Accepting A Best Managed Companies Award

Today we’re saying hooray to HELUKABEL Germany for winning this year’s Deloitte Private Best Managed Companies award for Exceptional Corporate Management.

HELUKABEL wins Best Managed Companies Award 2024

In May 2024, HELUKABEL Germany was awarded one of the most globally recognised awards and we couldn’t be happier for them. As the founding location and Headquarters of all of us HELUKABEL subsidiaries, they took the crown on behalf of us all. But what is the award and why does it exist? We took a deeper dive to let you all know…

What is the Best Managed Companies Award?

In 44 countries, Deloitte Digital has established a network of managed companies. They represent a range of sectors from retail and hospitality to construction and manufacturing.

In each of these countries, Deloitte hosts a yearly awards ceremony. They recognise a select number of medium-sized businesses that have shown exceptional qualities over the past year.

To select the businesses for awards, each entrant is subject to a strict evaluation process. It considers management capabilities and practices as well as strategies, innovations, culture, and financial performance.

Who Created the Best Managed Companies Award?

Deloitte Private, UBS, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung and the Federation of German Industries (BDI) were the four organisations that came together to award this year’s Best Managed Companies winners in Germany. However, each country has its own localised organisations running the event.

That said, Deloitte is the common denominator. The idea - they say - is to recognise, celebrate and connect the best private companies in each country to foster a beacon of hope for the economy.

Deloitte created the awards back in 1993. This is when they considered the Canadian economy's backbone was in Private Businesses. So, they established a way to celebrate the best companies in the country. Today, however, it’s a globally-held event.
