Industry Awards


Recognising milestones and progressive performance at all levels is an important factor in business improvement, and we are proud to have supported many of the regional and industry awards programmes operating today.

The NZ Business Excellence Foundation acknowledges the role of regional and industry specific business excellence awards as recognition of performance excellence throughout New Zealand.

Under mandate from a government working group, The Business Capability Partnership, NZ Business Excellence developed a suite of criteria aligned to the international Baldrige Excellence Framework. These three levels of criteria are described as ‘abridged’ versions of the full Baldrige Excellence Framework.

As part of this development and to further promote levels of excellence throughout NZ, the NZ Business Excellence Framework made the abridged Criteria available to all regional and sectoral award programmes in New Zealand. NZ Business Excellence Foundation encouraged those organisations to adopt the abridged Criteria as a means to ensuring their awards are aligned to best practice.

Organisations that achieve superior results from the regional and industry Business Awards are encouraged to take the next step and submit an application for the NZ Business Achievement Awards,  Or, they can take a greater leap and enter the full NZ Business Excellence awards programme.
