ProfVal is a purpose-driven small business, so what does that mean?
To us, it means improving equality.
In 1848, Horace Mann famously described education as "the great equalizer of the conditions of men, the balance wheel of the social machinery". We believe that education, effort, and perseverance are equalizers, but only when employment and educational opportunities are also equal. ProfVal's purpose and reason for existence is to improve equality in employment opportunities. By providing high quality, ethically-produced, research-based Expert Opinion Letters, ProfVal seeks to play an important role in facilitating opportunities for talented women and men. We seek to increase education surrounding employment-based visas by publishing free content on our research blog and on h1bexpert.com. By donating part of our profits through profval.org to charities that increase educational opportunities for under-served communities, we seek to make educational opportunities more equal.
Through socially responsible business practices and contributions to our communities, we strive to play a small part in transforming the world for the better.
Did you know that 99.7% of US businesses are small businesses (1) and we believe that small businesses like ours can make our country and world a better place.
Social responsibility in business practices
We believe that business worth doing must be done ethically and responsibly. In our business practices, we take care to ensure that:
our clients are treated with professionalism and respect
we provide the best quality within the industry. As a majority professor-owned company, we strictly examine our evaluators and will only include people who have earned their credentials from respected institutions within their fields and have maintained their professional certifications.
evaluators meet high academic standards based on their credentials and provide evaluations to the best of their ability
evaluations will only be based on information that we and/or evaluators believe to be accurate
evaluators have the option to reject a case for any reason. We will not treat an evaluator differently if he/she rejects a case.
we ask evaluators to reject a case and we will reject it if they and/or we have reason to believe that the candidate or position does not meet our standards of ethics.
Social responsibility in our communities through profval.org
We believe that our services benefit talented foreign workers and US companies. We also believe that companies have an obligation to strengthen their communities by promoting education, inclusion, and social welfare. We pledge to contribute at least 3% to charities that strengthen communities in the United States and worldwide. Contributions may represent a combination of profits (no less than 1%) and our time through services.
