Gold Standard

The Deloitte Best Managed Companies awards programme recognises companies who reach milestone years in the programme. Once a company first achieves Best Managed status, they can apply to re-qualify for two further years. In their fourth year, companies must complete a two-phase application and adjudication process afresh. If they succeed, they achieve the Gold Standard. Here is the full list of this year’s 13 Deloitte Best Managed Companies Gold Standard winners.
