Cypress HomeCare Solutions wins Better Business Bureau's Torch Awards for Ethics, 2013 and 2018

Posted By Bob Roth, Cypress HomeCare Solutions, Wednesday, August 1, 2018

Watch Video: Quick look at 2018 BBB Torch Awards for Ethics Winner

Phoenix, AZ, May 18, 2018 – Serving the Maricopa County Region since 1994 Cypress HomeCare Solutions (Cypress) continues to fulfill its mission to provide quality, individualized and compassionate care to clients so they can age successfully and independently in their own homes. Given the personal nature of home care, it’s important for any agency to have a strong set of principles guiding their practices. The Better Business Bureau (BBB) has once again recognized Cypress with the Torch Awards for Ethics.

The BBB Torch Awards for Ethics recognizes companies who exemplify strong ethics, leadership and social responsibility. It is open to for-profit businesses who are in good standing with BBB. Following a nomination, each company must demonstrate their commitment to ethics in each of the following categories: Leadership Commitment to Ethics, Communications of Ethical Practices, Organizational Commitment to Ethical Practice, Organizational Commitment to Performance Management Practices, Organizational Commitment to Ethical Human Resource Practices and Organizational Commitment to the Community.

Back in 2013 Cypress was the first home care/home healthcare agency to be nominated for this prestigious award.  They were then selected as one of three finalists. As if this wasn’t a big enough honor, Cypress went on to be selected as the winner in its category.  After waiting the required five years to be considered again, Cypress was once again selected as the 2018 Torch Awards for Ethics winner.

Matthew Fehling, BBB President/CEO, had this to say about the win, “Cypress HomeCare Solutions is a great example of a company always looking to grow. They’ve taken past accomplishments and accolades and found ways to top even those shining moments to bring more value to the communities they serve. Congratulations to Bob and the Cypress team.”

Bob Roth, Managing Partner of Cypress HomeCare Solutions is honored to be recognized once again for Cypress’ unwavering commitment to ethics.  “When a care recipient opens up their door, they open their life to a caregiver.  From my perspective, I don’t see a profession that requires more ethics than a home care agency that supplies these highly qualified caregivers.  To me winning this award is not only recognizing Cypress for the good work that we are doing in the community.  I feel as if we are representing our industry and this award belongs to all of the agencies that are making a difference in the lives of the people they serve,” says Roth.

Cypress HomeCare Solutions corporate headquarters are located at 5225 N. Central Ave. Suite 212 Phoenix, Arizona 85012. For more information visit or contact Kathleen Shiman at or 602-264-8009.

Help Honor the Best Businesses in Arizona Nominate Your Favorite for a Spirit of Enterprise Award

Posted By Rick Murray, Arizona Small Business Association, Monday, April 13, 2015

TEMPE, Ariz. (April 13, 2015) — Do you have a favorite Arizona business? Help it get some recognition by nominating it for the 19th annual Spirit of Enterprise Awards from the W. P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University.

The awards recognize some of the state’s best companies for creating jobs, boosting our economy and delivering great service to customers. Past winners include both well-known names and fast-growing businesses, such as Infusionsoft, Total Transit (Discount Cab), Ollie the Trolley, Kitchell and China Mist.

“Each year, we honor Arizona companies for demonstrating ethics, energy and excellence in entrepreneurship,” says Sidnee Peck, director of the Center for Entrepreneurship at the W. P. Carey School of Business. “We’re looking for firms that are innovative, have a positive internal culture, and make an impact both on our economy and in our communities.”

Each business can be nominated for up to three of the six Spirit of Enterprise Award categories described at this website:

Primary requirements include that a company is a for-profit enterprise and is incorporated, headquartered or having a majority of its business operations in Arizona.

One minority-owned business will win the Gary L. Trujillo Minority Enterprise Award sponsored by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona. Companies started by Arizona State University students are eligible to win the Student Entrepreneur Award.

Award nominations will be accepted until June 26. To nominate, go to and click the nominate button. Nominated businesses will have until July 31 to fill out an awards application.

Winners will be announced at a luncheon Friday, Nov. 20 at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort. Hundreds of business and community leaders attend the annual event.

For more information on nominating a company, applying for the awards, or attending the luncheon, call (480) 965-0474, e-mail, or visit

These awards are just one focus of the Center for Entrepreneurship, which helps hundreds of businesses each year. The center recently introduced the Sun Devil Select competition to honor ASU alum-owned or alum-led businesses, as well as the Sun Devil Igniter Challenge, a pitch competition for student businesses. The center also offers companies a chance to recruit and meet with top student talent, while allowing students to get hands-on business experience. The center is a gateway to access other ASU business resources. It is self-funded and utilizes community sponsorships and volunteers to sustain its activities.

The W. P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University is one of the top-ranked and largest business schools in the United States. The school is internationally regarded for its research productivity and its distinguished faculty members, including a Nobel Prize winner.
