We Scored a Hat Trick – Canada’s 50 Best

For the third year in a row, Saskatchewan Minerals Inc. has been named one of the 50 Best Managed Companies in Canada.

This year will mark the third year that Saskatchewan Minerals Inc., a world-leader in the production of sodium sulphate, will hold the distinction of being recognized as one of Canada’s 50 Best Managed Companies, a mark of excellence for Canadian-owned and -managed private companies in the nation.

For over 17 years, Canada’s 50 Best Managed Companies national awards program—sponsored by Deloitte, CIBC, National Post, and Queen’s School of Business—has recognized some of the most innovative, best managed companies in Canada that have created value and implemented world-class business practices in an inventive way.

Demonstrating business excellence and acumen through strong leadership, management and best practices, Saskatchewan Minerals Inc. tops the list of best entrepreneurial businesses in Canada.

Achieving the highest level of business excellence

“It wasn’t just the designation of being one of Canada’s 50 Best Managed Companies, it’s what it meant to us internally,” says Rodney McCann, president and CEO of Saskatchewan Minerals Inc. “We’re fortunate to have been designated just one year, [but] to be sitting now on our hat trick of awards, it’s beyond what I could have expected!”

A long and rigorous evaluation process, the 50 Best Managed Companies program sees hundreds of entrepreneurial companies competing every year for the sought-after designation – one that helps companies set the bar for future successes.

“In 2009, our first year [of being designated], I celebrated it,” says Rodney. “[Our employees] took it as a commitment, they took it as a challenge, to make sure we’re awarded in [the future].”

Serving as a rallying point for employees, the Best Managed designation has served to boost Saskatchewan Minerals’ credibility in the marketplace, both nationally and globally, and has allowed them to continue their commitment to customer service both through the delivery of excellent product quality and added value.

For Rodney, “We’ve got a wonderful organization and to be recognized as one of Canada’s 50 Best Managed Companies, for a third year in a row, I couldn’t be more proud.”
