Cushing Receives the 2018 BBB Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics
CHICAGO, Ill. — December 19, 2018 — Cushing has been an accredited Better Business Bureau (BBB) member for a dozen years and for the 2018 year, has been awarded the BBB Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics.
The Torch Award is presented to businesses that not only believe in the high ethical standards of BB but consistently acts on them and integrates them into daily business practices.
The application was daunting, the company says, but Cushing's marketing team: Jon Davis and Catie Duffy took it on.
As Cushing approaches 90 years in business, the organizational philosophy continues to focus on these tenets, and this became a focus of the application:
- Celebrate employees
- Improve the customer experience
- Build fair and balanced business relationships with clients and vendors
In September, Cushing made the final round of potential winners. "We felt the application was strong – made no assumptions, and we’re happy to be nominated," says Joe Cushing.
During the November luncheon, the BBB handed out the TORCH. In the category of 11-100 employees, the list was smaller than other categories but Cushing won.
"Completely unprepared, I was happy to recite that any firm in the room was worthy of this, but, using the measure of integrity in the workplace as the barometer, I was delighted to accept on behalf of my sister, father, grandfather, and all the great co-workers we have here," says Cushing. "Congrats to everyone on the Cushing team, we are completely humbled and happy to be listed among many great Chicagoland firms as a Torch award winner."
