We are thrilled! I just opened my mail today to learn that we are a finalist in the Better Business Bureau's Torch Awards.
The BBB Torch Award was created to recognize a firm whose business practices and related activities exemplify the BBB's mission of promoting, through self-regulation, the highest standards of business ethics and conduct.
Candidates for the 2008 Better Business Bureau Torch Award will be judged on their ethical practices according to the following guidelines:
- High ethical standards of behavior toward customers, suppliers, users, shareholders, employees, and the communities in which they do business;
- Long-standing history/reputation of ethical practices in the marketplace;
- Ethics policies that are effectively communicated to employees;
- Ethics policies that are designed to give long-term value to shareholders and customers;
We are honored to be among the finalists for this award. Wish us luck! The award winners (in various business size categories) will be announced on January 30, 2008!
