When a business, especially one that is family-owned, wins one of the most prestigious Business Ethics awards then that business has reached the heights it wanted to. This was the height that Aloha Construction company from Illinois reached when it was awarded the BBB Torch Award in 2017. The award is awarded to companies that have shown great ethical practices to not only the customer but the community, employees, and other business or working partners. The award is presented to the winning finalist with the courtesy of Better Business Bureau.
The award can be mistaken for being one of those low-level awards. However, the rigorous screening process and the listing is world class. This process is undertaken by highly professional independent and enthusiastic panel of judges. The panel goes through a large pool of companies, scrutinizing their leadership, social responsibility, and even best practices and shortlist only companies with very high ethical standards.
The companies shortlisted should meet all of the following minimums. First, the management from top down should conform to very high levels of ethical practices. They should have their ethical practices written in the DNA of their leadership. Secondly, this ethical practices should be well communicated and inculcated directly to the employees. The ethical practices should not only be written on the mission statement but seen to be communicated and practiced. Thirdly, the human resource needs to have ethical practices. Lastly and most importantly, the ethical practices should be seen through the company’s interaction with the community. These are some of the checklists that the panel checked to select Aloha Construction as the 2017 winner.
