Overview

Every day the news is filled with stories about corporate greed and irresponsible executives. Where are the companies that do good in the world, empower their employees, and truly care about their customers?

Right here. Heart & Soul profiles five remarkable companies that will inspire all of us to bring a little more heart and soul into the workplace:

MARY KAY, INC.-founded by America's most successful woman entrepreneur who wanted to provide opportunities to other women. Today, more than 2 million women in thirty-seven countries sell its products.

DAVITA-dedicated to becoming the world's best dialysis company. America's number one provider of dialysis treatment, DaVita treats its patients and employees like family members.

INRETURN-committed to hiring, training, and employing men and women with brain injuries and other neurological challenges. InRETURN's success validates that caring for others enhances the bottom line.

STARKEY LABORATORIES-devoted to providing free hearing aids to the underprivileged around the world. Each year the founder and company associates at America's largest manufacturer of hearing devices travel the globe to furnish 100,000-plus aids to hearing-impaired children and others.

WORLD WIDE TECHNOLOGY-founded and built on biblical principles that champion the belief that doing the right thing is the right way to do business. It is the largest African American-owned company in the United States.

These companies teach us a lesson too many have forgotten-doing the right thing isn't at odds with financial success. Very often it is the key to success.
