As a past recipient of the Buffalo Niagara Business Ethics Award, we wanted to take a moment to talk to you about how being a part of this community of Buffalo-based companies has been such a positive influence on our organization.
Since 2007, the Buffalo Chapter of the Society of Financial Service Professionals has been holding the BNBEA. In 2010, Colvin Cleaners won the Crystal Award from the BNBEA and continues to support all nominees and winners in creating better business in the Buffalo & Niagara communities.
Having been the recipient of the BNBEA in the small business category has meant a lot to our company. Going through the application process alone was really worthwhile in itself. It gave us an opportunity to really analyze our company and behaviors. We realized we were doing a lot of great things and we were also able to identify areas we could improve. We encourage companies to strongly consider applying for this prestigious award. Win or lose, your company and you will grow.
Learn more about the businesses who have received the BNBEA (see below) and what they do in our area. And, don't forget, nominations for the awards in 2017 are due this year on October 28th, 2016. You can submit your nomination here. You can nominate a company you own, one you work for, or any other company you feel deserves the award.
