April 18, 2019

Waterloo, Ontario, April 18, 2019 – For the sixth straight year, peopleCare Communities has been named one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies, earning a Gold Standard designation for successfully attaining the award each consecutive year since first applying in 2013.

Proud and honoured, company owners Brent and Heather Gingerich say that winning this distinguished business award is a direct reflection of the talented leaders who work at peopleCare.

“We’ve long fostered leadership at all levels across our homes – we believe it’s key to a strong and effective organization that is empowered to achieve our vision to improve the world of senior living,” says Chief Executive Officer Brent. “We thank Deloitte and its partners for this recognition, which we share with each and every one of our skilled, dedicated and valued employees.”

According to Deloitte Private, which co-sponsors the award program, this year’s winners are highly future-focused, innovative and people-centric, helping them outpace their competitors. They are also engaged in long-term thinking that puts them “ahead of the curve,” in preparing for future growth.

Operating in the health care sector, which is undergoing profound change, peopleCare has strategically positioned itself for industry leadership, innovation, quality and efficiency, in part by hiring accomplished and knowledgeable people and then giving them the tools they need to succeed.

“It’s extremely important to us that we invest in our front line and management staff and give them every opportunity to step up and shine as leaders,” Heather explains. “By motivating and supporting employees through growth, engagement and mentorship, we are enabling them to bring out the best in themselves and others, and ultimately provide exceptional care and services for our residents.”

Brent and Heather, along with members of peopleCare’s leadership support team, accepted the 2019 Canada’s Best Managed Companies Award on behalf of the organization in Toronto on April 17, 2019.
