Recognition is the first thing that comes to mind, but the true value is in improving organizational performance through affordable consultation from industry experts. Preparing an application itself can be used as a system of accountability for continual improvement. The process involves work—writing an application report—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. All training is at the Arkansas State Chamber of Commerce, 1200 West Capitol Avenue, Little Rock. The final training date for the 2020 award cycle is:
Tuesday – December 10, 2019 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.
Applicant Training III – Proving Success through Demonstrated Results (Commitment/Achievement/Governor’s Levels)
This workshop focuses on determining key measures, their metrics and how they are used to improve processes for greater output. This training is for Commitment, Achievement, and Governor’s Award applicants.
So, recognition is important, but especially the recognition given to your employees for a job well done when you participate in the Governor’s Quality Award Program. Sign up today!
