Easi re-obtained the Gold label in recognition of retaining the Best Managed Companies label for the fifth consecutive year. Each year, the Best Managed Companies program rigorously evaluates participants against a proven global framework: a clear long-term strategy, extensive capabilities, strong commitment, and excellent financial performance.
Recognition for performance
The jury congratulated Easi on its performance over the past year. They recognize that Easi is a strong IT consultancy firm and has step by step grown and became an established and powerful player in the market. Based on the Best Managed Framework, Easi is one of the examples within the Best Managed Compagnies community. There was also praise for the efforts we put into our participatory shareholders model, which the jury found truly unique and an asset in the current war for talent.
A mirror to improve
Easi’s CEO’s Jean-François Herremans and Thomas van Eeckhout are proud that the independent jury acknowledged the ability of Easi to achieve success and a stronger market position even in times of crisis.
“We are honored to bear the gold label and remain part of the community of Belgian private companies. Being recognized as Best Managed Company five times in a row confirms that we have strong assets to steer through challenging times, support the economic growth and embrace the world of tomorrow,” says Jean-François. “This program rewards and stimulates key assets that seem even more relevant today in the midst of uncertainty. We’re challenged to think about what could disrupt our business model on the long term, what possible strategies could be, and how we can turn those into opportunities.”
Thomas van Eeckhout adds, “It’s nice to see that our strategy withstands these proposed challenges, and that we see this reflected in our strong performance. We are proud to bear the Gold label, supporting the highest standards of business performance over time. It underlines our constant ability to achieve a strong resilience, our clear vision and our social commitment year after year. But of course, you can only build a strong company with an even stronger team.” concludes Thomas Van Eeckhout.
About Best Managed Companies
In 2017 Deloitte Private launched Belgium Best Managed Companies in collaboration with Econopolis, joined by KU Leuven in 2019. The program aims to provide guidance and recognition for privately owned and managed Belgian companies that achieve excellent results.
The globally proven framework is used to assess their leadership qualities and practices in the areas of strategy, capabilities, commitment, and financial performance. Companies wishing to participate in the program must have a turnover exceeding €10 million. They must have been established for at least five years, with more than 25 full-time employees and a majority stake (> 60%) owned by a Belgian resident, person, or entity. The company’s HQ or a major decision center must be located in Belgium, and they must be fully compliant from a legal, tax, and ethical perspective.
The Best Managed Companies label is an international label denoting quality and excellence. The program was developed in 1993 in Canada and has been rolled out in the meantime over 42 countries worldwide.
