PlayCore Honored with Award for Company Ethics
BBB's Torch Award is designed to promote not only the importance of ethical business practices, but the willingness and efforts made by outstanding businesses to ensure that the marketplace remains fair and honorable for all consumers and fellow businesses. Companies were nominated for BBB's Torch Award and then asked to provide information that demonstrates their focus on the 4C's of Trust: Character, Culture, Customers, and Community. Award recipients are selected by an independent panel of judges each year. Said one of the judges about PlayCore, "At a high level the corporation has all the fundamental elements in place; policy, procedures, training, employee educations and opportunity. They incorporate integrity, high ethics, trust, character, manufacturing quality, and customer relationships with excellence. Their commitment to community support in each branch business location is present and very commendable."
