Last year was chockablock full of IPOs whose stocks boomed after trading on the public markets. One of the companies that benefited from this trend was The Container Store (NYSE:TCS), which offers a plethora of products to help Americans organize their over-crowded homes.
The company went public at $18 per share and currently trades at $44 per share, a 145% increase in just a matter of months. But beyond a successful debut on the markets, lots of people are talking about the company's commitment to conscious capitalism.
One of the key tenets of conscious capitalism is letting your employees know that their work is integral to the success of the company, and backing that sentiment up in tangible ways. But as Motley Fool contributor Brian Stoffel points out in the following video, some are wondering if The Container Store is really living up to its mission.
