May 5, 2021
Lakeside has been named a 2021 winner of the Canada’s Best Managed Companies Platinum Club designation, having retained its Best Managed designation for its 19th consecutive year.
The 2021 Best Managed program award winners are amongst the best-in-class of Canadian owned and managed companies with revenues over $25 million demonstrating leadership in the areas of strategy, capabilities and innovation, culture and commitment, and financials to achieve sustainable growth. Now in its 28th year, Canada’s Best Managed Companies remains one of the country’s leading business awards programs recognizing Canadian-owned and managed companies for innovative, world class business practices. 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.
“This year’s Best Managed winners are a shining example of the importance of leadership in the face of adversity,” said Peter Brown, Partner, Deloitte Private and Co-Leader, Canada’s Best Managed Companies program. “By using their unique purpose as the bedrock of their organizational foundation, they were able to chart a path forward with courage and resilience. In a year unlike any other, these companies should be proud not only of this prestigious designation, but the ever-important role they play in the progress and prosperity of Canada.”
Applicants are evaluated by an independent judging panel comprised of representatives from program sponsors in addition to special guest judges. 2021 Best Managed companies share commonalities that include (but are not limited to) enabling a remote workforce, making employee health a top priority, acting with an increased sense of purpose and social responsibility, and a significantly heightened focus on cash flow.
"Lakeside’s continued success is fueled by the creativity and passion of its employees. We take pride in fostering an employee-first organization that continuously strives for excellence and implements industry-leading automation solutions." said Greg Houston, President of Lakeside. "Furthermore, the ability of our employees to remain resilient and adapt to these unprecedented times has enabled Lakeside to build and maintain strong business relationships with our customers and suppliers even in a virtual environment."
2021 winners of the Canada’s Best Managed Companies award will be honoured at a virtual gala. The Best Managed virtual symposium will address leading-edge business issues that are key to the success of today’s business leaders.
The Best Managed program is sponsored by Deloitte Private, CIBC, Canadian Business, Smith School of Business, and TMX Group.
