EPS has been shortlisted as a finalist for the 2014 Deloitte Best Managed Companies Awards. Now in their sixth year, the awards recognise indigenous Irish companies across the island of Ireland that are operating at the highest level of business performance. The programme identifies how companies are mastering their growth strategies across all key management functions and is unique in the way in which it recognises the efforts of the entire organisation, not just one individual.
Speaking after the announcement, Patrick Buckley, Deputy Managing Director at EPS commented: “We are delighted to have been shortlisted for this prestigious award programme. This endorsement is recognition of our ongoing efforts over the past 3 years to adapt and develop our management practices and strategies to compete in new and challenging markets.”
Companies from all provinces are competing for the award, with Antrim, Cork, Clare, Derry, Down, Dublin, Galway, Kerry, Laois, Louth, Monaghan, Waterford and Tyrone all represented on this year’s shortlist. The companies represent a variety of industries including manufacturing, technology and media, financial services, energy and resources, consumer business, life sciences and healthcare, and hospitality amongst others.
The judging panel chaired by Frank Ryan, former CEO of Enterprise Ireland, will narrow the list of 40 to the 20 Best Managed Companies in March 2014. EPS faces stiff competition competing against companies including PM Group, Topaz Energy Limited, TLI Group, Zenith Technologies and Heatons & Sportsworld
