Performance Excellence Workshop

November 7, 2019

OAK BROOK, Ill -- IMRF is excited to be a finalist for the 2019 Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award, the nation’s only Presidential award for performance excellence. Baldrige award recipients and finalists are expected to share their best practices with other organizations. As such, IMRF encourages our employer entities to consider undertaking their own Journeys of Excellence.

Various local units of government throughout the United States have participated in Baldrige Excellence Framework programs. They have reaped important benefits from their respective programs, and some have been recognized at the highest level as high-performing organizations that provide leading edge municipal services through operational excellence and innovation.

Consider joining these other local government entities in enhancing your own performance.

Whether your employer is new to formal process improvement strategies, or if you are already on the path to leading your organization to impressive results, you can receive important assistance from the IMEC.

IMEC is a non-profit entity charged with providing organizations throughout Illinois with the tools and techniques to create sustainable competitive futures. Through its recognition program, IMEC leverages the Baldrige Excellence Framework as a foundation for driving organizational improvement. Their program highlights best practices, strategies, and inspiration for any Illinois organization seeking performance improvement.

IMRF employers interested in improving processes and overall effectiveness are strongly encouraged to attend a new half day program offered specifically to local units of government. This free workshop will provide an introduction to the Baldrige Excellence Framework, and will show you how IMEC can assist in helping your employer achieve higher levels of performance.
