TORONTO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Klick Health has been named a Best Managed Company for the 12th consecutive year. The company was also included in the Best Managed Companies’ Platinum Club for the sixth consecutive year for its innovative and entrepreneurial world-class business practices, as well as its capability to invest in R&D, tools and proprietary equipment, and corporate social responsibility.
Klick President Lori Grant said, "We hold our legacy as a Best Managed Company and Platinum Club member in the highest regard because it underscores our entrepreneurial spirit, refusal to accept the status quo, and focus on optimizing for long-term success. It reinforces that when you keep putting your people first, amazing things will keep happening. It also highlights why we are so relentless in our ongoing quest to provide our people with a rewarding, productive and healthy workplace.”
“This year’s Best Managed winners are a testament to the success found when businesses are deliberate about seizing the opportunity to do better; they invest in game-changing technology, commit to their corporate purpose and social responsibility, and solidify their place on the world stage,” said Kari Lockhart, Partner, Deloitte Private and Co-Leader, Canada’s Best Managed Companies program.
“Best Managed Platinum companies have consistently raised the bar on what it means to succeed today and in the future,” said Dino Medves, Senior Vice President and Head, CIBC Commercial Banking. “They set the highest of standards when it comes to best-in-class customer service, a highly engaged and diverse workforce and being able to give back to the communities in which they live and work.”
