Most people know that companies backed by the Better Business Bureau are reliable, but there are some companies who deserve recognition above and beyond the BBB’s basic approval rating. To fully recognize those businesses that exhibit an outstanding sense of ethical practice, the BBB presents their Torch Award. In 2017 a locally-based Illnois company known as Aloha Construction won this prestigious award. Based in Lake Zurich, Illinois, this family owned company has been servicing the counties in Illinois and Southern Wisconsin since 2008.
The fact that Aloha Construction received the BBB’s Torch Award is no small feat since this agency uses an independent panel of judges who assess companies on six different aspects of service and performance. As a construction company that specializes in repairing damage caused by hail, high winds and storms, the team at Aloha offers their customers payment plans designed to fit their budgets. This is in keeping with the criteria of maintaining organizational procedures that unifies the company’s mission and provides clarity of purpose. This is just one of the aspects Aloha Construction met when reviewed for the BBB’s Torch Award.
The first two key aspects considered by the BBB for this award pertain to ethical practices as they relate to a company’s personnel. Leaders are expected to uphold high levels of ethical practices in both their business and personal lives as examples for their employees. Founded by Dave Farbaky, Aloha Construction has always employed contractors who are insured and licensed within their chosen fields. They also have their siding contractors go through a specialized training program before welcoming them as part of their team and business family.
The prestigious Torch Award is also given to a company based on their efforts to give back to their community. In order to better facilitate the needs of the communities they serve, Aloha Construction has a branch known as the Dave Farbaky Foundation, through which they partner with area programs to help provide hope to needy families. Through this foundation, they were able to bring joy to a single mother and her daughters by giving them the chance to go on a shopping spree for toys.
