Good Business Egg Awards has 79 companies on long list

This year’s Good Business Egg Awards has 79 companies on long list.

Communities have their say which business organisations are the best in practising corporate social responsibility.

The hard task of shortening the long list of 79 for the Good Business Egg Awards of 2014 is almost complete.

The Stanley East Company has collected data and evidence over the past 12 months for Business and Community Shares (BACS) organisers of the annual award to be used to award businesses by community leaders.

Through independent surveys and research on business websites, close interest in press, social media and listening to community organisations a clear picture emerged of companies who had a notable understanding of real commitment to social issues rather than just marketing ploys. “BACS has a policy of zero bragging” said Julie Donvin-Irons BACS Director “and it won’t wash if a business wants to simply brand a social issue for their own benefit, in fact they get penalised through the scoring system if that is believed.

“In collecting the data we have been led by community, it is they who decide the good business eggs for the awards, and each category has had its own specialist community panel to make final comments and points.”

A number of good business eggs are announced throughout the year through outstanding results from planned surveys. But there are only three that will hold aloft a Good Business Egg Award for 2014.

The 79 business organisations (including government departments) in NZ under scrutiny for a Good Business Egg Award 2014.
