What we do
We are committed to help organisations drive improvement through the EFQM Excellence Model, a comprehensive management framework used by over 30 000 organisations in Europe. To help you implement our Model, we provide training, assessment tools and recognition for high performing organisations. But our real talent comes from gathering good practices and integrating those within our portfolio.
We at EFQM, a not-for-profit membership Foundation, aim to share what works, through case studies, online seminars, working groups, conferences and thematic events.
Sharing our member’s enthusiasm, their motivation and the results they achieve; that is what we work for.
