Professional Staffing Company Named One of Canada’s Best Managed Companies for the 17th Consecutive Year
Ottawa, ON, March 9, 2016 – Eagle Professional Resources (Eagle), one of Canada’s leading professional staffing agencies, is proud to announce it is a 2015 Platinum Club winner of Canada’s Best Managed Companies program, sponsored by Deloitte, CIBC, National Post, and Smith School of Business and MacKay CEO Forums. This is the 17th consecutive year the company has been recognized in this program. Eagle won the Best Managed award in 1999 and then achieved Platinum Club member status with Canada’s Best Managed Companies program in 2005 by retaining its Best Managed designation for six consecutive years or more.
“Companies that earn Platinum Club status in the Canada’s Best Managed program are true leaders in the Canadian marketplace,” said Jon Hountalas, Executive Vice-President, Business and Corporate Banking, CIBC. “They exemplify strong vision and leadership, a sustained commitment to growth and innovation, and dedication to their values.”
What makes this award unique compared to others is that the Best Managed Companies program measures more than financial performance. Every year, the review panel focuses on Canadian-owned and managed companies with revenues exceeding $10 million to recognize exceptional management abilities through overall business performance, sustained growth, and the efforts of each organization. The result is a list of Canadian companies who not only achieve sustainable growth at home and abroad, but outperform their competitors and create thousands of jobs.
“I would like to recognize the entire efforts of Eagle. It takes a dedicated effort from an entire team to focus on a core vision, create stakeholder value and excel in the global economy to achieve this level of success,” said Peter Brown, Partner at Deloitte and Co-Leader of Canada’s Best Managed Companies program.
With a long history in the Best Managed program, Eagle can testify to the outstanding recognition the award brings to Canadian businesses. “For over 20 years, the Best Managed Companies award has recognized the hard work of exceptional businesses across all industries, including their contributions to staff, clients and their communities. Eagle is proud of our long-standing history with this elite program,” said Eagle’s CEO, Kevin Dee. “With the media continuously showcasing the gloom and negativity in the Canadian economy, it’s encouraging to see a list of organizations across the country who are thriving and giving back.”
2015 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 April 12, 2016.
