Behaviour reaffirmed among Canada’s Best Managed Companies
Behaviour Interactive, Canada’s largest independent video game studio, welcomed its renewed designation today as one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies by Deloitte, calling it a tribute to the resilience, dedication and innovative spirit of its entire team.
The designation recognizes eligible Canadian-owned companies with revenues of more than $25 million that successfully combine strong, sustained financial results with technological innovation and a commitment to people. To requalify, a company must detail how they adapted their business strategy to remain successful over the past year, how they embraced innovation, and how they continued to motivate and develop talent, among other factors.
“The COVID-19 pandemic presented challenges that no modern company has ever faced and our redesignation as one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies despite those challenges speaks volumes about our team’s skill, professionalism and compassion,” said Rémi Racine, CEO and Executive Producer of Behaviour. “Over the past 12 months we maintained our commitment to the highest standards for our products and welcomed more than 220 new colleagues to the team. Everyone has gone above and beyond and this is welcome recognition for those efforts.”
“In what may be the most challenging year for Canadian businesses since the program’s inception, the 2021 Best Managed winners are a shining example of the importance of leadership, innovation, and resilience in the face of uncertainty,” said Kari Lockhart, National Co-Leader of the Canada’s Best Managed Companies program and Partner, Deloitte Private. “These companies should not only be extremely proud of this designation, but for their organizational grit, continued adaptability, and unwavering commitment to their people during a year when it was needed most.”
