2016 Ethics in Business Awards
Date: November 10, 2016
Place: KI Convention Center
Time: 11:00 am registration; 11:30-1:10 pm program
Speaker – TBD
Join us for the 9th annual Ethics in Business Awards luncheon, as we celebrate companies, organizations and individuals who serve as role models for ethics in business.
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
