Why is promoting ethics important to AFCS?

Because we believe:

  • Recognizing healthy work environments is one of the best things we can do to promote emotional well-being and mental health
  • Working in unhealthy work environments negatively impacts individuals and their relationships-as spouses, parents, co-workers and community members.

There is a connection between greater well-being, stronger families, ethical business environments and healthy communities. The Ethics in Business Awards highlights positive models of ethical behavior – those who champion the universal ethical principles.

AFCS hosts the Ethics in Business Awards for three reasons:

  • To foster a climate of ethics and integrity in northeast Wisconsin
  • To heighten awareness of AFCS within the business community
  • To raise funds for AFCS's healing work
