Fairfield, Ohio, June 24, 2008 —DNA Diagnostics Center is pleased to announce that the company has received the Second Annual Fairfield Rotary Club Business Ethics Award.
The award is based on five criteria: demonstrated ethical leadership, concern for customer, integrity, respect and loyalty. DDC was among the five companies nominated last year, but this year marks the first time the privately held company took the top honor.
“I’m most impressed by the fact that DDC goes way beyond the requirements to make sure that the results are accurate,” said Rotary Club President Chris Kendall.
Kendall also said that DDC showed leadership through the community outreach efforts that its employees are involved in.
The Fairfield Rotary Club and Fairfield Chamber of Commerce presented the award at a special Ethical Businesses Luncheon at the Receptions Conference Center on June 20.
“We’ve always been very proud of the way we care for our clients, our employees, and our surrounding community,” said DDC Spokesperson Jim Hanigan, who accepted the award at the luncheon. “It’s an honor to receive this award on behalf of all 200 DDC employees.”
