The Better Business Bureau awards a torch award for ethics each and every year. In 2017 there was a construction company in Lake Zurich who won the award. This award went to Aloha Construction. If you don’t already know, Aloha Construction is based out of Illinois. To say that they are happy to get this year’s Tourch Award for Marketplace Ethics is an understatement.
When the judges are judging the compitition there are several things that they are looking for. Aloha was selected based on their very high industry standards. Things like leadership, responsibility in their social practices and more all play an important part in the selection process. The company must have ethics with both the peole who work with them and the customer base they do business with.
There are a number of things that the judges look for. For example, you have to be a leader who is committed to an ethical set of practices. This includes in their work life and their personal life. Aloha Construction fits into this category and they also do something else that the judges look for, they communicate their ethics in everything they do. This also helps to unify the organization as a whole. These things are tips of the ice-burg but, they are needed to be in the running for the award. Aloha Construction meets every single one of the things the judges are looking for.
Aloha’s community service record speaks for it’s self in many ways. They have partnered with Learning Express on a toy spree shopping event, helped a family in need with Omni Youth Services and continued to show an outpour if love within the community. As a local, family owned business, Aloha does their best to make sure they continue to give back as part of their business practice. The company also sent a bow with congestive heart failure and several of his friends to a Chicago Bulls game. Aloha cares deeply about humankind and their local community. They prove this not just in their service to the community through the work they do, but, also by continuing to give back through their charitable efforts.
