Kurt J. Lesker Company was the recipient of the Pittsburgh Business Ethics Award, presented on February 22 at the Omni William Penn Hotel in Pittsburgh. Kristin Lesker Eisel, global human resource manager, stated at the ceremony, “There are a lot of different awards we get nominated for, but this one, showing that we have strong ethics means a lot, not only for the company, but for the family.”
Each year the Pittsburgh chapter of Financial Service Professionals has chosen companies that best demonstrate a commitment to ethical practices from nominees in the small, medium and large company categories. Judging is based on factors such as how well a company demonstrates its commitment to ethical practices to both employees and customers, and how those standards are applied in everyday business dealings. Another consideration toward the overall score is whether or not the company offers high quality products and/or services.
For 2017 the Lesker Company was selected as the winner in the medium-sized company category, while Michael Baker International, received the large company award, and Synergy Comp of Sharon, PA took the small organization honors.
