ActionPoint, the award-winning IT Services and Software Development firm, has been named as one of Ireland’s Best Managed companies in the Deloitte Best Managed Companies Awards 2020. This is ActionPoint’s fourth consecutive 'Best Managed Award' which positions the company in the Gold Standard category. ActionPoint was recognised at a gala awards dinner at the Convention Centre Dublin on 6th March 2020.
This year, there are 130 companies featured in the Deloitte Best Managed list. Only eleven of these companies achieved the Gold Standard. Together, these companies employ 42,000 people on the island of Ireland with revenues of almost €11 billion.
Commenting on the award, ActionPoint’s CEO David Jeffreys said, “Becoming a Gold Member this year is something we are really proud of. It means that for four years in a row our business has performed strongly across the four pillars of Strategy, Capability, Commitment and Financial performance. We are proud to be an Irish company that thinks global and acts local and we recognise our team is central to this practice. Our brand culture is the foundation of our business practice. We believe that when the culture is right, strategy can be implemented with a common goal and great things can be achieved. This Award and our new Gold Standard status acknowledges the hard work of each and every one of our team."
Anya Cummins, Lead Partner for Best Managed Companies at Deloitte said:
“We are consistently impressed by the organisations that qualify and re-qualify for our Best Managed Companies Awards programme, and the contribution that this important cohort of the economy make is highlighted by the turnover and employment numbers of the winning companies. The fast pace of disruption in the current marketplace makes it critical for organisations to maintain holistic, integrated strategies and seek long-term growth opportunities. Through the Best Managed Companies Awards Programme, we are working with applicant companies to help them focus on strategies that will drive sustainable growth for them into the future. We are celebrating 130 companies that are not afraid to be challenged on their strategies - in fact want to be challenged - and that have risen to the challenge.”
