Baylis Medical Named one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies for Third Consecutive Year

March 05, 2020

Baylis Medical is honoured to be recognized as one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies for the third consecutive year. 

The prestigious award program, which is run by Deloitte, recognizes Canadian companies that invest in technology and sustainable practices, have strategic development processes centered around their core strengths and are committed to building a strong corporate culture. 

Behind Baylis Medical’s continued success is a long-standing culture of social interaction and collaboration among its employees. 

“We are thrilled to have won this award for the third year in a row,” said Deb Douma, Vice President of Human Resources at Baylis Medical. “Personal growth, employee development and continuous improvement are at the forefront of the work we do every day. As a company, it’s critical that we give our employees the necessary tools and support they need as they continue to improve the lives of people around the world.” 

This year, Deloitte deliberately reduced the Best Managed winners list to half (in comparison to the 47 winners in 2019) in order to continually evolve the program and increase competition to showcase the very best across Canada.  

Baylis Medical looks forward to further innovation across all areas of the business as it continues to grow its range of products, expand into new and existing markets and add to its workforce. 

“The all-encompassing nature of Canada’s Best Managed Companies program really speaks to the diverse work we do at Baylis,” said Kris Shah, President of Baylis Medical. 

“From the conception and development, to the production and distribution of our innovative devices, every single person plays a role in the success of the company. I want to thank everyone at Baylis for the important work they do every day and for helping us win the Best Managed award.” 

2020 Best Managed award winners will be honoured at the annual Canada’s Best Managed Companies gala in Toronto on April 1, 2020.
