Kevin Flemming, President of Integrity Personnel and chair of the award committee was the master of ceremonies for the event and congratulated all three winners: “This year’s winners and finalists demonstrate the highest levels of ethical standards within their industries and provide models for businesses of any size to follow. We are excited to share their stories and share their example that ethical practices and business success are not mutually exclusive.”
The award program featured multi-media presentations of six finalists, including Boyle Construction, James Funeral Home, and MKSD Architects. Flemming explained that each of the finalist demonstrated high standards and best practices in their businesses and had to meet stringent selection requirements.
The competition was first introduced in 2011 with the goal of honoring real companies that integrate ethical business practices into their day-to-day operations.
