The Combined Rotary Clubs of Pensacola (CROP), in partnership with UWF College of Business, is accepting nominations for the 2016 Combined Rotary of Pensacola Ethics in Business Award.
"This will be the 14th year that the Rotary Clubs of Pensacola and the UWF College of Business have recognized Pensacola business leaders who adhere to high ethical standards in their business and professional practices,” said Dr. Ed Ranelli, professor and dean emeritus of the UWF College of Business.
Criteria for the award are based on adherence to the high ethical standards of honesty, integrity and consistency in dealing with employees, contractors and customers, while positively enhancing the economic well-being of their organization’s stakeholders and providing jobs, opportunities and profits.
Additional criteria are based on participation in activities that are beneficial to the community beyond the provision of economic benefits and service as a leader or innovator in the firm’s business sector.
This award is given annually each Spring to one individual from the small business sector (less than 50 employees) and one individual from the large business sector (greater than 50 employees) to recognize those who exemplify the concept of "service above self" and who work to build a positive sense of worth within both the business community and the broader community as a whole.
Last year’s award winners were Heidi Blair and Michael Murdoch. Michael Murdoch will speak at the award’s ceremony on the importance of business ethics to business and professional success.
The 2016 Combined Rotary Luncheon is schedule for May 2, 2016 from 12 to 1 p.m. at New World Landing.
Nominations must be received by April 1, 2016 and should include a description of the nominee’s ethical activities and address the criteria outlined on the nomination form. Download a nomination form or pick one up at any Pensacola area Rotary Club.
The award is sponsored by the Combined Rotary of Pensacola and the University of West Florida College of Business. For more information, please visit uwf.edu/cob/ethics-in-business-award.
