‘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.’Patrick Buckley
Deputy Managing Director
EPS retains status as Best Managed Company
About the Award
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 second year running, was recognised at an awards gala dinner in Dublin on 4 March 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 over 800 people from the Irish business community. Frank Ryan, chair of the independent judging panel, was keynote speaker on the night.
EPS was one of 70 companies to re-qualify 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.
