The Torch Awards honor businesses that, along with excellent service, have shown superior commitment to building an ethical culture as evidenced by their relationships with customers and other stakeholders. Businesses entering the award competition respond to five integrity-related questions, followed by a two-phase judging process that includes testing the entries against surveys of random customers.
An expert panel drawn from the academic, public service and business sectors judges entries from throughout the BBB’s five-county service area.
