TORONTO, March 8, 2018 /CNW/ - Baylis Medical Company is proud to announce that it has been named a 2018 winner of Canada's Best Managed Companies, one of the country's leading business award programs honouring excellence in Canadian-owned and managed businesses.

Established in 1993, Canada's Best Managed Companies recognizes those that demonstrate innovation in management and business practices, and sustained growth. This year, Best Managed companies were selected on the basis of having a clear strategy and vision, investment in capability and commitment to talent.

Behind Baylis Medical's success is a long-standing culture of empowering employees across all departments to take an innovative approach to their work. The company fosters an environment focused on learning, continuous improvement and employee development.

"We are thrilled to have won this designation," said Deb Douma, Director of Human Resources at Baylis Medical. "We operate under the deep-rooted belief that Baylis is at its best when our employees are at their best. This makes it all the more important to give them the tools and confidence to continually contribute to our ultimate goal: developing innovative solutions that improve the lives of people around the world."

This focus has resulted in rapid growth for Baylis Medical. The company is expanding its range of products to deliver added value to patients and physicians. It is also increasing its employee-base, including its sales team, as it expands into new and existing international markets.

"Having the in-house expertise allows us to efficiently identify issues faced by physicians and their patients, and deliver innovative solutions more rapidly. Being named one of Canada's Best Managed Companies validates our employee-centric approach to business," said Kris Shah, President of Baylis Medical.

Canada's Best Managed Companies' awardees will be honoured at the annual winners' gala taking place on April 11 in Toronto.
