Best Managed Press Release 2021 Gold Standard Winner


Nightingale Achieves Gold Standard with Canada’s Best Managed Companies

Nightingale has been named one of Canada’s Top Best Managed Companies for a fourth consecutive year as designated by Deloitte, in partnership with CIBC and Queen’s School of Business. With this achievement, Nightingale is honored to have reached a new award level within the Best Managed Program, the title of Gold Standard Winner.

Now in its 28th year, this national business awards program recognizes and honors excellence in private Canadian-owned companies. Each year entrepreneurial companies undergo a rigorous application process and must pass several rounds of examination before receiving the Best Managed title. The fourth year of the Best Managed program is even more stringent to ensure that only the most dedicated and qualified companies receive the coveted Gold Standard designation.

This year’s application would not have been an accurate assessment if it did not address Covid and give companies the chance to express how they faced fluctuating market conditions. It highlighted how Best Managed Companies are those that are capable of seamlessly adapting and pivoting their strategy in order to thrive in uncertain times. The application showcased Best Managed companies’ ability to set industry leading standards for success no matter the corporate landscape.

The application challenged Nightingale to reflect on its corporate strategy, capabilities and resources, innovative processes, company culture, commitment to employees and customers and an examination of company controls and financials.

Exceptional applicants not only created a strategic plan that allowed for normal operation and growth during the pandemic but was innovative enough to position companies on a forward trajectory to easily realize future growth opportunities.

The Best Managed competition is a demanding and extremely rewarding process, it is an esteemed program which Nightingale is extremely proud to be part of. Nightingale is elated to maintain our Best Managed Title and receive their fourth year Gold Standard status.
