Better Business Bureau Honors Baker Electric Solar
The Better Business Bureau Institute for Marketplace Trust recently announced the winners of the 2017 BBB International Torch Awards for Ethics. These awards are presented to businesses in recognition of best practices in leadership, character, and organizational ethics. Cleantech San Diego member company Baker Electric Solar was named the winner in the 100-499 employees category.
“These companies deserve public recognition for the steps they take each day to ensure ethical treatment of their customers, employees, vendors and suppliers, stakeholders, and the communities in which they do business,” said Genie Barton, President of the BBB Institute for Marketplace Trust.
Winners and finalists are selected by an independent panel of judges. Businesses are evaluated against criteria including leadership character; commitment to and demonstration of ethical practices in the marketplace; high standard of behavior toward customers, employees, suppliers, shareholders, and communities; truthfulness and accuracy of advertising and sales practices; ethical reputation among industry peers and communities in which they do business; and training and communications programs to assist employees in carrying out established ethics policies. To be eligible for entry in the BBB International Torch Award for Ethics, a business must first be a winner of their local BBB award program.
Family-owned and operated since 1938, Baker Electric Solar is committed to delivering premium solar and home battery systems to homeowners across Southern California. Baker prides itself on doing business “The Baker Way” – requiring a solid set of ethics including honesty, integrity, and responsiveness. Regular customer feedback and reviews ensures that every Baker team member is held responsible for delivering an extraordinary customer experience through the demonstration of those ethics and best-in-class skills. Because the company does not subcontract, homeowners have peace of mind that they will work directly with Baker throughout the process of system design and installation and for any service after installation. In addition, the company’s 25-year workmanship warranty, unique in the industry, provides further assurance to homeowners. Recognizing its most important asset, Baker’s annual Leroy Awards honor a select few employees whose significant contributions to the business and its customers serve as real-life examples of the “The Baker Way”. Employees also receive competitive pay, end of year goal bonuses, on-going training, anniversary celebrations, holiday parties, wellness seminars and team building events. Baker Electric Solar has been recognized on both local and national levels for its service and contributions to the rise of renewable energy in Southern California. The company is also a winner of the 2016 BBB Torch Awards presented by the San Diego Better Business Bureau.
