Center Valley, PA – The Forum for Ethics in the Workplace is accepting applications for the 2014 Societas Award for Responsible Corporate Conduct. The Forum, based at DeSales University in Center Valley, PA, has made the application available on its website.
The Forum presents the award to illustrate how real companies apply ethical business practices in the course of their daily operations. This is the third time the competition will take place. The two previous winners were Lafayette Ambassador Bank and the Jaindl Companies. Additionally, there have been four finalists recognized for their quality business practices and consistent approach to ethics: Atmos Inc., Altitude Marketing, Fitzpatrick Lentz & Bubba, and Prudential Patt White Real Estate.
The Societas Award competition is open to all for-profit companies headquartered in Eastern Pennsylvania. Applications will be reviewed by a panel of independent judges made up of senior business and academic leaders, and the finalists and winner will be honored at a luncheon program sponsored by the Forum on January 30, 2014.
To be eligible for the award, companies submit a detailed application package that addresses recognized elements of ethical business practices such as compliance with both the letter and spirit of the law, accountability at all levels of the organization, and corporate citizenship. The information asked for in the application is common to companies that have quality and compliance programs already in place.
The Forum for Ethics in the Workplace is a not-for-profit, wholly-owned subsidiary of DeSales University in Center Valley, PA. The Forum seeks to provide opportunities for people to come together for study, reflection, conversation, and action on ethical issues in the workplace.
The Forum hosts a quarterly breakfast series at DeSales that feature guest lecturers on topics of controversy or current interests that have real-world ethical implications.
