Toronto (March 2014) – R.V. Anderson Associates Limited is pleased to announce that the firm has maintained its Gold Standard status as one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies. Companies that retain the Best Managed designation for four to six consecutive years are eligible for the Gold Standard status. R.V. Anderson Associates has received the prestigious national award each year since 2008.
In response to two significant industry trends, increasing competition and risk management, R.V. Anderson Associates adjusted its corporate strategy to ensure continued success in the pursuit of its corporate vision. The firm’s traditional “culture of ownership” was further refined by an increased focus on performance and accountability. New tools, metrics and training were introduced to enhance customer service and project delivery, as well as strengthen company profitability.
“The company’s continued success shows that adapting to emerging business environments is key to sustaining our commitment to provide quality services to our clients,” says Ken Morrison, president of R.V. Anderson Associates. “We are pleased to be again recognized as one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies.”
