Friesens Corporation – One of Canada’s Best Managed Companies
We are proud to announce that Friesens Corporation was once again recognized as a “Platinum Member” of the 50 Best Managed Companies in Canada! This is our 18th year recognized by Deloitte Canada and is a high honor as it reflects Friesens strong leadership at every level of the company. The Platinum designation is reserved for businesses that have received the award for more than 7 years in a row.
“In what may be the most challenging year for Canadian businesses since the program’s inception, the 2021 Best Managed winners are a shining example of the importance of leadership, innovation, and resilience in the face of uncertainty,” said Kari Lockhart, National Co-Leader of the Canada’s Best Managed Companies program and Partner, Deloitte Private. “These companies should not only be extremely proud of this designation, but for their organizational grit, continued adaptability, and unwavering commitment to their people during a year when it was needed most.”
Deloitte is in their 28th year of the program, and in a recent press release they explained that Canada’s Best Managed Companies are finding success through organizational purpose, enabling remote work, and focusing on employee health and well-being. These are a few of the same values that Friesens has advocated, thinking ahead to the future success of their employee-owners, customers, and the company itself.
Friesens has been an anchor business in the community of Altona, Manitoba for many years and has weathered many storms throughout our 113-year history. Our 600 employee-owners are excited about the future beyond COVID-19 and cannot wait to keep growing.
