Aloha Construction has been announced as the winner of the Better Business Bureau 2017 Torch Award for marketplace ethics. The company which offers construction services both in Illinois and Chicago has been in operations for decades. It has been accredited for its excellent services and the spirit of giving back to the society. Aloha Construction was shortlisted for the award together with several other companies but managed to bit them and scooped the prestigious award.
The Better Business Award is usually given to companies that demonstrate high standards of ethical practice in their businesses throughout the year. Before qualifying for nominations, companies are always expected to meet certain standards such as their commitment to ethical practices, commitment of its leaders to communicating ethical practices to employees, commitment to corporate social responsibility among others. Upon shortlisting, the companies are taken through a rigorous careening process to determine their commitment and implementation of the terms set by the BBB.
Aloha Construction was chosen by a panel of 15 judges who all agreed that the company had done a lot especially in the area of community service. The company has been consistent in giving back to the community. One of its most recent events was a shopping spree organized for children from needy families. The company had partnered with another charity organization, Lerner Express to facilitate the event.
Putting customers first
Besides its commitment to corporate social responsibility, Aloha Construction always puts the needs of its customers first. That is probably why they are considered one of the best construction companies in Illinois and Chicago. The Better Business Bureau was right to recognize their efforts and the award will definitely make them work even harder in the coming years.
Employee first policy
Aloha Construction values its employees as much as it values its customers. The company received the Torch award not only for their commitment to customers and the community but also because of their handling of employees. Dave Farbarky said that every employee of Aloha Construction is like family and that the award belonged to all of them. Aloha is one of the few companies that remunerate its employees well.
