TORONTO, ON, December 5, 2012 – OPTIMUS | SBR, a Toronto-based management consulting firm, is proud to announce that it has been named as one of the 2013 Best Small & Medium Employers in Canada. The study was conducted by Aon Hewitt and the Queen’s School of Business and the announcement comes shortly after OPTIMUS | SBR was named as the 8th Best Employer in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) for 2013.
As part of the initial integration plan in 2010, OPTIMUS | SBR management believed that in order to be successful, they needed to focus on three key themes. First, they implemented a “Bold Attitude” culture, where employees are empowered to take an active role in their work. Second, there was emphasis placed on building strong relationships between employees on both a professional and personal level. The firm celebrates successes often and hosts events throughout the year where families are invited to participate. And finally, rooted in the Accountability Framework® System, their trademarked management framework, steps were taken to fundamentally change the way that employees worked. OPTIMUS | SBR made a major investment in the tools, technologies and physical environment to improve working conditions for their employees.
“This award is really a reflection of our employees. We created the infrastructure for an engaged culture, but we wouldn’t have been able to accomplish this without the team. Our people are what make OPTIMUS | SBR a great place to work,” shares Kevin Gauci, Managing Director for OPTIMUS | SBR.
By developing an organization that places a premium on high levels of engagement, and having the right team in place to carry that vision through, OPTIMUS | SBR is poised to continue building an environment where people are engaged, eager to produce outstanding results and will help drive the firm forward.
