American Frame Wins BBB Torch Award
American Frame is proud to be awarded the 2019 Better Business Bureau Torch Award for Ethics.
The award is presented to companies in Northeast and West Central Ohio and Southeastern Michigan who display an outstanding level of ethics and integrity in all business dealings.
American Frame won the award in the large business category, for companies with more than 50 employees.
This is an amazing affirmation of our ethics-first culture. Our number one core value is ‘Trust’ and from that everything else flows.
Laura Jajko, President, accepted the award at the May 9, 2019 luncheon at the Hilton Garden Inn, Perrysburg. Joining her were Dana Dunbar, CEO, Chris Dunbar, Sr. Purchasing Manager and Jennifer Irelan, Sr. Human Resources Manager.
“I am so honored to accept this incredible award on behalf of the entire team at American Frame,” Jajko said. “This is an amazing affirmation of our ethics-first culture. Our number one core value is ‘Trust’ and from that everything else flows. We truly believe that by doing good, ethical business, we elevate our employees, our customers, our community and our industry.”
Winning companies must demonstrate their commitment to ethics in six categories: Leadership Commitment to Ethics, Communications of Ethical Practices, Organizational Commitment to Ethical Practice, Organizational Commitment to Performance Management Practices, Organizational Commitment to Ethical Human Resource Practices, and Organizational Commitment to the Community.
Jajko said she’s especially thrilled to be recognized by the BBB as it celebrates its 100th anniversary.
“This is the first year we were nominated and participated,” she said. “We believe that being recognized for superior business ethics is the absolute highest honor a company can receive.”
