As a Canadian organization, Associated Engineering is excited to once again be recognized by the Best Managed Companies program for our overall business performance and sustained growth. We are particularly proud of re-qualifying for Platinum status in this prestigious awards program honouring excellence by best-in-class, Canadian-owned and managed companies with revenues over $25 million.
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.
This past year, we continued to strive forward in executing on our strategic goals focused on a variety of initiatives and deliver on our promise of developing creative solutions for a healthy world. Some of our key achievements in 2019 as an company included becoming COR (Certificate of Recognition for Safety) certified in Ontario, expanding our Member-in-Training Program for our younger professionals, implementing a company-wide information management tool to make day-to-day work more efficient, and adding to our team of client science experts.
"We're very proud to receive the Best Managed Companies award each year, as it recognizes the commitment of our staff to client service, technical excellence, and professional and community volunteerism," says Martin Jobke, President & CEO. "Our collective efforts have resulted in our strong business performance, industry awards, and recognition as a leader among consulting firms."
The keys to our success in once again achieving Best Managed Company Platinum status are our One Company approach which brings the expertise of staff from across the company to projects, and their commitment to uncompromising service. We believe the Best Managed Companies Platinum membership distinguishes us from our competitors and is one of the reasons why people choose to work at Associated Engineering and select as us as their consultant of choice on projects across Canada.
“Best Managed Platinum Club winners are resilient. They have been consistent in successfully adapting to change throughout the years and overcoming economic challenges. These companies truly impact how Canada is viewed on the world stage when it comes to the success of private business,” says Kari Lockhart, Partner, Deloitte Private and Co-Leader, Canada’s Best Managed Companies program.
2020 winners of the Canada’s Best Managed Companies award will be honoured at the annual Canada’s Best Managed Companies gala in Toronto on April 1, 2020. The Best Managed program is sponsored by Deloitte Private, CIBC, Canadian Business, Smith School of Business, and TMX Group.
