BGC, has been named one of ten private Australian companies recognised for their outstanding business performance in Deloitte Australia’s 2021 Best Managed Companies awards.
The accolade identifies and celebrates privately-owned and managed companies across Australia that set the highest standards of business performance and shines a light on the power of private business as a key driver of Australia’s economy.
As one of just two WA companies in this esteemed list of 10, BGC’s resilience, operations, culture and performance has been recognised as some of the best in the country.
Against the backdrop of a turbulent 12-months in the building and construction industry, BGC has maintained an enviable market position in WA, a robust resource pool, core talents and capabilities in its people, and a safe and high performing organisation.
The program’s judges challenged and evaluated the strengths of the applicants across four key pillars: strategy; culture and commitment; capabilities and innovation; and governance and financials.
On being named among Australia’s Best Managed Companies BGC Chief Executive Officer, Daniel Cooper, said: “Our portfolio of vertically integrated businesses, and more than 60 years of ambition have given rise to an organic culture of innovation and an organisation focused on continuous improvement.”
Natalie Faull, Deloitte Private partner and Best Managed Companies program national leader, said: “Our Best Managed Companies program is about celebrating the passion, focus, dynamism and growth that Australia’s best private companies are renowned for. This year, the program has really demonstrated just how well our best managed private businesses, and that includes BGC, have refined their already well-developed strategies in response to the pandemic. They’ve certainly been tested by the COVID environment, but they’ve also stood up to the challenges, and are navigating the future with confidence.”
Deloitte Private Managing Partner, Andrew Culley, said: “The past 12-months have been incredibly challenging for the Australian economy, with significant and sustained disruption. But we have seen private businesses demonstrate resilience, agility and decisiveness as they have navigated the turbulence. We have seen these attributes in our Best Managed Company winners that have also demonstrated a meaningful commitment to their people and purpose, and a focus on clear goals and sustained success.”
Our submission highlighted the integral role of strategy and culture as the driving force to build the future for more Australia. The strategic pillars which underpin our operations; safe and high performing organisation, delivering a customer-centric value proposition, and leveraging scale and vertical integration, shone through our submission.
