Awarded on Thursday, October 20th, 2016
The company was the recipient of the 2016 BBB Torch Award in the Large Business Category on October 20, 2016. The event was held at the Infinity Park Events Center, where the Better Business Bureau honored all of this year’s semifinalists.
According to the Better Business Bureau, “The Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics is the most prestigious award the BBB can present to a business or nonprofit.” In order to compete for the award, businesses and nonprofits go through an extensive review and interview process to demonstrate their commitment to ethics and excellence. An independent panel of judges grade companies based on five criteria, including management practices, community/investor/stakeholder relations, marketing practices, and industry reputation. These criteria are based on the standards developed by the Council of Better Business Bureaus for the International Torch Awards.
