An EFQM Recognised for Excellence assessment provides learning for everyone involved in the process. This starts from preparing the initial input for the assessors, through all the interviews conducted on-site and in the final feedback report the Assessors produce.
A team of 3 to 5 assessors will spend several days on-site, interviewing people from all levels of the organisation. These Assessors are trained by EFQM but come from other Member Organisations, giving you a "peer to peer" assessment. We deliberately select Assessors from a range of different backgrounds to maximise the learning opportunities.
The size of the team and the amount of time they spend on-site varies depending on the size and complexity of your organisation. Past applicants have ranged from 10 people in a single site to 80,000 people, working across 5 continents.
The feedback report is normally around 20 pages, giving you valuable insights into your current strengths and potential for improvement.
