At VOX, we believe a successful business combines purpose with profit to create long-term value for its customers, employees, shareholders; and, the communities where it operates. The VOX Responsible and Sustainable Business Practices team works with clients to identify, design and communicate responsible and sustainable business practices that enhance their reputation and strengthen both their bottom line and the communities where their employees live and work. Our team members understand the environment many of our clients face in their efforts to drive change inside and outside their companies and the need to speak the language of their internal and external stakeholders in order to be successful. We understand what motivates conscious consumers, as well as the complex dynamics that influence business decisions. That knowledge allows us to help our clients integrate social and environmental issues into core business strategies. Our experience helps clients overcome challenges, enhance their company’s reputation, protect their bottom line, and grow their business.

Education Education is one of the most important public policy issues of the day with significant consequences for our nation's future. Significant investments are being made at both the K-12 and higher education level to address the fact that American students have fallen behind their peers around the world in reading, math and science. This search for solutions involves many stakeholders including students, parents, educators, philanthropists, policy-makers and the business community. Our team has experience working with all these stakeholders, as well as the media. We work with clients that are on the cutting edge of the rapidly developing online learning environment; building public-private partnerships to increase teacher effectiveness and student achievement; engaging parents, teachers and the community in local education policy discussions; and exploring new approaches to the critical need to interest more students in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) careers.
