Now more than ever, consumers consider a company's reputation when shopping for goods and services. But at a time when corporations are intensely scrutinized by journalists and bloggers, a strong reputation is both more difficult to achieve and more complicated to maintain.
Four important roles for character in academic life...
As a program of BBB’s Center for Character Ethics, the Laws of Life Essay Contest invites high school students to share the “laws” that influence their thoughts and actions, and help them make daily decisions.
After much anticipation, Better Business Bureau Serving Central, Northern and Western Arizona (BBB) reveals the 2013 BBB Business Ethics Awards winners during its 12th annual dinner.
BBB Center for Character Ethics' future workforce programming has been designed to increase marketplace trust by providing practical character ethics and ethical habits training for educative serving our future workforce.
Middle and high school students write about what “laws” they believe are important to live by - principles such as courage, perseverance, forgiveness, and honesty. The best student essays from local Laws of Life Essay Contests in a BBB service area compete and are recognized and rewarded at a regional awards ceremony.
“In Pursuit of Ethics” generates in-depth discussion of ethical issues with group audiences. It offers reenactment of real-life situations where the audience sets the direction of the program by making decisions for the characters. With five different scenarios, “In Pursuit of Ethics” addresses ethical dilemmas that anyone might encounter. It is not another boring speech - it is interactive! All options have consequences…and they aren’t always predictable!
BBB's Ethics Awards provide a great opportunity for students to experience firsthand the power of ethical business practices in the marketplace. With over 300 business professionals in attendance, hosted students can network and learn about companies that support BBB’s vision of building a marketplace where buyers and sellers can trust each other.
Companies hosting a student may also offer a tour of their facilities, sharing more in-depth the role ethics plays in their day-to-day operations. The BBB Business Ethics Awards will take place at:
