A winner this year
BRUSSELS, Oct. 24, 2013 /CNW/ - In 2013, 10 organisations were nominated
for the EFQM Excellence Awards. Out of the 10 nominees, the jury
identified one Award winner and 8 Prize winners. All the finalists are
organisations that can demonstrate a sustained level of excellence over
at least 3 years that sets them apart from their peers. To become an
EFQM Prize Winner, they must also demonstrate sustained excellence and
be considered a Role Model in a specific area. Prizes are awarded
based on the Fundamental Concepts of Excellence, which include
innovation, leadership and organisational development.
The Award is a prestigious reward only bestowed by the Jury on an
organisation demonstrating they are truly a Role Model of Excellence.
If the Jury feels that none of the applicants can clearly demonstrate
this level of Excellence, no Award is given that year. This is what
makes the Award such a prestigious reward: its bestowal isn't
mandatory. This year, the Jury decided to recognise Alpenresort Schwarz as the EFQM Award Winner for 2013.
Marc Amblard, Chief Executive Officer of EFQM, comments: "This
competition is the opportunity for everyone to learn best practices,
gain new insights from various people and organisations. But above all
the EFQM Excellence Award is the occasion to measure up against other
high maturity organisations, identify further areas for improvement and
motivate employees. Every year, participants demonstrate Excellence and
brighten up the EFQM spirit. We are delighted to recognise their great
efforts, and we are convinced they'll inspire others."
We are committed to help organisations improve performance through the
EFQM Excellence Model, a management framework used by over 30 000
organisations. To help you implement our Model, we provide training,
assessment tools and recognition. But our real talent comes from
gathering good practices and integrating those within our portfolio.
