Eagle was a winner of Canada’s 50 Best Managed Companies for the first time in 1999 and has been on the list ever since. In 2005, we achieved Platinum Club status, awarded to companies that have maintained “50 Best” status for a minimum of six consecutive years, and we couldn’t be more proud! The program was created in 1993 to raise the profile of Canadian businesses. Every year, applications are sent out to thousands of companies across Canada. This award stands out for Eagle not because of any one individual’s efforts, but because it represents our accomplishments as a team.
According to the congratulatory letter from the program’s sponsors—Deloitte and Touche, CIBC Commercial Banking, Queen’s School of Business and the National Post—the program honours Canadian owned businesses that have “outstripped their competitors, created thousands of jobs, produced accelerating revenues and excelled both at home and abroad.”
Eligible companies must first meet the qualifying attributes:
- Canadian owned (over 50%);
- revenues between $10 million and $2 billion; and
- strong growth over 3 years.
Once eligibility has been determined, the selection criterion is concise, but clear. The winning companies must demonstrate:
- excellent products and/or services;
- a motivated team of employees;
- outstanding customer service; and
- implementation of the right business strategy.
Because we care.
To those outside of our company, this award reflects our commitment to best business practices. To those of us at Eagle, however, it reflects something much more important—our commitment to people. Our success is built on our reputation and our reputation is built on our relationships—with our clients, our candidates and our employees. When we do what’s best for them, we can’t help but be successful.
We put it in writing.
Fairness, professionalism, honesty, integrity. These are among the first few words you will find in our Code of Ethics which has been framed and posted prominently in every Eagle office across the country. It’s more than our corporate culture—we don’t just work by it, we live by it.
