Ottawa, ON, March 10, 2015 – Eagle Professional Resources Inc. (Eagle), Canada’s leading professional staffing agency, is proud to announce that it has once again been named one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies. Sponsored by Deloitte, CIBC, National Post, Queen’s School of Business and MacKay CEO Forums, the company has been a member of this elite club every year since 1999. This year is a significant special achievement because it marks the 10th anniversary that Eagle has been a Platinum Member.
“Companies that earn Platinum Club status in the Canada’s Best Managed Companies program are true leaders in the Canadian marketplace,” said Jon Hountalas, Executive Vice-President, Business Banking, CIBC. “They exemplify strong vision and leadership, a sustained commitment to growth and innovation, and ongoing dedication to their corporate values.”
Established in 1993, Canada’s Best Managed Companies is one of the country’s leading business awards programs that recognizes Canadian companies that have implemented world-class business practices and created value in innovative ways. Applicants are evaluated by an independent judging panel on how they address various business challenges, including new technologies, globalization, brand management, leadership, leveraging and developing core competencies, designing information systems, and hiring the right talent to facilitate growth.
“The Eagle Team is extremely proud of this award, and to be a 10 year member in the Platinum Club is especially gratifying,” said Eagle’s CEO, Kevin Dee. “The program both challenges and rewards Canadian companies that strive for excellence, and as such, it provides tremendous benefit to the Canadian economy. The program sponsors Deloitte, National Post, CIBC, Queen’s School of Business and MacKay CEO Forums can be justly proud of the continued success of this program.”
“Today’s market place is not just about financial performance; it is also about the investment in the people. Eagle invests in their team to build up a strong and stable company. Best Managed companies are home grown companies making smart investments to achieve above average returns,” says Peter Brown, National Co-Leader of Canada’s Best Managed Companies Program and Senior Practice Partner, Deloitte.
In the past 16 years that Eagle has been a Best Managed Company, there has been significant growth. In addition to adding new lines of business including Finance and Accounting and Executive & Management Consulting, the staffing agency has also doubled its office presence across Canada, more than tripled revenues, as well more than tripled the number of employees.
2014 winners of the Canada’s Best Managed Companies award, along with the Gold Standard winners, Requalified and Platinum Club members will be honoured at the annual Canada’s Best Managed Companies gala in Toronto on March 31, 2015. On the same date, the symposium will address leading-edge business issues that are key to the success of today’s business leaders.
