Welcome to our Communities Page!

Our Commitment to Communities – We Stand for a Fair & Just Society: Be Cause Business Resources, Inc. stands for equal, non-discriminatory treatment and #BlackLivesMatter. We choose to live in a fair and just society. We declare it. We demand it. We end the pledge of allegiance “with liberty and justice for all.” Nothing more really needs to be said…. 

We will not tolerate racism, bigotry and hatred. We will identify it, measure it and if the opportunity arises, we will seek to heal, and re-solve it via education, dialog and professional process tools. It is an organizational development problem. We are in the organizational development business, and we’re experts at it. We stand with organizations like:

Ben & Jerry’s



Organizations are living creatures which are born, mature, become old and then die. Like tribes, nations and civilizations, people invent them. People and all our creations are like art, not perfect, but evolving. At times, a stand must be taken to declare certain actions as unacceptable and inexcusable. We all make mistakes, many a day. Some mistakes are harmless, some are not. Intervention is required to protect the innocent from the inexcusable actions of people making grievous errors which must stop or be stopped.

Be Cause Business Resources is active in professional organizations. From membership, leadership, and speaking engagements, we believe in sharing the message of business optimization and Smart Exit™ and are committed to giving back to our communities whenever and wherever possible.
