Omicron Canada Inc. requalifies as a 2017 Canada’s Best Managed Companies Platinum Club member

Omicron Canada Inc. has requalified as a 2017 Canada’s Best Managed Companies Platinum Club member by maintaining our Best Managed status for seven consecutive years. Canada’s Best Managed Companies continues to be the mark of excellence for Canadian-owned and managed companies with revenues over $15 million.

“Best Managed Platinum winners have exceptional insights and knowledge into business management practices. They are an inspiration and really take their game to a new level,” said Lorrie King, Partner, Deloitte and Co-Leader, Canada’s Best Managed Companies program.

The basis of our requalification relates to Omicron’s continued commitment over the past 18 years to create a better experience for our clients and our people. We know that it’s not what we do, but how and why we do it, that sets us apart from our competition. “We are thrilled to maintain our designation as Platinum Club members. Being part of such a successful group of companies adds tremendous value to our business. By learning and sharing from one another we are able to strengthen our business operations and explore new opportunities,” said Bill Tucker, CEO.

Established in 1993, Canada’s Best Managed Companies is one of the country’s leading business awards programs recognizing Canadian-owned and managed companies that have implemented world-class business practices and created value in innovative ways. Applicants are evaluated by an independent judging panel on overall business performance, including leadership, strategy, core competencies, cross-functional collaboration throughout organization, and talent.
