Dean Starts Business Ethics Awards

Byline: DeFotis & Schmitt

Wanting to move business ethics from the realm of the oxymoron and textbook theory, Paul Uselding set out to find a way to make ethics concrete for business students.

And what could be better for bringing textbook lessons to life than showcasing ethical business leaders for students?

So Uselding, dean of the College of Business Administration at the University of Illinois at Chicago, joined forces with the Chicago chapter of the Certified Life Underwriters Society to develop a business ethics award, which is loosely patterned after a national Underwriters Society business ethics award.

The awards are meant to focus attention on the issue and highlight businesses that operate ethically in their dealings with their customers, the community and their own employees, Uselding said.

According to Uselding, three West suburban businesses were among those honored as ethics standouts in an awards ceremony earlier this month during a luncheon at the Chicago Hilton Hotel & Towers.

They were Life Printing and Publishing of Oak Brook, Resource Information Management Systems Inc. of Naperville and Sterling Engineering Inc. of Westchester.

Resource Information, which manufactures software for the health care industry, was recognized for its mission statement and business policy. The family-owned Life Printing newspaper chain received the award in recognition of its civic-minded and politically involved principals.
