BBB Center for Ethics Carrying the Torch (Awards)

This year, the Torch Awards for Marketplace Ethics has both a new venue and a new attitude: the Renaissance Hotel and BBB Center for Ethics’ updated image, respectively. The Center is the perfect presenter of this premier event, as their programs encompass an array of ethics-focused services, ones that provide ethics education, direction and recognition to employers and employees of today and tomorrow.
