Vicki Bohlsen of Bohlsen Group and Taking Care In Business

In 2016, Bohlsen Group gave nearly 10% of its revenue back to the community in in-kind services and partnerships.

Vicki Bohlsen is the founder and president of Bohlsen Group, an Indianapolis-based communications firm. Bohlsen Group executes “unified marketing for good” for clients across the country that share their values and mission, creating and implementing marketing and publicity applications for corporations, nonprofit organizations, entertainers, and events.

In 2014, Bohlsen Group became the only B Corp certified company in Indiana, a designation from B Lab that endorses commitment to corporate social responsibility. They were re-certified in 2016. Bohlsen Group was also certified as a Women Business Enterprise in 2016.

Vicki loves Indianapolis and doing business as a force for good! Prior to the B Corp designation, Bohlsen Group provided dozens of clients with pro bono services. Now, as a standard protocol, Bohlsen Group provides reduced rates to nonprofits, B Corp certified and Benefit Corporation companies and gives 10% in services back to each.

In 2016, Bohlsen Group gave nearly 10% of its revenue back to the community in in-kind services and partnerships.

Vicki takes social responsibility seriously and proclaims their B Corp certification helps to keep the company accountable to its every decision both internally with staff and externally with clients, vendors, the environment, and the community. Bohlsen Group has been named one of Indiana’s “Best Places to Work”.

It is Vicki’s hope that the “Taking Care in Business” podcast will help to educate listeners on corporate social responsibility and ignite a fuel inside to work for or help create a workplace for others that rely on the triple bottom line and not just the bottom line.

Listen in as Vick Bohlsen details the background of Bohlsen Good, the meaning behind “Unified Marketing for Good,” and why it’s important for her to give back to Indianapolis.
