Rotary Club to present Tifton Rotary Ethics in Business Award

TIFTON — Ethics and business are at the core of Rotary International, so it is fitting that the Rotary Club of Tifton has established the Tifton Rotary Ethics in Business Award to recognize a local business that has demonstrated exceptional ethical behavior. The Tifton Rotary Club initiated the new award as part of its 75th anniversary celebration this year.

“This annual award represents the basic values of Rotary and is a way for our Rotary Club to publicly recognize those businesses that adhere to high ethical standards as they serve our community,” said Frank Sayles Jr., president of the Rotary Club of Tifton. “We have many fine businesses in Tift County that contribute to our area’s well-being and that help make Tifton the excellent community that it is today.”

Tifton Rotary Club board members selected the criteria for the award, which will go to a business physically located in Tifton or Tift County. The nominated business must have consistently demonstrated high ethical standards of honesty and integrity in dealing with employees, customers and contractors while enhancing the economic well-being of the company and providing local jobs, opportunity and profits.

In addition, the business must have participated in activities beneficial to the community beyond the provision of economic benefits of the business and must adhere to fair and truthful business practice reflected in the Rotary 4-Way Test: Is it the truth?; Is it fair to all concerned?; Will it build goodwill and better friendship?; and Will it be beneficial to all concerned?

Nomination applications may be obtained from Sayles or any Tifton Rotary Club member. Applications must be submitted and received by March 1 to be considered in this year’s competition.

Nominations may be made by anyone other than an owner or manager of, or family member of an owner or manager of, the nominated business. Nominations should be mailed to the Tifton Rotary Club, P.O. Box 1354, Tifton, Ga. 31793 (attn: Rotary Ethics in Business Award).

A thorough review process involving the Ethics in Business committee of the Tifton Rotary Club, as well as a committee of faculty and students from the Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College business school, will select the winner.

The winner will be announced and recognized with an engraved plaque at a meeting of the Tifton Rotary Club in late April or early May.
