ATLANTA, July 18, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Boutique ERISA and employment law firm Hall Benefits Law (HBL), serving employer plan sponsors and benefit service provider clients in 40 states, is proud to announce its national certification as a Women’s Business Enterprise by the Greater Women’s Business Council, a regional certifying partner of the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC). WBENC Certification is the gold standard for women-owned business certification in the United States.
Anne Tyler Hall, HBL’s Managing Partner, says, “While HBL has always been 100% woman-owned, the benefits of being certified are inarguable – through this certification we hope to raise public awareness of successful woman-owned businesses making an impact both locally and nationally, and HBL will gain access to business resources that will magnify our unique abilities as ERISA counsel and extend our reach to serve more businesses than ever before.”
The WBENC standard of certification implemented by the Greater Women’s Business Council is a meticulous process, including an in-depth review of the business and a site inspection. The certification process is designed to confirm the business is at least 51% owned, operated, and controlled by a woman or women, and that the business has appropriate structure, strategic business planning, and implementation in place.
By including women-owned businesses among their suppliers, corporations and government agencies demonstrate their commitment to fostering diversity and the continued development of their supplier diversity programs, which in turn empowers women as leaders and brings about a more diverse, balanced, and sustainable economy.
WBENC Certification, combined with professional development and engagement in the WBENC network, provides unsurpassed opportunities year-round, both virtually and in-person, for women-owned businesses to grow and expand their business and innovation through events, programming, and connections with major corporations and other WBEs.
