A group of employers have been honored for their ethics by a nonprofit.

The Better Business Bureau Serving Western Michigan awarded the 2019 Torch Award for Ethics in four categories. 

Two award winners are businesses, and two winners are nonprofits.

“This year’s winners demonstrate that ethical leadership every day in our community and with the people they serve,” said Phil Catlett, president, Better Business Bureau Serving Western Michigan.

Businesses and nonprofits are nominated by their peers, customers and employees and are evaluated by a panel of judges made up of business and nonprofit leaders from the community.
