Stewart Team has Re-qualified as Deloitte Best Managed Company!
First recognised as a Deloitte Best Managed Company in 2014, the Stewart team is excited to have re-qualified under the programme this year. The awards, which recognise admirable business performance, were held at a gala ceremony in Dublin’s RDS in association with Barclays Bank Ireland on 6 March 2015. Over 800 attended including Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation Richard Bruton, TD, who gave a keynote speech at the awards.
First time recipients of the award shared the stage with platinum award winners – companies that have retained their Best Managed status for seven consecutive years – every year since the awards began. 18 companies were also presented with the gold standard accolade having secured the Best Managed status for the fourth consecutive year. 64 companies including Stewart, re-qualified as a Best Managed Company, having upheld the standard of a Deloitte Best Managed Company, following a comprehensive review process.
Former CEO of Enterprise Ireland, Frank Ryan, chaired the independent judging panel that took a holistic approach to measuring the complete company performance that went beyond a focus on financials. Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Richard Bruton, TD, congratulated the winning companies: “At the heart of our jobs plan is creating a powerful engine of Irish enterprise alongside the multinational sector. Over the past three years we have seen major progress in this area, with well over 15,000 extra people at work in these companies over that time.
“The quality of management in Irish companies is an area which we have specifically targeted, as it makes a major difference to the performance of our indigenous businesses. Through the Action Plan for Jobs we are delivering a range of new measures to address this, including improved mentoring and better management support programmes.
“This programme shows what is possible in Irish businesses with improved management and I congratulate all involved on their excellent achievement.”
Stewart are very happy to be associated with the awards and are again very proud of the contribution made by of all of its personnel in achieving this award.
