Miller’s Minuteman Press Receives BBB’s Torch Award for Marketplace Excellence
One thing that is extremely important in business, cannot be bought, and is difficult if not impossible to get back once lost is trust.
Trust is the belief that someone or something is reliable, good, honest and/or effective. Trust isn’t built overnight; one earns trust over time.
While trust is difficult to measure, there is one local organization that gathers information on hundreds of thousands of businesses in an effort to help the public make educated choices when it comes to which company to entrust with their business.
The Better Business Bureau of Greater Maryland’s mission is to promote and foster the highest ethical relationship between the public and businesses through consumer and business education, service excellence, and voluntary self-regulation.
The BBB’s annual Torch Awards pay tribute to businesses that demonstrate high standards of honesty and integrity toward customers, employees, shareholders and their communities.
Miller’s Minuteman Press was inducted into the BBB’s Hall of Fame and was recognized at the 2015 Pillars of Trust event, winning the coveted Torch Award over a record number of worthy competitors.
Businesses are evaluated on criteria that include an ability to identify high ethical standards, long-standing reputation, truthfulness and accuracy in sales, promotional materials and advertisements, as well as effective management practices and policies that promote an ethical workplace.
