Last week, the Reut Institute won a citation by the National Award for Quality and Excellence among the Public Sector in memory of Primer Minister Yitzhak Rabin, in the category of ‘Organizations in Local Government, Society and Community.’ Among the reasons given for the citation were Reut’s unique vision and strategy.
The National Award contest for Quality and Excellence aims to promote the importance of business quality and excellent conduct among the public and the private sectors. These are measured by well known international indices: achievements in leadership for quality, focus on costumers and market needs, managing processes, focusing on human resources, knowledge management, quality infrastructures, achieving outcomes over the long term, and more.
The contest was conducted by the EFQM model of the European Foundation for Quality Management that examines how organizations deliver outcomes in light of a consolidated vision, declared objectives, leadership and organizational procedures. Moreover, the model examines the organizational learning and ability to learn lessons in line with its vision and objectives.
This prize is important to us as it reflects a vote of confidence by the public sector in the uniqueness of our organization model at Reut.
