Heartspring receives the 2015 BBB Integrity Award for the Kansas Plains

August 21, 2015 – Heartspring received the Better Business Bureau (BBB) Integrity Award at an award ceremony at the Hyatt Regency Wichita on Thursday, August 20, 2015. These Awards focus on demonstrated ethical business practices with key stakeholders including customers, employees and community at large, rather than a company’s growth, profitability or popularity. The Integrity Award Winners were chosen by an independent panel of judges consisting of Wichita business leaders and members of the academic community.

“BBB’s Integrity Award Winners have shown that ethics and integrity are core values of their organization,” said Jim Hegarty, president and chief executive officer, of Better Business Bureau, INC. serving Nebraska, South Dakota, The Kansas Plains and Southwest Iowa. “The 2015 BBB Integrity Award Winners join an elite group of organizations that realize dealing fairly and honestly with employees, customers and partners are central to profitability and growth. They serve as role models for all businesses in Kansas, and the Better Business Bureau Foundation is pleased to honor them with this prestigious award.

"As an organization, Heartspring takes great pride in being the recipient of the BBB 2015 Integrity Award," Heartspring President and CEO David Stupay said. "This award serves as a constant reminder that we have built a culture that values honesty and integrity and the validation that we are delivering on those core values."
