Impact Jobs Roundup: People v. Profit Edition
This week, Atticus helps sick and injured people find justice, Modern Energy builds a greener energy future, and Equalize Digital ensures the web is accessible to all.
Perhaps you've heard of the triple bottom line before: people, planet, and profit. Social impact companies are especially good at balancing these needs as they build their businesses. But can any kind of business today become a social impact company, even the most lucrative ones?
And so we turn to this week's featured company: Atticus. Named for the fictional lawyer from To Kill a Mockingbird, Atticus is a unique find-a-lawyer service because it is a law firm itself. They provide free legal advice about disability benefit, workers' compensation, and injury cases then refer those cases to the law firms in their network based on best fit.
One of the things that sets them apart is their brokerage model – instead of selling advertising space on their website, they receive a portion of the proceeds from a successful case. In that way, their incentives are aligned with the needs of the sick and injured people they support. I'll admit, I can be skeptical of lawyers sometimes – live in Florida long enough, and you'll see enough ambulance chasers to last a lifetime – but Atticus gives me hope that even the most affluent professions can find a way to balance people and profit.
