Augusta, GA -
Goodwill Industries of Middle Georgia and the CSRA completed a "sweep" of its 35-county service area September 19th when it received its second 2013 Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics from the Better Business Bureau.
The Better Business Bureau serving the CSRA, Inc., awarded Goodwill the prestigious award for large-sized businesses during its annual awards luncheon at West Lake Country Club. Earlier this year, Goodwill received the Torch Award presented by the Better Business Bureau in Macon.
The Torch Award recognizes companies who are nominated "for their outstanding high ethical standards of behavior toward customers, suppliers, employees and the communities in which they live and do business," according to the award announcement from the Better Business Bureau.
"My team and I take great pride in instilling the highest standards in customer service and integrity throughout the organization – from our volunteer board leaders to Goodwill's staff and clients," said James K. Stiff, President and CEO of Goodwill. "We are committed to quality and continuous improvement in all aspects of Goodwill's business operations throughout our service delivery area."
Goodwill Board member Cab Stitt accepted the Torch Award trophy on behalf of Goodwill from Better Business Bureau President and CEO Kelvin Collins. Other recipients of the 2013 CSRA Torch Awards recognized September 19th were Advanced Services for Pest Control from mid-sized businesses, and Evans Animal Hospital for small businesses.
