Pet Sitters International Wins a 2016 Torch Award for Ethics
Pet Sitters International has been named a recipient of a 2016 Torch Award for Ethics, presented by the Better Business Bureau of Northwest North Carolina.
Pet Sitters International was one of four companies named Torch Award winners during an awards reception and dinner on Nov. 10. Companies in the 2016 Torch Award competition were judged in one of four categories based on the number of employees.
“Ethical business practices are the cornerstone of Pet Sitters International’s business model—both for our staff and our professional pet-sitting members,” said Pet Sitters International president Patti J. Moran. “To be recognized as having the highest standard of ethics is a special honor because it is a characteristic that is so integral to what we do every day.”
According to the Better Business Bureau of Northwest North Carolina, the annual Torch Awards for Ethics recognize companies “whose leadership demonstrates a high level of personal character, ensures that the organization’s practices meet the highest standards of ethics and consequently generates trust among their employees, customers and communities.”
“Pet Sitters International was selected to be a 2016 Torch Award winner by our independent panel of judges due to their extensive written code of conduct and ethics, as well as internal events held throughout the year to increase employee understanding, appreciation and application of these principles,” said Claire Barham, communications specialist for the Better Business Bureau of Northwest North Carolina. “This consistent focus on trust and integrity is what makes Pet Sitters International deserving of a Better Business Bureau Torch Award for Ethics.”
