Recognition is the first thing that comes to mind, but for those that understand the process it’s about improving organizational performance. Preparing an application itself can be used as a system of accountability for continual improvement. It involves work (you don’t just fill out a form), but the rewards are a thorough assessment of priorities, goals and results…making sure everyone is on the same page.
Choose from four levels of award with different requirements at each level:
- Governor’s Award for Performance Excellence
At all levels of award you’ll receive a feedback report with strengths and gaps prepared by examiners, trained professional volunteers from across Arkansas.
We can help you write your application at Applicant Training workshops. We use the Baldrige Excellence Framework, a set of 200 potential questions that set the highest benchmark for organizational excellence. Upcoming training dates for the 2018 award cycle are:
Commitment Award Training, Tuesday, December 5, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. In this workshop you will learn how to write a Commitment Award level application by assessing overall processes in the seven categories of Leadership, Strategy, Customers, Knowledge Management, Workforce, and Results.
