All finalists complete an evaluation where they demonstrate their commitment to ethics and trust in four categories: Character, Culture, Customers, and Community. They are then asked to illustrate the character of their organization’s leadership, how an authentic culture is being fostered, how the company prioritizes its relationship with customers, and the impact the organization is making in their community.

Shelley Bradley, Director of Signature Events for BBB Serving the Pacific Southwest, says, “Honesty builds trust, which is a vital aspect in the success of a business. This is the 5th year that BBB has been recognizing outstanding companies in Orange County for their solid commitment to doing things the right way. To highlight these exceptional companies, the BBB hosted the inaugural Torch Award for Ethics celebration in Newport Beach, dedicated to the area’s top ethical businesses.”
