Service is a core Point B value. Through leadership, charity and compassion, the firm and our employee owners strive to make a difference in our communities every day. Point B invests in community impact through several mechanisms, including direct financial contributions, pro bono and reduced-rate services, sponsorships and the firm's support of associate volunteerism.
Point B's model can generate more community impact per associate than road-weary professional services firms because the vast majority of our work is sourced and staffed locally. Studies show that most locally spent money stays local—paying for services, supplies, staff, inventory, and other costs of doing business. Each transaction can create, on average, three times more income, jobs and wealth for the local community. Click here to learn more about Point B’s community involvement.
Community Sponsorship Programs
As a firm of employee owners who live and work in the markets we serve, Point B strives to better our communities every day. In support of this mission, we have created an evolving collection of Community Impact programs that support out people, clients and communities through volunteerism, leadership and financial support.

Local Sourcing Talent Model
Living and working in the same place benefits more than just our associates. Because the vast majority of our client engagements are staffed locally, our firm – and our people – generate most of our economic activity in the communities in which we live and serve by buying, producing and investing locally.
Giving Nonprofits a LIFT
In 2015, resource manager Alison Bickford took a close look at the question, “How do we better utilize our people while they are not on a client engagement?" Her idea: the Lift concept, which offers short-term consulting services to the local nonprofit community. Nonprofit organizations benefit from access to top-tier consulting resources at significantly discounted rates. And our associates benefit from the opportunity to take on interesting and challenging work while contributing to the community in a meaningful way. Read More
Service - Creating Opportunities for Women and Girls in Africa
Donna Verhasselt joined our firm with a passion for philanthropic action. Point B’s emphasis on life/work balance gives her the opportunity to take summers off and focus on her philanthropic passions: empowering women and girls in Zambia through education initiatives that reduce poverty and encourage sustainable practices. “I have yet to run into someone who has the flexibility I have, yet manages to have an engaging professional career. I can be an active mom, an impactful professional and an engaged philanthropist because of Point B.” Read More
