The Better Business Bureau takes its time in awarding the prestigious Torch award to a company that has exhibited excellence when it comes to ethical practices inside their business on an annual basis. The process is a bit rigorous as there is a screening by an independent panel that eventually casts their votes as judges. It was in 2017, Aloha Construction took home the coveted Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics. Aloha Construction, based in Illinois, has had many reasons to be selected as the recipient of this cherished accolade.
The Torch Award came about back in 1996. It’s sole purpose is to recognize companies that have demonstrated leadership, stellar practices, social responsibility and held top standards when it comes to handling their ethics. This means attending to their employees, customers and surrounding community on a respectful platform. To name a few, here are some of the six qualifications for the Torch Award as follows:
Leadership commitment to ethics
Leaders must demonstrate these practices in their personal lives, dealing with employees and within their workmanship.
Leaders must create a culture of work with high ethic practices and character.
Organizational community commitment
The business leadership should blend over into the community it serves. Leaders need to be active and engaging within their industry and reaching out to the community.
Aloha Construction has had an impressive involvement with its fellow community for years. They have developed a partnership with Learning Express in an effort to launch a shopping spree for toys going to disadvantaged families. The organization created a non-profit foundation named after founder and CEO David Farbaky. In their mission to always help, Alhoa Construction’s charity contacted Omni Youth Service to assist them in finding specific families that needed help the most.
It didn’t take long for them to find a single parent raising four young girls who won a shot at the toy shopping spree. The goal was for her kids to snatch as many toys within 60 seconds. In the end, the family acquired nearly $7,000 worth of toys. This one of the way Aloha Construction continues to give back.
