Bayshore Home Health named one of Canada's 50 Best for third consecutive year

    MISSISSAUGA, ON, Feb. 10 /CNW/ - Bayshore Home Health, Canada's largest
provider of home and community health services, has been recognized as one of
Canada's 50 Best Managed Companies for the third year in a row. It initially
won this prestigious designation in 2006 and has met rigorous standards to
requalify for it in the last two years.
    "We're honoured that Bayshore is viewed on a level that's comparable to
the very best companies across the country," says Stuart Cottrelle, President
of Bayshore Home Health. "To win this award for three years in a row shows
that our company is growing by providing great service to our clients, and
that our people are demonstrating the highest levels of innovation, drive and
leadership. This award really goes to all of our employees, as they are what
makes us a leader in our field."
    Bayshore's success and recognition as one of Canada's 50 Best Managed
Companies rests on four key business principles: a culture of commitment; a
diversified business model; a strong national presence; and ensuring its
branches are part of the communities they serve. Of these four principles, a
culture of commitment has been the biggest factor in the company's success.
    "All of our offices strive to deliver a consistent level service and go
the extra mile for our clients." says Cottrelle. "This approach comes from a
culture of commitment - which we create by encouraging employees to be
passionate about what they do, giving them latitude in how they do their jobs,
and encouraging them to speak up and offer new ideas. This type of culture
enables our people to realize how much of a difference they truly can make,
and leads to high levels workplace satisfaction and commitment."
