The BBB of Greater Maryland’s Torch Awards for Ethics annually honors those businesses that meet the highest trust and ethics standards when it comes to their customers, employees and local communities.

The awards manifest the BBB’s mission of advancing trust in the marketplace. Winners and finalists were selected by a panel of judges, comprised of local business leaders, BBB board members, and previous award honorees.

As part of the 2022 competitive awards process, this year’s winners, including impactHR, were judged on a range of criteria including an organization’s commitment to: building and maintaining ethical business practices; working toward a culture of trust through clarity of purpose, empowering employees and opportunities for growth; and going above and beyond to maintain transparency with customers.

“On behalf of all of us on the impactHR team, we’re very grateful and honored to receive a BBB of Greater Maryland 2022 Torch Award for Ethics,” said Kelly Mitchell, Founder and Principal of impactHR. “I’m beyond proud of everyone on our team for upholding the highest standards of customer service and care – and certainly grateful for the trust our valued customers have in us every day. We’ll always adhere to the BBB’s core mission of fostering an ethical marketplace where companies, organizations and their customers trust each other.”

The 2022 Torch Award honorees were celebrated late last month at this year’s BBB of Greater Maryland Signature Event, BBBopoly, held at the Baltimore Museum of Industry. The BBB of Greater MD is a non-profit organization governed by a voluntary Board of Directors comprised of representatives from Accredited Businesses in good standing with BBB.
