A Rich History
The Awards represent a rich history of Quality Excellence Awards in Australia dating back to the introduction of the Australian Quality Awards in 1988. Over 450 organisations have benefited from being assessed against internationally recognised criteria and by being recognised at the various Award levels.
Previous winners of the Awards were of all shapes and sizes and from a wide range of industries. Receiving recognition is a bonus, but the greatest value of entering the Awards is the comprehensive feedback report prepared by the volunteer excellence professionals who serve as Evaluators. Hundreds of applicant organisations have benefited from having strengths and opportunities for improvement identified against each Item in the ABEF.
