WeHero 100 to highlight the top 100 companies doing this work and making incredible change.

Every month, WeHero does a profile and announces a new company to the WeHero 100 with the goal of acknowledging their work and sharing learnings and best practices with aspiring companies and teams looking to engage more team members and create a culture of impact and change.

Join us in celebrating these change makers!
