In 2017 a family general contracting and home-improvement business was awarded the torch award for ethical is in its practices by the Better Business Bureau. This is an award that is incredibly prestigious due to the strict standards that have been set by the independent panel of judges which select the companies with which to award it to. Every single year companies are nominated and driven through a selective screening process. In 2017 Aloha Construction, an Illinois construction company was awarded the torch award for ethics. There were a number of reasons that this decision was made including the contributions that have been made to the local community by Aloha Construction.
The torch award was first created in 1996 as part of an effort to better recognize companies that operated with incredible leadership and social responsibility. In particular, the companies who held incredibly high standards regarding their business practices in the ethics behind them have been favored by the award. Aloha Construction company is incredibly proud to have been given this prestigious award.
In order to qualify for the support, there are six areas that a company must meet specific criteria. The leadership staff of the company must demonstrate an incredible commitment to ethical business practices in both their life and the work of their company. The leaders that work for the company must also build a culture in the business that values the communication of ethical business practices. These leaders must also work to help create a strong sense of unity within their business around these convictions. There must also be a clear demonstrated organizational commitment to management practices that help to implement high competency as well as high character. Finally, there must also be an obvious commitment to the development of their community as an organization.
Aloha Construction has demonstrated all of these aspects. One of the many ways that Aloha Construction has been able to demonstrate these key characteristics is through their charitable community service works that they have launched in order to help their community. For a company that is owned by a family, they have an incredibly diverse number of community service projects.
