Best Managed Companies Shortlisted

The 47 companies that will compete for the Deloitte Best Managed Companies Awards 2012 were recently announced.

These companies will now be coached as part of  Phase 2 of the competition before the judging panel, chaired by Myles Lee will decide on the 20 Best Managed. Seventeen companies who have received the award each year since it began are also eligible to compete for the Gold Standard Designation, if they have maintained the Best Managed standard over the four years.

Following an IMI Symposium in March the winners will be announced at a Gala Awards Ceremony.

IMI has been the academic sponsor of the awards programme since it started in 2008 and is also involved in the final judging process which assesses shortlisted companies on strategy, capability in areas such as management resources, HR and commitment to people, as well as the company’s financial performance. Irish Life Corporate Business and The Sunday Business Post also sponsor the awards.
