Canadian Tire has been named one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies for 2013, in a list published by Deloitte, which named 50 companies in the country.

In a statement released by Canadian Tire Corporation, Limited on Tuesday, the company says it was honoured because of its “high-performing culture and innovative business strategy.”

“It’s a great honour to be recognized as one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies,” said Doug Nathanson of Canadian Tire Corporation, in the release. “We have seen a significant cultural shift in the past few years at Canadian Tire that has increased employee engagement, positively impacted financial results and heightened pride in the Canadian Tire brand – all of which is a testament to our dedicated employees and strong leadership team.”
