We all have a vested interest in supporting businesses and organizations that “do well by doing good” because ethical practices and social responsibility contribute to the mental and emotional health of those employed by them and who benefit from their services.
We look to this program as a way to honor the highest standards of ethics, to broaden the discussion of ethics in the community and to provide opportunities to sponsors and participants for education. The program has generated widespread community support and the Samaritan Counseling Center is grateful to those who volunteer their time and expertise to make this award a successful event!
Nominate a Business or Organization for the Ethics in Business Award!
Businesses and nonprofit organizations will be evaluated based on how they demonstrate the five principles – Integrity, Fairness & Justice, Stewardship, Life-Enhancing and Transparency – in their conduct with staff, customers, vendors, donors and the community. Individual nominees should be models and mentors for others as well as leaders in their business field. Please view the award criteria here as well as examples of how a business, organization or individual might demonstrate these criteria.
The Ethics in Business Award program has established a conflict of interest policy.
