People often ask: why do we do what we do?
At Ribose, our goal is to positively impact society by helping people work together in an effective way.
The purpose of any company is to advance goals shared by its members. But these goals need to be aligned with benefits to society, a requirement which is often neglected. As Peter Drucker said, a company exists only to provide value to society.
The reason is obvious. The continued success of any company relies on a healthy customer base and workforce. Pursuing a goal counter to society’s interests threatens a company’s existence, setting it on a path to ruin. Doing good for society actually benefits a company significantly by providing support to its very basis, society itself.
Ribose is not a non-profit, but Ribose exists to serve the community. Doing good is our DNA.
