Business of the Year
Of all the businesses in our region, there is ONE that stands out as driving value—for its customers, employees, community and beyond. That’s what the Business of the Year category is all about, celebrating excellence across the board. We all know companies that provide leadership in their niche category. But it’s the well-rounded organization that has delivered on a promise of excellence that this category seeks to recognize.
- Commitment to demonstrating excellence in products or services
- Defining what it means to go beyond the expected.
- Generating exceptional measures of value to the community and its team members.
- Commitment to enhancing the image of Sarnia Lambton
It takes more than economic vitality to make our community a strong place to live and work. An organization also has the obligation to act for the benefit of society and the economy. This award recognizes the value that such an enterprise generates. Our recognition of excellence and innovation among those organizations that deliver on a promise of generating social responsibility is part of what makes us all stronger.
- to act for the benefit of society/community
- maintain a balance between the economy and ecosystems
- take a stance on important social issues
