triOS College; Changing the Face of Education in Canada

triOS triumphs again and is named one of Canada's Best Managed Companies for their outstanding achievement in the education sector

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - March 25, 2014) - For the fourth consecutive year, triOS College Business Technology Healthcare, has been awarded the Deloitte Best Managed Company Award and this year becomes a Best Managed Gold Standard Winner. triOS has been awarded this designation for redefining post-secondary education by listening to student and employer needs and delivering. Stuart Bentley (President) and Frank Gerencser (CEO), who founded the nine-campus Ontario College 22 years ago, could not be more pleased.

"Becoming a Gold Standard winner is a true testament to the outstanding achievements of our entire staff," Mr. Bentley says. "Our business is all about our students and their career success. Our very capable staff allow triOS to get to know our student and our employer needs more intimately. With that, we are able to deliver exactly what they want and need from an educational institution," he says.

The success of triOS rests on creating a structure that allows students to shine. Being a career college, the programs are focused on the exact skills graduates need in the workforce. The programs are shorter in duration which enables students to get back into the workforce quickly.

triOS also focusses much of their attention on identifying the needs of local employers and building programs to fulfill those needs. "The program development process is a key component of our organization," says Bentley. "We review market trends, job shortages and work with employers and governing bodies to create programs that are in demand in the marketplace," Bentley commented. Many triOS programs have achieved industry accreditation. Accreditations act as a stamp of approval from governing bodies and break down barriers of entry for graduates.

The college has implemented strategies that allow better communication with their staff through webinars, its annual company meeting and its Above & Beyond Employee Recognition program. Employees are able to submit suggestions through a trIDEA program. The ideas are reviewed at monthly executive meetings and the individuals with the top trIDEAs are rewarded.

"Over the past 21 years, Canada's Best Managed Companies program has recognized the most innovative and Best Managed Companies in Canada. We are delighted to celebrate the accomplishments of triOS College Business Technology Healthcare," said John Hughes, National Leader of Canada's Best Managed Companies and Managing Partner, Growth Enterprises, Deloitte. This prestigious national award is sponsored by Deloitte, CIBC, National Post, Queen's School of Business and MacKay CEO Forums. After three consecutive years of maintaining the Best Managed status, companies are named Gold Standard Winners. These winners have demonstrated their commitment to the program and successfully reapplied for the designation.
