The ETHIE Award recognizes businesses and organizations that strive to promote ethical principles in business. The crystal statuette presented to ETHIE Award recipients symbolizes the navigator’s and the architect’s compasses, the roots of ethics in the ancient world, strong ethical foundations, aspirations to high standards of business conduct, and the multifaceted nature of ethics in our daily lives.
Each September, the Rochester business community gathers at the annual ETHIE Award Ceremony, where finalists and recipients are celebrated and rewarded for successfully implementing ethical principles in business.
At the ceremony, company leaders celebrate with their team members and business partners, recognizing that each person has fulfilled an important role in their company’s success at promoting ethical principles in business. The ETHIE Award is the culmination of a rigorous process during which companies have thoroughly explored and detailed their ethical principles and policies in business.
