deloitte-best-managed-companies-gold-kainosLondon, UK – March 8th, 2012 – Thriving technology company, Kainos, has been named as a ‘Best Managed’ company in the Deloitte Best Managed Companies Awards Programme for the fourth year in a row. The company was recognised at a gala awards dinner on 2nd March 2012.

The Deloitte Best Managed Companies Awards Programme recognises companies operating at the highest levels of business performance.

This is the fourth year of the awards programme. Those companies that have been recognised as a Best Managed Company in all four years were awarded with a special ‘gold standard’ accolade. In total 16 companies achieved this success this year, including Kainos.

Kainos, a thriving technology company, with offices in Belfast, Dublin, London and Gdansk, is experiencing rapid growth at a time when many technology companies are reducing their headcounts and struggling to maintain revenues. Last autumn the company announced plans to create more than 80 new jobs.

Kainos, which celebrated 25 years in business in 2011, prides itself on attracting the best university graduates through innovative recruitment schemes and competitions.

Commenting on the award, Brendan Mooney, Kainos’s Managing Director, said, “Our people are what makes Kainos special. “We pride ourselves at being at the top of our game, innovating by applying the latest techniques and technologies to our customers’ most critical business issues. This means our employees are continually being challenged, making Kainos a place where passionate technology enthusiasts can and do thrive. Our customers see the difference in their work, and regularly cite the exceptional work ethic, commitment and skill of Kainos employees as a marked differentiator. It’s no accident that we’re growing at the rate we are.”

An independent judging panel measured company performance by looking at a broad range of criteria including strategy, capability, commitment, financials and management performance across all key functions of the business.
