The Maplewood Awards program was created to inspire, recognize and reward business achievements in terms of growth, environmental awareness and contributions to the community. The awards will be presented at the January 2017 State of Maplewood Community Luncheon.
The Maplewood Awards program will include the following three awards:
The Entrepreneurship/Innovation/Growth Award is an external incentive for Maplewood businesses and entrepreneurs to establish and achieve aggressive goals that result in the creation of new businesses and improvements to existing businesses.
The Environmental Sustainability Award is an external incentive for Maplewood businesses to improve their energy conservation and waste disposal policies, practices and operational procedures which will yield cost savings and improvements to their bottom line. Reducing costs will free up resources that can then be used to grow the business.
The Community Contribution Award is an external incentive for Maplewood businesses to increase the level of their engagement, support and contributions to the community. This award is to honor Maplewood businesses that have improved their ability to attract, engage, and retain employees who value social responsibility. Social responsibility is linked to improved organizational performance.
