Deadline for Business Ethics Award Nominations is September 1

The deadline for the 2016 Uncommon Friends Foundation’s annual Business Ethics Award nominations is fast approaching. Applications are due by Thursday, September 1. While time is short, there’s still time to apply.

High quality companies from Lee, Collier, Charlotte, Hendry and Glades Counties are eligible to apply for the prestigious award. Applicants must be able to demonstrate a strong internal commitment to ethical leadership and decision making practices. If your company is one that takes the high road in contacts and dealings with employees, customers, vendors, and the public, you might want to consider applying for this year’s Business Ethics Award.

Interested candidates are asked to complete the online application at https://uncommonfriends.org/business-ethics.

The Business Ethics Award finalists will be announced in advance and the winner will be revealed at the upcoming 2016 Uncommon Evening on Thursday, November 3 at the historic Burroughs Home and Gardens in downtown Fort Myers.
