Article Posted on
We are pleased to announce that Arbor Memorial Inc. is a 2018 Winner of Canada’s Best Managed Companies.
Now in its 25th year, Canada’s Best Managed Companies is one of the country’s leading business awards programs recognizing Canadian-owned and managed companies for innovative, world-class business practices. The designation is also presented elsewhere in the world, with the expectation that it will be globally recognized in 20 countries by 2020.
Every year since the launch of the program in 1993, hundreds of entrepreneurial companies have competed for this designation in a rigorous and independent process that evaluates their management skills and practices.
This year alone saw hundreds of applications out of which only 44 were selected.
"It's much more than just financial performance," said Peter Brown, Partner, Deloitte and Co-Leader, Canada’s Best Managed Companies program. "The ingredients to success also include overall business performance and sustained growth. It takes dedication and commitment from the entire organization.”
The award is based on: strategy; emphasis on culture and people; innovation; sustained performance, and strong financial results.
Our winning criteria includes the way that Arbor attracts and retains top talent, offering career development and service recognition, and encouraging strategy discussion at all levels. Judges were impressed by our cultural and religious diversity, and Arbor’s fierce focus on comprehensive service. From pre-planning though to after care, Arbor offers unprecedented care, providing a sensitive but necessary service to Canadians.
This prestigious award is an honour, but it is helping families through one of life’s hardest moments that is our proudest achievement.
