Nominees being accepted for Better Business Bureau awards

The Better Business Bureau of New Hampshire is conducting its 12th annual awards competition to recognize and encourage ethical business practices in the state.

The deadline for nominees to apply is April 6.

“The purpose of this award is to recognize annually those businesses in our state committed to maintaining exceptionally high standards of ethical behavior in buyer and seller relationships”, said Robert Shomphe, President/CEO of the New Hampshire BBB. “I encourage the many outstanding companies in New Hampshire, small and large, that work to uphold the trust and respect of their customers to submit an entry for this prestigious award”.

Businesses do not need to have a formal ethics program to compete.

Nominations and applications are available for the 2012 Better Business Bureau Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics competition. Three categories of companies will be recognized: one large (151 employees and more), one medium (51-150 employees), and a small (1-50 employees).

The Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics awards are open to all for-profit New Hampshire businesses that serve retail and wholesale markets. A company ­does not have to be a member of the Better Business Bureau to submit an entry.

Applicants must be located in the state of New Hampshire. Non-profit organizations or businesses whose primary markets are local, state or federal governments are not eligible.

Individuals may nominate the company he/she works for, owns, or is affiliated with, or any company meeting the awards parameters set forth in the application form.

Award entry forms are available online at www.bbb.org.

The three finalists in each category will be recognized and the winners announced at a banquet to be held Tuesday, May 8 at the Radisson Hotel Ballroom in Manchester.
