EFQM Global Excellence recognition is considered one of the top endorsements for process improvement and quality management in the world, akin to the Malcolm Baldridge National Quality Award in the US and the Deming Prize in Japan. 75 EFQM award assessors from 40 countries came together to recognise SDLG for its employee management processes. This is the second time SDLG has been nominated by EFQM, having previously won the Chinese Quality award.
