Schemmer was awarded the 2019 Better Business Bureau (BBB) Integrity Award in the large for-profit (100-249 employees) business category. The Award focuses 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 metro Omaha 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,” stated Jim Hegarty, president and CEO of Better Business Bureau, Inc. serving Nebraska, South Dakota, the Kansas Plains and Southwest Iowa. “The 2019 BBB Integrity Award winners join an elite group of organizations that realize dealing fairly and honestly with employees, customers and partners is central to profitability and growth. They serve as role models for all businesses located in the metro Omaha area, and the Better Business Bureau Foundation is pleased to honor them with this prestigious award.”
"I am thankful I get to work with employees of high character and professionalism and thankful to the Better Business Bureau for this great honor. We understand it’s not by accident that our firm is being recognized. We strive to create an environment that puts ethics and integrity at the forefront of how we conduct business and our partnerships in the community. This award is an affirmation of that,” said Schemmer's President and CEO, Steve Kathol, PE, SE.
