An independent panel of judges drawn from business, academia, public service and the ethics community evaluates the entries based upon the CEO’s and senior officers’ commitments to business ethics via an established corporate code of ethics that communicates the company’s requirements for honesty, integrity and compliance with the law. A company is also evaluated on how ethics are a living part of the company’s philosophy, culture and everyday business operations that ensures the fair and consistent treatment of all parties involved, among other criteria.
Susan Koch, an NCBEA judge, states, “In an industry where companies disappear as quickly as they pop‐up. Case stands strong at more than 50 years and counting. They are working to raise the level of ethical standards through a Remodeling Industry Award program they created as well as through active participation in a national associations’ government affairs committee.” During the NCBEA gala in October, Koch also mentioned Case’s five-year warranty on its work as well as Case’s employees who have been with the company 10 to 30 years. “Those same employees proudly serve the community through a company‐wide initiative called Case Cares where they make a difference in the lives of others through their collective accomplishments,” Koch says. “Our visit to Case was filled with people telling me it’s the best company they’ve ever worked for.”
“Winning the National Capital Business Ethics Award is a true honor and testament to Case’s commitment to doing the right thing,” says Bruce Case, president and CEO of Case Design/Remodeling, Inc. “Lots of businesses talk about ‘what’ they do and ‘how’ they do it. We dig deeper. Since Fred Case began the home remodeling business in 1961, he has built on a foundation of beliefs that drive our daily decisions and that target our focus. They are what make Case special. And they are captured in three simple words – Value, Design, Respect – beliefs that are simple, but not easy. No one is as committed to them as Case is and no one brings the breadth to execute them as we do.”
Case will now be entered in the American Business Ethics Awards, the Society of Financial Service Professionals nationwide program recognizing companies that exemplify the highest level of ethical behavior in everyday business practices.
