EFQM Global Award
The EFQM Global Award
The objective of the EFQM Global Award is to recognise outstanding organisations worldwide, whether private, public or not-for-profit. These organisations demonstrate an indisputable track record of success in turning strategy into action and the continuous improvement of their performance. The EFQM Global Award is supported by one of the most challenging assessment processes. To assess organisations and identify good practices, an international team of 4 to 8 experienced professionals, all trained in EFQM’s rigorous assessment process, spend one week on-site. They review documents and interview individuals and teams to analyse how effectively the organisation performs in the delivery of its strategic objectives. The Assessors’ feedback report provides a wealth of value-adding input to help the organisation improve at a strategic level. The report is then presented to an independent Jury that decides the level of recognition for each applicant organisation. Throughout the process, the interaction with the assessment team enables an organisation to gain expert insights to tackle its future challenges.
EFQM Global Award Assessors

They contribute their expertise and their time to perform the EFQM assessments, including our recognition scheme’s pinnacle, the EFQM Global Award – one of the most challenging and robust business assessments in the world.
