Do you want to be among the Best Managed Companies?


Best Managed Companies - 2023 edition

Companies that enrolled in the program and achieved the “Best Managed” certification for the second consecutive year

The company's performance is assessed during a two-step process:

Phase I: Online application

During this first phase, we check the eligibility of candidates using an application form that you can request here. This must be completed by 16 June 2023 at the latest.


Phase II: Support during workshops with Deloitte experts

Eligible companies are invited to prepare a second detailed application file. They will have to describe their strengths around the four pillars that form the basis of the program: strategy, talent management and innovation, CSR values and policy, governance and financial aspects. Deloitte experts accompany you throughout this step to choose the best approach to complete your file. This process makes it possible to identify areas for improving the company's performance.

An independent jury evaluates the different companies from an evaluation grid common to the global program and defined with the help of our academic partner. The jury decides on the award of the Best Managed Companies label; label that will be awarded to companies during a ceremony in autumn 2023.

Throughout the process, the information contained in the application files is treated as strictly confidential, in accordance with the Data Protection Act and Deloitte's data management and privacy policy.
