Halifax, Nova Scotia - For the third consecutive year, Eastlink has secured the designation as a 50 Best Managed Company. Eastlink first won the Canada's 50 Best Managed Companies designation in 2006. This prestigious national award is sponsored by Deloitte, CIBC Commercial Banking, National Post, and Queen's School of Business.
"We would like to congratulate Eastlink and its entire workforce. Achieving Canada's highest level of Canadian business excellence takes a united effort and we are privileged to acknowledge such a strong team" said John Hughes, Partner, Private Company Services group with Deloitte, a national sponsor of the Best Managed program.
Established in 1993, the Canada's 50 Best Managed Companies is a national awards program, recognizing Canadian companies that have implemented world-class business practices and created value in innovative ways. Applications are reviewed by an independent judging panel that evaluates how companies 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.
"2008 was a tremendous year for Eastlink and we continued to experience growth across all segments thank to the efforts of our employees," said Lee Bragg, co-CEO of Eastlink. "We appreciate our employees and want to recognize the contribution they have made to the company over the past year and we look for their continued support in maintaining the 50 Best designation."
For over 35 years, Eastlink has connected its customers to a world of entertainment. In 1999, the company diversified its business to become the first cable company in Canada to enter the local telephone market. This achievement created one of the most competitive telephone area codes in North America. While continuing to build on its core entertainment business, Eastlink delivers world class communication services to residential, business and public sector customers across Canada.
"To be accredited for three years as one of Canada's 50 Best Managed Companies is a remarkable achievement." said Calvin Younger, Senior Vice-President, CIBC Commercial Banking. "This award is a tribute to these companies' strong leadership, talented workforce and unsurpassed corporate values. They are models of success for companies striving to reach the highest standards."
