Modu-Loc Named a Best Managed Company Again

March 8, 2018

[:en]Modu-Loc has requalified for the Canada’s Best Managed Companies program, having been named a Best Managed company for the fifth consecutive year. Modu-Loc first qualified for Best Managed status in 2013, and became a Gold Standard winner in 2017.

Our application for the award highlighted a continued commitment to innovation, including product improvements intended to address the needs of heavy construction firms and major infrastructure projects. Last year, we formally launched our redesigned fence on jersey barrier system, which has patents pending in the United States and Canada. Our concrete block ballast system is currently the only engineered temporary fence system in the country that is designed to resolve stability issues in windy conditions.

Modu-Loc’s ongoing focus on talent management and employee retention also formed a key component of our application. The introduction of new employee bonuses and incentives, expansion of extracurricular training and development programs, and formation of employee-led committees were just some of the ways we were able to demonstrate our commitment to our team members.

Ultimately, we must recognize that we could not have earned this prestigious award without the unwavering dedication and efforts of all of our employees at each of our depots across Canada. The Best Managed designation reflects the contributions of each and every Modu-Loc team member who lives and breathes our Core Values every day.

Once again, we thank all of our employees for their hard work, devotion, ingenuity and eagerness to go the extra mile. These qualities are not only recognized and appreciated by all of us at Modu-Loc, but also by our customers, partners, and the Deloitte judges who deemed us worthy of the Best Managed title!
