Reflections on Winning the Better Business Bureau Torch Award

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Tuesday, February 02, 2010

Back in 2004, SparkPeople received the Torch Award for outstanding business ethics and integrity from the Cincinnati Better Business Bureau. Recently, the Cincinnati BBB asked if we would talk a little about winning this award and how it affected our company, so they stopped by to shoot a short video, featuring SparkPeople's Editor and Content Manager, Coach Nicole.

To view the 60-second video, please click here.

It's been six years since we received this award, and we're still working hard each and every day to reach our mission of SPARKING millions of PEOPLE to reach their goals and lead healthier lives. Like the video says, we were (and still are) excited to have a positive association with the Better Business Bureau and were happy to share this video with others to promote the Torch Award to other worthy companies. Thanks for watching!

    I am catching up finally. emoticon for receiving this award, and I hope soon you will be receiving another great award such as this one.
Recognizing how sparkpeople has made a difference in my life for the better.
I have been with sparkpeople one year now, and just celebrated it with spark friends, and family for my success with them, losing 66 lbs. Proper eating habits and exercise and keeping track everyday of my progress.
From me to you, I give you this award :) emoticon for my success with sparkpeople.

Keep the spark going!!!!!
Blessings, Paula :)

    I am 3 weeks new to this site and am very impressed with all you have to offer. I used two other sites to accomplish what I can here. Thanks so much for venturing out and creating such an all-inclusive site where I can log my calories/workouts and get support for SUCCESS. Now, I will try to SPARK other people to help them. Thanks & God Bless YOU! emoticon

    I found your site a month ago looking for a calorie count chart so I could start tracking my calories. This site is the BEST. All I have to do is follow what you suggest and get up off the couch. I am down 12 lbs. and over 15 inches. Thank you for all of it. emoticon emoticon
