Traction on Demand Named One of Canada’s Best Managed Companies for Fourth Year Running

Traction on Demand has received the distinguished Canada’s Best Managed Companies designation for the fourth year in a row, earning them a Gold Standard recognition.

“I’m incredibly proud of our team,” said Greg Malpass, CEO, Traction on Demand. “To be named for our fourth year in a row is a testament to the talent, passion and hard work of every single Tractionite.

“Each year this process pushes us to become the best version of ourselves. Deloitte’s Best Managed Companies continue to raise the bar on what it means to be successful and we embrace the challenge head-on.

“While we certainly don’t need an award to showcase our commitment to our community, employees and customers, it’s nice to be recognized for our efforts.”

The 2020 Best Managed program award winners are amongst the best-in-class of Canadian owned and managed companies with revenues over $25 million demonstrating investment in talent and technology, innovation in a competitive environment, and an increased focus on global competition.

“We’re humbled to be listed among an incredible community of organizations who are helping set a new standard for Canadian workplaces,” said Greg.

Applicants are evaluated by an independent judging panel comprised of representatives from program sponsors in addition to special guest judges. Selected companies share commonalities that include (but are not limited to) a clear and concise strategy, capability to invest in R&D, tools and proprietary equipment, and a strong emphasis on corporate social responsibility.

“This year’s Best Managed winners are a testament to the success found when businesses are deliberate about seizing the opportunity to do better; they invest in game-changing technology, commit to their corporate purpose and social responsibility, and solidify their place on the world stage,” said Kari Lockhart, Partner, Deloitte Private and Co-Leader, Canada’s Best Managed Companies program.

“Canada’s Best Managed Companies celebrate a community of the strongest private businesses that shape our country and fuel Canada’s competitiveness, creating sustainable economic growth in an evolving global market.”

In recognition of their continued success, Traction on Demand has received multiple accolades to date including named the #1 best place to work in 2019 by Great Place to Work Canada, The Business of Good Awards, PROFIT 500 ranking of Canada’s Fastest-Growing Companies and the Deloitte Technology Fast 50, among others.

2020 winners of Canada’s Best Managed Companies award will be honoured at the annual Canada’s Best Managed Companies gala in Toronto on April 1, 2020. On the same date, the Best Managed symposium will address leading-edge business issues that are key to the success of today’s business leaders.

“We’re humbled to be listed among an incredible community of organizations who are helping set a new standard for Canadian workplaces,” said Greg.
