Top Company Awards 2020
ColoradoBiz celebrates the 33rd Annual Top Company winners and finalists
There might be no greater measure of a great company than the way it responds in a crisis.
So it’s no surprise that when the ColoradoBiz 33rd Annual Top Company winners and finalists found themselves thrust into the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, they stepped up to meet the moment.
Titan Robotics immediately leveraged its industrial 3D printing capabilities to produce personal protective equipment for health care workers. East Daley Capital sponsored lunches for front line staff at Sky Ridge Medical Center and Swedish Hospital and encouraged its employees and their families to write letters, make cards and draw pictures to give to residents at two nearby senior living centers.
Focus Points Family Resource Center co-founded the Denver Metro Emergency Food Network, which delivers free, nutritious meals to homebound Coloradans in need, and the Lost City Market, a pay-what-you-can farmers market to help provide healthy, affordable food to its community.
The Burns & McDonnell Foundation donated $70,000 to the United Way COVID-19 Community Response and Recovery Fund in Colorado, and Elevations Credit Union matched donations to the Elevations Community Relief Fund to support first responders and their families.
Giving back is just one of the criteria considered by the judging panel of business leaders and editors to choose winners from 44 finalists in 15 categories, carefully winnowed down by audit, tax and consulting firm RSM US. Outstanding achievement and financial performance factor in heavily as well, along with evidence that the company is not only surviving — but thriving.
That might be a tall order in the face of today’s unprecedented business challenges. But in typical Top Company fashion, technology winner Pax8 plans to put the experience to good use.
“A crisis creates a spotlight that shines on your organization and shows your strengths and weaknesses,” CEO John Street says. “We have used this as an opportunity to focus on potential areas of weakness and implement improvements, as well as to double down on the strengths that have come through.”
