Levitt-Safety, along with NL Technologies, has just been recognized as a Gold Standard Winner among Canada’s Best Managed Companies. In order to achieve Gold Standard, we had to have requalified both of the last two years and pass through the same rigorous application process as the “new” winners. Our submission was reviewed by an independent third party panel, and we passed with flying colours.
During the application process, we had to answer almost 20 essay-style questions focused on the following areas:
- Strategy – business planning and how we differentiate ourselves
- Capability – how we use technology and innovation to drive our business
- Commitment – how do we create a unique culture, what training do we offer and how do we align compensation
- Return on Investment – financial performance, metrics and measures we put in place to track how we are doing and how we effectively manage risk
The Best Managed designation was launched in 1993 and recognizes excellence in Canadian owned and managed companies. We are one of only 406 companies across the country to currently hold a Best Managed designation.
I want to congratulate each and every one of our employees for contributing to our ongoing success! As we bask in this achievement, we continue to encourage our staff to pause and reflect on what they can do individually – and as a team – to help ensure that we continue to live up to the standards we have set, while continually improving our service to you, our customers.
I look forward to Levitt-Safety continuing to be one of Canada’s Best Managed, and in three years strive to hit their highest designation – Platinum.
