For the past 18 years, the Better Business Bureau (BBB) and the BBB Center for Ethics have given awards to students, businesses and nonprofits at the Torch Awards for Marketplace Ethics for aligning with their mission – to provide ethics education, direction, and recognition to the community, for the purpose of strengthening the career lives of future and current employers and employees. The BBB Center for Ethics believes the ideal workplace is built by a superior workforce.
The 18th Annual Torch Awards was held on October 19th and hosted 240 guests and around 70 businesses and nonprofits represented from the Greater Cincinnati, Northern Kentucky and Southeastern Indiana areas. “We have the privilege to learn about many businesses who truly value ethics, especially in industries that we don’t typically think make it a priority. It’s inspiring to see companies that strive to be the best of the best for consumers who are looking for trustworthy businesses. It’s not an easy application and not easy to win…and shouldn’t be for this sets the good and the great apart,” says Trisha Sefakis, Director of Communications for the BBB.
“We were thrilled to be the presenting event sponsor for this extraordinary event,” remarked E. Allan Hilsinger, Founder and CEO of Guard Well Identity Theft Solutions, LLC.
