EPS has been named as one of Ireland’s ‘Best Managed’ companies in the Deloitte Best Managed Companies Awards programme. The company was recognised at an awards gala dinner in Dublin on March 4, 2016.
The awards event in Dublin’s Convention Centre marked the eighth year of the Deloitte Best Managed Companies awards programme, in association with Barclays Bank Ireland.
The awards were attended by more than 800 people from the Irish business community. Frank Ryan, chair of the independent judging panel, was the keynote speaker on the night.
The programme recognises indigenous Irish companies that are operating at the highest levels of business performance. The network of 115 Best Managed Companies now employs more than 47,000 people and has a combined turnover of almost €10 billion.
Recognising the importance of overseas markets for Irish companies, the Best Managed Companies also recorded an average growth in export sales of 161 per cent over the past three years.
Patrick Buckley, deputy managing director at EPS, said: “This is a very important award for the EPS team. The evaluation process required in order to maintain our Deloitte ‘Best Managed’ company status extended far beyond financial results, challenging all aspects of our business.
“To meet these high standards and to be retained as a Best Managed Company is testament to the hard work and dedication of the entire EPS team. It is our intention to continue to use best practices throughout the organisation going forward.”
EPS was one of 70 companies to requalify for the Deloitte Best Managed status. Companies that apply for requalification must satisfy the programme eligibility criteria and go through a requalification review process in order to ensure that the companies continue to uphold the Best Managed standard.
The group’s requalification status means that it not only got nominated and won the award in 2015 but managed to retain the required business practices to be granted the award two years in a row.
