BBB calls for entries for ethical businesses awards
CONCORD - The Better Business Bureau of New Hampshire is conducting its 13th annual awards competition to celebrate ethical business practices.
"The purpose of this award is to recognize annually those businesses in our state committed to maintaining exceptionally high standards of ethical behavior in buyer and seller relationships," said Robert Shomphe, president/CEO of the New Hampshire BBB, in a release.
Nominations and applications for the Better Business Bureau Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics competition will be accepted through April 10. Three categories of companies will be recognized: large (151 employees and more), medium (51-150 employees) and small (1-50 employees).
The awards are open to all for-profit New Hampshire businesses that serve retail and wholesale markets. Companies do not need to have a formal ethics program or be a BBB-accredited business to enter.
Applicants must be located in the state of New Hampshire. Nonprofit organizations or businesses whose primary markets are local, state or federal governments are not eligible.
Individuals may nominate the company he or she works for, owns, or is affiliated with, or any company meeting the parameters set forth in the application form.
Award entry forms may be found and downloaded at the BBB's website located at www.concord.bbb.org.
Finalists will be recognized and the winners will be announced at the Torch Awards Presentation Banquet on May 22 at the Radisson Hotel Ballroom, Manchester. Corporate table registrations are available on the BBB website.
