HALIFAX, March 8, 2018 /CNW/ - Eastlink confirmed today that the company has been recognized by Deloitte Canada as one of Canada's Best Managed Companies for the 12th consecutive year.
"We're incredibly proud to have once again met the standards of excellence synonymous with Deloitte Canada's Best Managed Companies program," said Lee Bragg, CEO. "Earning this designation consistently over the past 12 years is truly a reflection of our entire team's commitment to delivering an exceptional customer experience."
Deloitte Canada's Best Managed Companies program is the country's leading business awards program, recognizing Canadian companies that demonstrate profitability, innovation and overall corporate success.
"It's much more than just financial performance," said Mat Harris, Regional Managing Partner of Deloitte's Atlantic practice. "The ingredients to success also include overall business performance and sustained growth. It takes dedication and commitment from the entire organization."
Mr. Bragg explains that key to the continued success of the company is a set of principles that guide how the business operates across all of its functional areas. These include focusing on doing the right thing for the business, pursuing excellence, not perfection, seeing constraints as opportunities not barriers, continuous learning, an accountability philosophy to "see it, own it, and solve it", and using information, metrics and analysis to drive decisions and insights.
"As a Canadian, family-owned company, with roots in small town Canada, we are all the more proud that we can be successful in an industry where there is extreme competition and ever-intensifying regulatory obligations," said Lee Bragg, CEO Eastlink.
Eastlink was first recognized by Deloitte Canada as one of Canada's Best Managed Companies in 2006, and in 2013 earned the program's prestigious Platinum Club status.
