Ottawa, ON, March 7, 2019 – Twenty-one years later, Eagle Professional Resources Inc. (Eagle) is proud and honoured to maintain Platinum Club status with the Canada’s Best Managed Companies program. The announcement was made this morning by Deloitte, an organization that sponsors the program along with CIBC, Canadian Business, Smith School of Business and TMX Group.
Now in its 26th year, Canada’s Best Managed Companies is one of the country’s leading business awards programs recognizing Canadian-owned and managed companies for innovative, world-class business practices. Every year, hundreds of entrepreneurial companies compete for this designation in a rigorous and independent process that evaluates the calibre of their management abilities and practices.
As noted, this is Eagle’s 21st year as a Best Managed Company. The professional staffing agency first applied to earn a spot on the list in 1999 and was inducted as a prestigious Platinum Member in 2005. Since that first application over two decades ago, Eagle has gone through a rigorous evaluation process every year in order to continue to hold on to the Best Managed titled. This year’s success can be attributed to stellar financial performance in the previous fiscal year, as well as continued innovations, investments in technology, and evolving programs that are attracting and retaining an industry-leading team.
“Companies that earn Platinum Club status, exemplify exceptional vision and leadership and a sustained commitment to growth and innovation,” said Dino Medves, Senior Vice President and Head, CIBC Commercial Banking. “CIBC is proud to recognize these and all of the 2019 Canada’s Best Managed Companies as leaders in their industries.”
“Recognition as one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies is an honour that Eagle is more and more proud to receive every year. The reputation of the sponsors and other members on the list speak volumes to the program’s integrity. Congratulations all of this year’s winners,” said Eagle’s CEO Janis Grantham. “I’d also like to take this opportunity to congratulate and thank the Eagle Team for their hard work, dedication and commitment that ensures Eagle’s spot on this prestigious list year after year.”
This year’s 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 17, 2019.
