The accolade was announced by Deloitte Ireland in association with Bank of Ireland, at a virtual awards ceremony on Wednesday, September 8, 2021.
David Jeffreys, CEO of ActionPoint said it was a privilege to be amongst the Gold Partner award winners:
“We are delighted to be recognised as a Deloitte Best Managed Company for the Fifth year in row. Retaining our Gold Status is the result of a concerted effort across the commercial and operational sides of our business. The team have worked incredibly hard over the past year to ensure that these standards are maintained and that our customers receive the same excellent service during this challenging period. To know that even during one of the most trying years for business, ActionPoint were able to achieve this, makes us incredibly proud”, Mr. Jeffreys said.
Ireland’s Best Managed Companies Awards programme promotes and recognises excellence in Irish/Northern Irish owned and managed companies and is the only awards scheme on the island of Ireland that considers a business’ performance from every perspective.
Anya Cummins, Lead Partner for Ireland’s Best Managed Companies Awards Programme at Deloitte Ireland said: “This year, a record number of applications to the Ireland’s Best Managed Companies Awards programme were received. The quality of the applicants demonstrated the extraordinarily high-quality businesses operating across the island of Ireland today.”
With this year’s new winners, there are now 139 companies that are recognised as Ireland’s Best Managed Companies. This network of companies has a combined turnover of €8.5 billion and employs a total of 40,000 people.
Entrants to the programme compete for the designation in a rigorous process that evaluates the calibre of their management abilities and practices in addition to the strategy, capability, innovation, culture and financial performance of their companies.
Harry Goddard, CEO, Deloitte Ireland and judging panel member commented: “This year’s winning companies had robust strategies in place prior to the pandemic, which enabled them to respond comprehensively to the changing situations they found themselves in. With no sector untouched by the impact of Covid-19, many companies remained committed to ensuring that they did not fall into the trap of doing things like they had always been done, just because that had worked in the past. In fact, many companies took the extraordinary challenge as an opportunity to develop and improve processes.
