2015 BBB Torch Award Winners Announced

2015 Torch Award Winners Announced!
July 16, 2015

BBB Serving Metro Atlanta, Athens & Northeast Georgia is honored to announce our 2015 Torch Award for Ethics recipients. BBB’s format is based on the Center for Character Ethics and specifically the Ethical/Enterprising Framework.

Entrants were asked to complete questions and provide documentation based on the following Six Principles of Trust:

  1. Leaders are reflective and intentionally work to increase manifestations of their own high character in the culture.
  2. Leaders reinforce and build a culture of high character ethics.
  3. Leaders unify the organization around a clear purpose and compelling convictions.
  4. Leaders guide organizational performance by implementing high competency management practices.
  5. Leaders prize the intrinsic value of people.
  6. Leaders generously support the community that supports them.

All entries were reviewed and scored by leaders in our community who have a deep understanding of ethics. Our judges were impressed with the new format and the quality of information required to qualify for a Torch Award. Companies did compete in different size categories so the submission material would be equal.

We are proud to introduce our 2015 Torch Award for Ethics Winners:

Category II- Elite Home Management Services

Category III – Aquaguard Foundation Solutions

Category IV- APCO/EasyCare

BBB thanks all of our entrants, our esteemed judges for their time and dedication to the process and of course, our winners.
