Judging conducted by a panel of ethics experts from business and academia
Fairport, N.Y. ‐ ConServe, a leading provider of accounts receivable management and collection services specializing in customized solutions for colleges and universities, state guaranty agencies, and the U.S. Department of Education, today announced their selection as a winner of the 2009 Rochester Business Ethics Award.
The award, presented at a business luncheon gathering on September 22nd at the Rochester Riverside Convention Center, recognizes ConServe as a significant leader in the local Rochester community for their commitment to ethical business practices demonstrated in ConServe's everyday operations, management philosophies, and responses to crises or challenges.
The award is presented by the Rochester Area Business Ethics Foundation. The award is modeled on the national American Business Ethics Award, which was founded in 1994 by the National Society of Financial Service Professionals. Nominated companies are evaluated by an independent panel of judges composed of individuals with an expertise in business ethics and who are drawn from the business, academic, public service, media, and consulting communities.
The judges evaluate the companies on documented evidence of the integrity of their corporate "code of ethics," as well as a clear demonstration of the company's commitment to ethical business practices through management and employee behavior. The judging criteria are stringent, and the result is an award that is coveted by area businesses.
Accepting the award, Mark Davitt, President and CEO of ConServe said, "It is an honor for all our team members to be recognized with this award. Our staff demonstrates daily their commitment to the very high standards we place on integrity, ethics, and service. To be publicly recognized by our community with this award is another positive affirmation that we are doing the right things, at the right time, in the right way."
