Aloha Construction recently announced that they are the proud recipient of the Better Business Bureau’s Torch Award for Ethics. Only a limited number of companies receive this award each year so the team at Aloha Construction, located in Lake Zurich, Illinois. was pretty happy to earn it. They had to show a team of judges that they had demonstrated extraordinary committed to maintaining ethical practices for all of the prior year. This company helps homeowners who need their home’s roofs, gutters, and/or siding repaired or replaced.
There are six standards for a company like Aloha Construction to show in order to earn the Torch Award for Ethics. First, the leaders of the company need to show they are committed to ethics, and proactively seek out feedback. They also need to communicate their ethical conduct codes to all employees. The leaders of the company need to show strong convictions and demonstrate that management is highly competent in their jobs. They need to have clear ethical human resource practices they are beholden to and the company needs to show they are committed to their community, including acting philanthropically.
One example of Aloha Construction’s commitment to making people’s lives better occurred when they partnered with Learning Express. They wanted to help a local low-income family during the holidays. An organization called Omni Youth Services matched them with a family made up of a single mom and four daughters. They all have one minute to grab as many toys as they could at a local toy store. They were able to grab about $7,000 worth of goods during this time which made the girls and the mom very happy.
Another organization Aloha Construction has partnered with is Camp One Step By Children’s Oncology Services, Inc. Each time the Illinois State University’s basketball team has an assist it resulted in a $5 donation by the team at Aloha Construction. Additionally, they sponsor a number of youth sports teams and leagues such as the Central Illinois Flying Aces and Roselle Medinah which has both softball and baseball leagues. They also support their local Boys and Girls Club.
