[Guelph, ON – May 10, 2022]
Skyline Group of Companies is thrilled to announce that it has requalified as one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies for the eighth year in a row.
Skyline has retained its Platinum Club status, which is the highest level of achievement within the program, awarded to companies who have kept their Best Managed status for seven consecutive years.
Skyline was first honoured as one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies in 2014, and qualified as a Platinum Member within the program for the first time in 2021.
Its requalification as a Platinum Member was awarded based on excellence in overall business strategy, increased focus on environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues, and driving sustainable growth.
“We’re proud to have been selected as a requalified Platinum Member within Canada’s Best Managed Companies—and to have been part of this program for the eighth consecutive year,” said Jason Castellan, Co-Founder and CEO, Skyline Group of Companies.
“I want to thank our employees for their remarkable efforts and dedication in ensuring that each part of the group of companies remains efficient, competitive, and poised for future growth and success. We are grateful to all Skyline staff for their ongoing contributions to our company’s success, and this award belongs to them.”
Canada’s Best Managed Companies continues to be the mark of excellence for Canadian-owned and managed companies with revenues over $25 million. 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.
“The 2022 Best Managed winners exemplify innovation, adaptability, and resilience in the face of uncertainty,” said Lorrie King, Partner, Deloitte Private and Co-Leader, Canada’s Best Managed Companies program.
“This year’s winners demonstrated an increased focus on environmental, social, and governance issues. They maintained an unwavering dedication to their core purpose, enhancing client relationships and cultivating a healthy corporate culture.”
Now in its 29th year, the Best Managed program seeks to recognize companies who combine strategic expertise and a culture of innovation with a steadfast commitment to their communities.
Every year, hundreds of entrepreneurial companies compete for this designation in a rigorous and independent process that evaluates the caliber of their management abilities and practices.
Applicants are evaluated by an independent judging panel comprised of representatives from
program sponsors in addition to special guest judges.
“This year’s Best Managed winners embraced a people-first mentality, enabling employees to cultivate important capabilities and integrating diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives into their core strategy. By prioritizing employee wellbeing and championing professional development, these companies have been able to harness an engaged talent pool to explore new ventures and set the course for continuous improvement and growth,” said Derrick Dempster, Partner, Deloitte Private and Co-Leader, Canada’s Best Managed Companies program.
We thank all our Skyline staff and stakeholders for their exceptional teamwork and dedication in making Skyline a business and employer of choice, and for their efforts in working tirelessly toward Skyline’s success.
