Englobe has been recognized with the prestigious Canada’s Best Managed Companies designation for overall business performance and sustained growth. The Best Managed designation is the preeminent distinction for privately owned and managed businesses in Canada, and the 2020 winners are among the best-in-class for Canadian businesses with revenues over $25 million.
For 27 years, the program has celebrated Canadian business success and the significant role that private firms like Englobe play in fuelling economic growth and job creation. Each year, hundreds of applicants compete for this designation in a rigorous and independent process that evaluates strategic planning, operations, corporate culture, and financial performance to assess the caliber of their management abilities and practices.
Englobe stood out during the process thanks to it’s sustained growth and unique approach to corporate culture. Our management has set aside the “one size fits all” model in favour of an inclusive approach that has been the cornerstone of our success. At Englobe, we don’t simply embrace, encourage, and celebrate difference—our business thrives on it, and the Best Managed designation is a testament to that fact.
We are incredibly proud of this award and what it means for Englobe. It’s a sign of our commitment to doing better and being better—work we know is never complete. As a team, we’ll continue to look for new ways to improve the employee and client experience.
More than anything, this award is a celebration of the entire Englobe family: all our team members, in all offices coast to coast in Canada and overseas in the UK and France. We share this honour with each and every member of our team, because everyone played a vital part in this achievement.
The 2020 winners of the Canada’s Best Managed Companies award will be honoured at the annual Canada’s Best Managed Companies gala in Toronto on April 1. There will also be a Best Managed symposium that will cover current business issues impacting Canadian businesses.
