We’re so proud to have been named one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies for the second year in a row! This year’s award is especially meaningful as it recognizes the accomplishments of our team of doctors, clinic staff and coaches across the country. This was a year that challenged us all to come together and work harder than ever before.
While we know there are a number of factors that go into the selection process, we wouldn’t have made it without our outstanding team. Our team has always been our top priority, along with the patients and communities we serve.
When the first wave of COVID-19 hit Canada, we continued to provide essential optometric services while investing in advanced technology. It was equally crucial that our team members knew they were supported, and we developed numerous initiatives to inspire and motivate our employees throughout the pandemic.
But our dedication to health and wellness didn’t end at our clinic doors. We took every opportunity to give back to Canadian communities.
Despite the difficult circumstances, our team was able to raise more than $150,000 for charitable organizations across Canada through our Enhancing Life Foundation—25 per cent more than in 2019! We also donated 1,200 prescription safety glasses to health-care workers and shared our reopening safety guidelines with the entire optometric community.
We’re humbled by this award as we emerge from such a turbulent year—one that we could never have gotten through without our incredible doctors and staff. We owe this award to each and every one of you!
