We are thrilled to announce Imprimis Group (Imprimis Staffing, Freeman+Leonard and BravoTECH) has been chosen to be honored by the North Texas business community at the 16h Annual Greater Dallas Business Ethics Award (GDBEA) program. The program will be held on Tuesday, May 17 at 11:30 a.m. at the Westin Galleria Hotel, and will be presented by Akin Gump, the Better Business Bureau serving Dallas and Northeast Texas, and D CEO Magazine. The event is open to the public and tickets are available at gdbea.org.
The Greater Dallas Business Ethics Award recognized Imprimis Group for its commitment to ethical business practices and demonstration of these practices in daily operations, management philosophies, and responses to business challenges.
30 companies were nominated this year and four companies were selected to receive the award. The other honorees are Lone Star Analysis, Staffelbach, and UR Holdings.
The honorees were selected after a comprehensive evaluation process: A panel of judges representing academia, business and previous award winners reviewed the 30 nominees’ ethics policies, programming, communications, and review practices. The Posey Leadership Institute at Austin College sent a team of students to conduct site visits and interviews with the entrants. Each entrant was then screened for Better Business Bureau reviews and qualifying ratings of B+ or above. Finally, the panel determined the four honorees who demonstrated the highest standards of ethics in action.
“These companies are great examples of ethics at work,” said Michael Webb, chairman of the award program. “They exemplify businesses operating under ethical principles and doing the right thing for their company and related stakeholders. Their work reinforces the positive, ethical values of our local business community.”
The 2016 award program will feature a keynote address by Richard Bowen, identified by the Wall Street Journal and 60 Minutes as the Citigroup whistleblower who repeatedly warned of the impending subprime mortgage crisis in 2007.
