BBB Torch Awards for Ethics
BBB’s Torch Awards spotlight companies in Middle Tennessee and Southern Kentucky that represent praiseworthy ethical business practices throughout our marketplace.
Host Jeremy C. Park talks with Madeline McNeil, Market Programs Coordinator for the Better Business Bureau of Middle Tennessee and Southern Kentucky, who highlights the BBB’s mission and efforts to foster an ethical marketplace where buyers and sellers trust each other. The BBB does this by setting standards for marketplace trust, encouraging and supporting best practices by engaging with and educating consumers and businesses, celebrating marketplace role models, calling out and addressing substandard marketplace behavior, and creating a community of trustworthy businesses and charities. During the interview, Madeline highlights their Integrity Foundation and their BBB Torch Awards for Ethics, which was established in 1998 as a way to celebrate local businesses dedicated to building trust through ethical practices with their staff, the community, their approach to marketing, and within their industry. The deadline for casting nominations is April 30, 2022, and the deadline for completed applications is June 30, 2022 by 11:59 pm CST.
