KUALA LUMPUR: Bukit Kiara Properties Sdn Bhd (BKP) has emerged winner of the “Malaysian Business Ethics Excellence Award” under the large companies category, which is defined as those with annual sales above RM25 million or with more than 150 employees.

BKP became the first and only property development company to win the accolade twice in a row after it received the inaugural award in 2006, the company said in a statement. The biennial award recognises companies practising exemplary business ethics.

The award was presented to BKP group managing director NK Tong by Minister of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Datuk Shahrir Abdul Samad at the Putrajaya International Convention Centre recently.

“The business ethics award is certainly an encouragement and endorsement to the BKP team members to continue on the right path and stay the course,” said Tong.

He said BKP’s Code of Ethics booklet was available to all employees, business associates and customers in three languages, adding that the 10-page booklet set the foundation to guide the company’s actions with the ultimate objective of improving service to homeowners as well as forge meaningful partnerships with business associates.

BKP said this year’s assessment was made based on 31 strict criteria which include the organisation’s commitment to operate at all times with transparency together with ensuring that customers are dealt with fairly and that complaints are handled expeditiously.

Seventeen companies, both local and multinationals, participated in the large companies category by submitting details of their best business ethics practices. The winners were selected by a panel of experts from the Business Ethics Institute of Malaysia (BEIM) and academics from Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UiTM).
