Since 1996, the Better Business Bureau has been presenting its International Torch Award for Ethics to organizations that demonstrate a consistent commitment to being socially responsible and operating with a high degree of ethics towards their employees, customers and community. To become eligible, a business must operate within North America. They also must offer services and goods in the wholesale and retail markets.

Company’s that win the award meet certain criteria that include items such as their leaders showing that ethics are a top priority. This includes ethical practices in how they deal with their employees and customers. Commitment to community is one of the trademark qualities that an organization must demonstrate in order to become eligible for a Torch Award. The award is widely considered one of the greatest honors that a business can have bestowed on it.
Aloha Construction was founded in 2008 and serves the areas of southern Wisconsin and Illinois. The firm is family owned and operates within the sphere of general contractors. Aloha has developed a steadfast reputation for putting its customers first. The company’s employees are also treated in a grateful and respectful manner by company leadership. Employees at Aloha Construction often take up positions that are meant to be for the entirety of their working life.
This commitment to providing for the employment sustainability of its employees has gained the company much praise. Executives at Aloha Construction were thrilled when it was announced that the company would be a 2017 recipient of the Torch Award. BBB CEO Steve Bernas expressed his admiration for companies like Aloha Construction that put ethical business practices at the top of the list in regard to running their operations.
Aloha winning the Torch Award was largely due to the firm’s commitment to charitable activities outside of the company’s normal operations. The company’s commitment to philanthropic pursuits focused toward helping children was a huge factor working in Aloha Construction’s favor in receiving the award from the judges. Aloha Construction was a major player behind a toy drive that was launched for children who come from backgrounds of economic hardship.
