It’s not due to modesty that Musgrave Group rarely takes centre stage in these blogs. The success of this business is based on partnership. It’s through our brands that shoppers in particular see the results of that partnership — so it’s only reasonable that our partners are usually the focus of these comments.
Nevertheless it’s nice to be reminded that we are indeed doing a good job — and not just by our partners or colleagues in our own boardrooms, warehouses and backroom operations.
In this case we’re talking about the corporate finance giant Deloitte and our own Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Richard Bruton TD. The minister was guest speaker and Deloitte the driving force behind the recent ceremony in Dublin highlighting the Deloitte Best Managed Companies Awards Programme.
At the ceremony we were named as one of Ireland’s Best Managed companies. The fact that this is the only awards programme across Ireland that considers a business’ performance from every perspective makes our award (the fourth in four years) especially gratifying. But like all award winners we are only too aware that teamwork won the award. In our case that team extends beyond the Group business to stores run by our partners everywhere in Ireland, Great Britain, Northern Ireland and Spain. They are the first point of call for the customers who make this company successful, and we will never forget that.
