Eagle Still One of Canada's 50 Best Managed Companies!

I.T. Staffing Agency Named to the List for the Eighth Consecutive Year

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Dec. 13, 2006) - Eagle is pleased to announce that the company has once again requalified as one of Canada's 50 Best Managed Companies. With this current award, Eagle remains a Platinum Club member, a status the company received last year. Eagle achieved Platinum Club member status with Canada's 50 Best Managed Companies program by retaining the Best Managed designation for more than six consecutive years.

This year, Eagle was one of 84 companies to requalify for elite Platinum Club membership. There were a total of 44 new Platinum Club members for 2006.

"Companies are always judged by profitability, as they should be," says John Hughes, Partner, Private Company Services group with Deloitte, a national sponsor of the Best Managed program. "But Best Managed companies like Eagle have been singled out for qualities that promise long term growth. They've made rigorous investments in their own potential."

"This award has always been an extremely important benchmark to Eagle, because the rigor of selection ensures only quality companies qualify," said Kevin Dee, Eagle's CEO. "To be here eight years later is testament to the Eagle team, one that is a leader in our industry. We are proud to be recognized by this great program!"

The Best Managed award recognizes Canadian companies that have implemented world-class business practices and created value in innovative ways. Businesses must apply and are reviewed annually for this award. A gala will take place in Toronto on February 12, 2007 to recognize this year's awards recipients. On the same date, the Best Managed symposium will address leading-edge business issues, key to the success of today's business leaders.
