Digital Brand Expressions’ Impact Pledge

We are an active participant in the movement to make business more ethical, respectful, and considerate.

DBE fosters a safe, supportive company culture where people are taken care of not only as employees, but as whole people. We believe in fair compensation, that good ideas can come from anywhere, and in loving your job with clear health and wellness boundaries. With these sincere beliefs as our foundation, our team is encouraged to spark change internally as well as externally.

Here is what we’re doing to inspire positive change in the world:

1. Environmental and Social

  • Employee charitable donation-matching up to $500/year per employee.
  • We encourage employees to volunteer for community service by enabling them to do some of their volunteer work during regular business hours.
  • Niki’s Notes also advocates for businesses that grow by fostering respectful, considerate workplaces. Each issue provides news, info, data, and tips for people at all levels of organizations to improve the work environment for everyone.
  • DBE was hybrid working since 2013. In 2020, which shifted to fully remote, DBE has reduced commuting emissions and paper usage, while increasing employees’ work/life balance with flexible hours. We are actively sharing what we’re learning to help educate other businesses optimize their company cultures for a hybrid work world.

2. Equality

  • Niki has been active in advancing equality for all women in the workplace (and society) as a member of several organizations including Chief, the Women Presidents Organization (WPO) and WE League. She is also a past board member of Rider University’s Women’s Leadership Council.
  • We believe in allyship beyond supporting women. We support a number of organizations that are working to bring diversity and inclusion to the forefront. For example, our clients have included a SaaS company removing bias from the hiring process and another is a pioneer in the DEI space. We regularly support organizations including 10,000 Degrees, Black Girls CODE, the Bayard Rustin Center for Social Justice, and numerous organizations focused on ensuring children from all backgrounds have healthy head starts in life.
