What is it?

EFQM recognition shows how well your organisation performs against a globally proven management framework for driving sustainable performance– The EFQM Model.

– You can achieve different levels of recognition based on your organisation’s ability to achieve a sustainable performance – from 1 Star Recognised by EFQM for Sustainable Performance to the EFQM Global Award Winner level.

– From a rapid review process to a comprehensive in-depth assessment of your business, EFQM Recognition adjusts to your needs and objectives.

EFQM Recognition Scheme

The EFQM Recognition scheme recognises the achievements of any type of organisation based on their sustainable performance level.

Any organisation can apply for the rapid and advanced Recognised by EFQM, while the EFQM Global Award recognises and celebrates the highest-performing organisations around the world.

Who is it for?

The EFQM Recognition is designed for any organisation, regardless of size, sector or location.

EFQM Recognition is accessible for any organisation that wants to go through a business review and receive strategic and operational feedback for improvement, regardless of their previous knowledge of The EFQM Model.

EFQM Recognition can be achieved within a relatively short period of time. The rapid review process can be completed within a week.

Whether you’ve just discovered EFQM or have been with us for 35 years, applying the EFQM Model shows the world that you’re on a journey of constant improvement and committed to building a more sustainable future.
