Nightingale was a winner of Canada’s Best Managed Companies program in 2018 and requalified in 2023 to maintain its status as a Best Managed Gold Standard company. Celebrating its 30th anniversary, Canada’s Best Managed Companies program awards excellence in private Canadian-owned companies. To attain the designation, companies are evaluated on their leadership in the areas of strategy, culture and commitment, capabilities, innovation, governance and financial performance.

Applicants are evaluated by an independent panel of judges with representation from program sponsors and special guests.

Over the past year Nightingale Corporation has utilized its strategy to ensure supply chain channels were properly managed, allowing customer deliverables to continuously be met. With the implementation of Quick Ship Programs Nightingale was able to serve its customers quickly and efficiently.

The 2023 cohort of Best Managed companies shares common themes such as having a people-centric culture, targeting effective ESG strategies, and accelerating operational digitization.
