Harbour Air is proud to be named one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies for the 12th overall year. This also marks the company’s sixth consecutive year maintaining the prestigious status as a Platinum Club Member. The award program recognizes overall business performance and winners are amongst the best-in-class of Canadian-owned and managed companies. Harbour Air was recognized thanks to its focus on innovation, strategy, sustainability, culture and industry leadership.
“Being recognized as one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies is particularly meaningful to us this year,” said Randy Wright, Harbour Air President. “I’m really proud of the remarkable resilience and leadership our team has demonstrated amidst so many unprecedented challenges.”
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.
“This year’s Best Managed winners demonstrate the organizational grit required to thrive in these increasingly uncertain times,” said Kari Lockhart, Partner, Deloitte Private and Co-Leader, Canada’s Best Managed Companies program. “By putting their people first, and showing the courage to experiment and take risks, they were able to overcome some of today’s most pressing challenges. This year’s winners were able to succeed because they weren’t afraid to fail.”
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.
