EPS retains its status as one of Ireland’s Best Managed Companies

(07 Mar 2017)

EPS has been named as one of Ireland’s ‘Best Managed’ companies in the Deloitte Best Managed Companies Awards Programme. The company, which demonstrated superior business performance for the third year running, was recognised at an awards gala dinner in Dublin on 3 March 2017.

The awards event in Dublin’s Convention Centre marked the ninth year of the Deloitte Best Managed Companies awards programme, in association with Barclays Bank Ireland. The awards were attended by over 900 people from the Irish business community.

The Deloitte Best Managed Companies Awards Programme, in association with Barclays Bank Ireland, recognises indigenous Irish companies across Ireland which are operating at the highest levels of business performance. The network of 127 Best Managed Companies now employs over 60,000 people around the country and has a combined turnover of almost €11bn. Recognising the importance of overseas markets for Irish companies, the Best Managed Companies also recorded an average growth in sales of 44% over the last three years.

Commenting on the award, Patrick Buckley, Managing Director at EPS said: “We are delighted to be recognised as one of Ireland’s best managed companies for the third year running. The programme has been really beneficial to us as it provided a great opportunity to reflect on our journey. Retaining our “Best Managed Company” status for three years running is a testament to the hard work of the entire EPS team who have helped build the business over the last 48 years.”

Sixteen companies from around Ireland were awarded “Best Managed” status for the first time this year, following a detailed qualification and judging process. This took into consideration the complete performance of the business, looking beyond the finances at criteria such as operational excellence, strategy and human resource processes.

Seventeen companies were presented with a “gold standard” accolade having secured “Best Managed” status for four consecutive years. Eleven companies were also presented with a “platinum club” accolade having secured “Best Managed” status for seven consecutive years. An additional 83 companies re-qualified having upheld the standard of a Deloitte Best Managed Company, following a comprehensive review process.

Managing Partner of Deloitte and judging panel member, Brendan Jennings commented:

“Congratulations to all the 2017 winners. All the companies here tonight are at the end of a long process of evaluation, which makes their Best Managed designation even more rewarding and valuable as a marketing tool for their business. It is clear that these companies make an invaluable contribution to the Irish economy - employing 60,000 people and generating turnover of €11bn.”

The Deloitte Best Managed Companies Awards, in association with Barclays Bank Ireland, is open to companies from all 32 counties on the island of Ireland. It is the only awards programme that considers a business’ performance from every perspective. Details of entry for the 2017/2018 programme will be issued in the coming months on www.deloittebestmanaged.ie. The Best Managed designation is an important marketing tool for the winning companies – but, perhaps most importantly, the awards provide a reason to celebrate the efforts of the entire company.
