In the summer of 2013, FWS was first invited to participate in the “Canada’s Best Managed Companies” program, one of the country’s premier business awards programs. This in itself was deemed to be a significant recognition, however, following an extensive application and evaluation process, FWS was very pleased to be chosen as Manitoba’s only new finalist to the program for 2013. “Competition” elevated to the national level and in late 2013, the process culminated with FWS being named to the 2013 national list of new entrants to the “Best Managed” program. The formal award was completed in April of 2014 at a gala event in Toronto and FWS was deeply honored to have been selected to join the august group that includes many of Canada’s most effective companies. Following re-qualification in 2014, FWS was again recognized at the 2015 gala awards.
The program involves objective third party judges measuring excellence in management abilities, practices and performance achievement. The fact that our company has been recognized in this manner is extremely satisfying and provides our management team with heightened confidence that it is exhibiting effective leadership in a challenging industry!
