The Uncommon Friends Foundation Business Ethics Award recognizes organizations that exemplify standards of high ethical behavior in how they conduct their daily operations and during times of crises. These organizations demonstrate a commitment to business ethics at all levels of the organization (from line employees to middle and upper management); a commitment to business ethics in their dealings with customers, vendors, shareholders, regulators, lenders and the community; a commitment to business ethics in their marketing, communications and sales practices; and finally, these organizations have a reputation within their industry and their communities for a commitment to business ethics.
In 2006, Uncommon Friends Foundation gave its first Uncommon Friends Business Ethics Award to recognize HomeBanc Mortgage Corporation as being an organization that exemplifies standards of high ethical behavior in how they conduct their daily operations and during times of crises. The company taking home this coveted award must demonstrate its commitment to ethical dealing with its employees, customers, vendors, shareholders, regulators, lenders, and the community. The company must also show a commitment to business ethics in its marketing, communications and sales practices and must hold a reputation within its industry and community for its commitment to business ethics.
