Going Platinum: How GLBC has maintained its status as one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies

April 6, 2018

It is a symbol of excellence and a source of pride. For the past 25 years, Deloitte Canada has honoured and celebrated Canada’s Best Managed Companies. Great Little Box Company is humbled to be included on this list.

Since 2010, GLBC has been a Platinum Club member of Canada’s Best Managed Companies. While the awards are celebrated once a year, it is a distinction GLBC works hard to maintain on a daily basis. Our business has grown and changed, been challenged and triumphed. Through it all, we have maintained our core values, investing in great people in order to foster a great work environment.

Great Little Box has created a company culture that we are proud to be recognized for. For more than 35 years, our management team has developed ongoing skills training and employee empowerment programs to ensure all our employees feel valued, worthy, and appreciated. We know that without a staff of people who are willing to go above and beyond on a daily basis, we wouldn’t be where we are today.

The market we work in is competitive and constantly changing. We have worked hard to build a loyal customer base, knowing that what sets us apart is our people and our service.

Throughout our 35 years in operation, our services and offerings have grown. We have broken into new markets, acquired new machinery, gotten more creative, and pushed the boundaries of what we are capable of. We are proud of our growth and proud to represent our customers. But above everything, after 35 years in operation, we are most proud of our company culture.

We have built a diverse team and established a firm culture. We love to celebrate, whether it is a National holiday or Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day. From outdoor movie nights to fishing adventures, to gourmet ice cream, life at Great Little Box is filled with adventure, fun, and laughter. Holidays provide a chance to show off our incredible decorating capabilities and we have even figured out how to make fitness fun.

We work hard but always find time to give back. We want to be part of the communities we operate in and do our part to make the world a better place. Philanthropy is part of who we are and the legacy we want to maintain. It is our community who has helped us get to where we are and we want to do what we can to see our communities grow and prosper like we have.

Managing a company isn’t easy. Managing hundreds of employees isn’t easy. At Great Little Box, we know how important it is to communicate regularly, be a source of inspiration, and ensure all employees feel valued and appreciated. Our Platinum Club status of Canada’s Best Managed Companies signifies that we are moving in the right direction. We are working every day to be better, to do better and make better products. We are proud of where we have come from, what we have built, and where we are going.

To everyone who makes Great Little Box an incredible place to work, we share this honour with all of you. You make this company what it is and we are proud to have you as part of the GLBC family.
