The Better Business Bureau of Minnesota and North Dakota has announced that WaterFilters.NET of Zumbrota, MN is among a select number of finalists for the 2011 Better Business Bureau Integrity Awards. The BBB Integrity Award recognizes companies who display an outstanding level of ethics and integrity in all of their business dealings. This award is open to all for-profit businesses in Minnesota and North Dakota, who are in good standing with the Better Business Bureau. Membership in the BBB is not required.
In order to be eligible, a company must first be nominated for the award. There are four available size categories based upon number of employees, ranging from Category I (ten or less employees) to Category IV (100 or more employees). WaterFilters.NET qualified in Category II with thirty employees currently. After WaterFilters.NET was nominated for the Integrity Award, a team of associates completed the formal entry process. The entry asked the internet retailer to demonstrate their commitment to ethics by addressing the following four major areas of their business: Management Practices, Business Relations (both with customers and suppliers), Marketing and Sales Practices, and Reputation (in the broader industry and local community).
WaterFilters.NET is a water treatment superstore, offering an extensive variety of water filters. As a fast-growing e-commerce leader, the WaterFilters.NET website offers replacement cartridges for all types of sediment and carbon filtration—including reverse osmosis, whole house and under-sink systems, as well as faucet, shower and refrigerator filters.

Operations Manager for WaterFilters.NET John Daniels reflected on being named a finalist for this year’s award: “Integrity is one of our nine WaterFilters.NET Core Values. In our company culture, business ethics and integrity are not only an outward expression but also an inner sense driven by honesty and character.”
Integrity Award entries are reviewed by an independent panel of judges. The judges determine the finalists and award recipients for each category. All company finalists are recognized at the Integrity Awards ceremony, and award winners are announced live at the event. Past recipients include such well-known companies as Wells Fargo, Best Buy, and Pella Windows & Doors.
“Today more than ever it’s necessary that we spotlight and celebrate companies in our region who operate with integrity in all aspects of their operations,” said Dana Badgerow, President and CEO of the BBB of Minnesota and North Dakota. “The Better Business Bureau and our fellow Integrity Awards sponsors are proud to provide the platform for this special event which recognizes the wonderful achievements of all of our finalists.”
WaterFilters.NET is honored to be recognized for our commitment to integrity in every aspect of our business.
