Society of Financial Services Professionals honors company
Sauereisen, a manufacturer of specialty cements and corrosion-resistant materials for construction, was awarded a 2011 Pittsburgh Business Ethics Award by the Society of Financial Services Professionals, the David Berg Center for Ethics and Leadership at the University of Pittsburgh and the Pittsburgh Rotary. Sauereisen won in the small business category and was presented the award at the groups’ 11th annual luncheon.
“Sauereisen’s company culture is based on a commitment to ethical principles and practices,” said Eric Sauereisen, president of Sauereisen. “We strive to promote the highest standards of behavior and quality in our dealings. Our philosophy is one of service to diverse stakeholders, including employees, customers, vendors, the community and the environment. We are honored and pleased to be recognized for this continued commitment.”
The award is given to honor U.S. companies that demonstrate a firm commitment to ethical practices in their everyday operations, policies and in response to crises and challenges. Companies nominated were evaluated on criteria including: demonstration of executive commitment to business ethics, clear communication of ethical standards to employees, consistently high-quality products and services, and a commitment to community and charitable involvement. Awards were given in three separate categories based on company size and number of employees.
Sauereisen and the other two winning Pittsburgh companies will go on to compete at the national level.
