Ethics in Business

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!
