MISSISSAUGA, ON, March 9, 2016 /CNW/ - For six consecutive years, triOS College Business Technology Healthcare has proven its excellence in education and career training by winning the prestigious Canada's Best Managed Companies (Best Managed) award for excellence in Canadian business.  Sponsored by Deloitte, CIBC, National Post, Smith School of Business and MacKay CEO Forums, the Best Managed program recognizes Canadian-owned and managed companies with revenues over $10 million demonstrating strategy, capability and commitment to achieve sustainable growth.

"Best Managed companies are strong in strategy, capability, commitment and financial performance. They are all great Canadian business success stories," said Peter Brown, Partner, Deloitte and Co-Leader, Canada's Best Managed Companies program.

The success of triOS is built on a culture of transparent communication to employees and students, a willingness to react quickly to meet employer market requirements and strong respect and understanding of students' educational needs.  triOS works closely with employers to create programs that meet both technical and soft-skills needed in the workplace.  

Established in 1993, Canada's Best Managed Companies is one of the country's leading business awards programs recognizing Canadian-owned and managed companies that have implemented world-class business practices and created value in innovative ways. Applicants are evaluated by an independent judging panel on overall business performance, including leadership, strategy, core competencies, cross-functional collaboration throughout the organization, and talent.

"triOS focuses on ensuring students are prepared to excel in their new careers. We invest in our employees and college locations to create a caring, supportive environment, preparing students to become job ready graduates. Our employee commitment to the success of our students permeates both our triOS College and Eastern College brands. Requalifying as a Best Managed Company for a sixth year in a row validates that we are reaching our goal of improving lives by sharing our knowledge and passion for excellence," said Frank Gerencser, Chairman & CEO of triOS College.
