ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — The Samaritan Counseling Center’s New Mexico Ethics in Business Awards are now accepting nominations.
The awards are an annual recognition of for-profit businesses, not-for-profit organizations and individuals whose work in New Mexico demonstrates the highest ethical conduct and social responsibility, the center said in a news release.
Nominations for the 2014 event will be accepted until Aug. 16 at 5 p.m.
A maximum of 30 nominees will be forwarded to UNM Anderson School after analysis by a volunteer screening committee. Then, business ethics students, led by professor Sarah D. Smith, will research each nominee during the fall semester. A selection committee, a group of New Mexico business leaders, will meet to choose the recipients. A nomination form and criteria for selection may be obtained by checking the website at www.EthicsInBusinessNM.com or by calling the Samaritan Counseling Center at 505-842-5300.
The Samaritan Counseling Center’s New Mexico Ethics in Business Awards program began in 1999.
By recognizing New Mexico companies, organizations and individuals who give leadership in ethical business practice, the center said it continues to support a more ethical community while also raising funds for the Center’s Good Samaritan Fund which provides financially assisted counseling services to the community.
