Upper Crust, the Canadian bakery that provides baked goods for food service and retail brands, recently announced a new milestone.
The bakery was recognized as one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies for 2021. This national business award program is a flagship program presented by Deloitte Private, a division of Deloitte exclusively focused on serving private clients of all sizes, and spotlights the best Canadian, privately owned companies.
“In what may be the most challenging year for Canadian businesses since the program’s inception, the 2021 Best Managed winners are a shining example of the importance of leadership, innovation, and resilience in the face of uncertainty,” said Kari Lockhart, National Co-Leader of the Canada’s Best Managed Companies program and Partner, Deloitte Private in a statement. “These companies should not only be extremely proud of this designation, but for their organizational grit, continued adaptability, and unwavering commitment to their people during a year when it was needed most.”
This year’s winners were recognized their organizational purpose, their ability to pivot to a remote work environment and their commitment to the health and well-being of their staff. By emphasizing employee health as a major priority over the past year, Best Managed companies lead the way in making their workers feel safe and valued, which in turn generated more productivity.
