Strategic communications firm, 10 to 1 Public Relations, is proud to announce it has been named a finalist for the 2020 BBB Torch Awards for Ethics. The annual program from the Better Business Bureau Serving the Pacific Southwest (BBB) raises awareness in marketplace ethics and honors businesses that operate with integrity.

“The Better Business Bureau has a well-earned a reputation of trust among the public that can’t be ignored, and for the BBB to recognize our team as a finalist for this year’s Torch Awards for Ethics is extremely humbling and gratifying,” said Josh Weiss, President of 10 to 1 Public Relations. “As an industry, public relations is often portrayed as spinning the truth for short-term gain. Hopefully, this honor from the BBB breaks some of those negative perceptions and highlights the transparency and honesty that the 10 to 1 team embodies every day with clients and the members of the media.” 

The BBB Torch Awards for Ethics were established to recognize outstanding businesses that maintain a solid commitment to ethics and trust in the marketplace. 10 to 1 Public Relations was selected by an independent panel of volunteer community leaders based on the company’s commitment to ethics in leadership, communication, team management, and community service, among others.

“Ethics play a vital role in the success of a business, especially during a pandemic. For 18 years, BBB has been recognizing companies for their solid commitment to doing things right in their companies and industries,” said Shelley Bradley, Director of Signature Events for BBB Serving the Pacific Southwest. “This year’s finalists represent BBB’s community of trustworthy businesses that operate with integrity at the forefront.”

Weiss congratulates all the finalists in this year’s awards, especially the small businesses category which includes Commercial Property Connect and Nelson Estate Jewelers. The BBB shared videos of all three finalists on BBB’s social media channels to kick off a visual digital campaign celebrating finalists and judges throughout the month of October.

A complete list of finalists has been posted to the BBB’s website, where winners will be announced on October 28. This year’s Torch Awards for Ethics is sponsored by Desert Financial Credit Union.

This is the second honor presented to 10 to 1 Public Relations during the month of September, as the company was also named the 2020 PR Agency of the Year from the Phoenix Chapter of the Public Relations Society of America.
