Canada’s Best Managed

This award, organized by Deloitte, recognizes excellence in Canadian-owned and -managed companies with revenues over $15 million. This competitive designation evaluates an organization’s strategy, capability, team alignment, and financial performance.

Also, this is the third consecutive year BEST has been awarded the Gold Standard for this award, for companies who have demonstrated the commitment to the Best Managed program and successfully retained this award for four to six consecutive years.

 

 

Canada’s Most Admired Corporate Culture

This national program recognizes best-in-class Canadian organizations for having cultures that enhance performance and sustain a competitive advantage. Forty winners are chosen annually across four categories: three are based on revenue (growth and small-cap, mid-market and enterprise) and one not-for-profit category (broader public sector).

Organization submissions are scored on six categories: vision and leadership; recruitment and hiring for fit; cultural alignment and measurement; retention, rewards and recognition; organizational performance; and corporate social responsibility. Canada’s 10 Most Admired Corporate Cultures™ program creates a benchmark of success for all those who are nominated.
