The Ethics in Business & Community platform is an annual honor for individuals and community organizations who have demonstrated exemplary ethical practices. The purpose of the EiB&C Awards is to provide a forum for acknowledging these individuals and organizations. We wish to facilitate a greater community dialogue and awareness about ethics in our community. Ethics in Business was started by the Samaritan Counseling Center in 1991 and was adopted by RecognizeGood: THE Foundation on the event’s 10th anniversary.
Established in 2002 by the Austin Samaritan Counseling Center, the Central Texas Ethics in Business awards program annually honors organizations and individuals who have demonstrated exemplary ethical practices. The purpose of the EIB Award is to provide a forum for acknowledging organizations and individuals that are exemplars of ethical practice and to encourage a dialogue about business ethics in our community. By recognizing such behavior, we all learn that doing the right thing is good business!
In 2007 the TyRex Group was chosen as the Ethics in Business award recipient. This award created the cornerstone for the partnership between TyRex and the Samaritan Counseling Center, and this partnership ultimately lead to the launch of RecognizeGood.
We are proud to be a part of the Ethics in Business & Community Awards, and what an honor it is to recognize the businesses in our community that really are making a good impact! Our next EiB&C Awards will be held on May 2nd, 2013. You can check the Event Calendar on our website for more information closer to the time of the event – we would love to see you there!
