triOS COLLEGE WINS CANADA’S BEST MANAGED COMPANIES AWARD FOR FIFTH CONSECUTIVE YEAR
For five consecutive years, triOS College Business Technology Healthcare has proved its excellence in education and career training by winning the prestigious Canada’s Best Managed Companies (Best Managed) award for excellence in Canadian business.
Sponsored by Deloitte, CIBC, National Post, Queen’s School of Business and MacKay CEO Forums, the Best Managed award recognizes Canadian owned and managed companies with revenues over $10 million for sustained growth, financial performance, management practices and the efforts of the entire organization.
“I would like to congratulate triOS College and its entire workforce. Achieving this standard of excellence takes a united effort from a dedicated team,” said Peter Brown, National Co-Leader of Canada’s Best Managed Companies Program and Senior Practice Partner, Deloitte.
The success of triOS rests on creating a structure that allows students to shine. Being a Career College, the programs are focused on the required skills graduates need in the workforce. The programs are shorter in duration which enables students to get back into the workforce quickly. triOS also focuses much of their attention on identifying the needs of local employers and building programs to fulfill those needs.
Established in 1993, Canada’s Best Managed Companies is one of the country’s leading business awards programs that recognizes Canadian companies that have implemented world-class business practices and created value in innovative ways. Applicants are evaluated by an independent judging panel on how they address various business challenges, including new technologies, globalization, brand management, leadership, leveraging and developing core competencies, designing information systems, and hiring the right talent to facilitate growth.
“triOS is a unique organization that prides itself on its ability to invest significantly in team building and employee advancement. Our employee commitment to the success of our students permeates both our triOS College and Eastern College brands. Being named as a Best Managed company for a fifth year in a row validates that we are reaching our goal of improving lives by sharing our knowledge and passion for excellence,” said Frank Gerencser, Chairman & CEO of triOS College.
“CIBC celebrates the accomplishments of this year’s winners who have demonstrated the highest levels of business excellence,” said Jon Hountalas, Executive Vice-President, Business Banking, CIBC. “We applaud their ability to adapt to the changing marketplace and the evolving needs of their clients.”
2014 winners of the Canada’s Best Managed Companies award, along with the Gold Standard winners, Re-qualified and Platinum Club members will be honoured at the annual Canada’s Best Managed Companies gala in Toronto on March 31, 2015. On the same date, the symposium will address leading-edge business issues that are key to the success of today’s business leaders.
