OTTAWA | JLR has been awarded Gold Status from Canada’s Best Managed Companies program, recognizing the best-in-class of Canadian-owned and -managed companies with revenues over $15-million.

Established in 1993, Canada’s Best Managed Companies is one of the country’s leading business awards programs. Applicants are evaluated by a panel of judges from Deloitte, CIBC, Canadian Business, Smith School of Business, and MacKay CEO Forums. Best Managed companies share commonalities that include an emphasis on culture and people, innovation, sustained performance, and strong financial results.

“Being one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies is recognition of the hard work and dedication of our staff. As a 100% employee-owned company, every one of us has a vested interest in making JLR a great place to work and do business,” says Saverio Parrotta, Vice President of JLR.  “We can proudly point to having an industry leading staff retention rate, and continue to grow our client base while maintaining relationships with many repeat clients — some of which have been with us for over 40 years.”

JLR won its initial Best Managed award in 2013 and has successfully retained its status since then, leading to its prestigious Gold honour this year. “Looking forward, our goal is to continue to grow as an organization and to provide opportunities for talented people to join us,” says Parrotta. “Achieving Gold Status is another momentous milestone in our 62-year history.”
