REGINA, Oct. 30, 2013 /CNW/ - Information Services Corporation (TSX:ISV) was awarded a Canada Award for Excellence at the Platinum Level by Excellence Canada at a ceremony in Toronto, ON today.
The platinum-level award is the highest level of achievement in the Excellence, Innovation and Wellness standard, and recognizes workplaces with sound, systematic approaches to business, including a commitment to continuous improvement throughout the organization, sustained positive improvements in all areas, and recognized leadership within its sector.
ISC representatives attended the Canada Awards for Excellence Luncheon in Toronto to receive the award. "This award is a significant accomplishment for us," Jeff Stusek, ISC President and CEO, said. "This recognition marks a milestone in ISC's evolution and gives us the tools we need to maintain a healthy and successful workplace now and into the future."
