TORONTO, Nov. 23, 2017 /CNW/ - Mattamy Homes, North America's largest privately owned homebuilder, is proud to have been named as one of Canada's 10 Most Admired Corporate Cultures for 2017. The honour recognizes organizations for having cultures that help sustain performance and are the benchmark for success.
"At Mattamy we've known for a long time that we have a special and unique culture that's provided a competitive advantage," says Peter Gilgan, Founder & CEO of Mattamy Homes. "I always envisioned building a company that wasn't just about business and making money. I wanted to build – and want to continue building – a culture where we are always thinking about and caring for employees, customers, trade partners, the communities we create and do business in, the environment and the world around us. It's extremely gratifying that our culture, and its impact on our company's long-term performance, has been recognized externally as well."
This national program, run by Waterstone Human Capital, is in its 14th year of recognizing best-in-class organizations that have empowering cultures.

Winners are selected by a panel of top executive judges from past winning organizations.
"At Waterstone we believe corporate culture drives performance and that it's your organization's greatest asset," said Marty Parker, President and CEO of Waterstone Human Capital. "What's remarkable about this dynamic list of 2017 winners is their commitment to culture as a competitive advantage.
