Atlas Travel have been awarded a Deloitte Best Managed award for the first time this year, following a lengthy qualification and judging process in which the complete performance of a business is assessed, moving beyond finances to such areas as operational excellence, strategy, and human resource processes.

The awards event in Dublin’s Convention Centre on Friday 3rd March marked the eighth year of the Deloitte Best Managed Companies awards programme, in association with Barclays Bank Ireland. The awards were attended by over 800 people from the Irish business community.

Stephen Mc Kenna CEO of the Atlas Travel Group noted that “Atlas Travel are delighted to have picked up a Deloitte Best Managed award which recognises the contribution of all our team and the collective effort in driving change in Corporate travel management with innovative solutions and servicing concepts.” This award recognizes that contribution from everyone in the company.

The Deloitte Best Managed Companies programme, in association with Barclays Bank Ireland, promotes and recognises excellence in Irish owned and managed companies. It is the only awards scheme on the island of Ireland that considers a business’ performance from every perspective. Entrants to the programme will compete for this designation in a rigorous and independent process that evaluates the calibre of their management abilities and practices.
