CQI Award Winner 2020
CQI Award winner 2020 recognised by the CQI as SME Quality Organisation of the Year 2020!
Over the past four years, the Chartered Quality Institute’s (CQI) International Quality Awards (IQA) have brought quality professionals and auditors together from around the world to celebrate and highlight the achievements of those who are making significant contributions to the profession.
The CQI’s International Quality Awards shines the spotlight on businesses and individuals who are going above and beyond the call of duty. So, we’re extremely proud to tell you that Capella Associates were one of those businesses recognised by the CQI for their achievements. As a result, the business was awarded the CQI’s 2020 International Quality Award for Quality Organisation of the Year.
We were absolutely delighted to win the Chartered Quality Institute’s International Quality Awards 2020 “Quality Organisation of the Year”. Capella Associates became finalists in 2019 and considered whether we should apply in 2020, but we knew we had really good evidence and outcomes that we could share with the judges and wider quality profession.
Our award submission was based on our response to Covid-19. There were many strands to this, but the main one involved converting all our training programmes to remote delivery within a couple of weeks, while meeting ongoing and new requirements of multiple interested parties, including the Skills Funding Agency, Ofsted and the Information Commissioner’s Office.
Capella Associates specialises in quality, continuous improvement training and consultancy. We believe passionately in what we do and there’s no better way of demonstrating this than applying the principles, methods and tools ourselves, and having an award that shows how well we do it.
The awards process provides a great opportunity to reflect on what’s been achieved in your business, and engages it in a structured, teamworking activity focused on benchmarking, learning and excellence. The feedback from the judges helps both individuals and organisations to understand their strengths, weaknesses and opportunities for improvement. Being involved in the awards event itself is inspirational and whether you become a finalist or winner, you receive great recognition.
Opening ourselves to third party scrutiny provides an opportunity to reflect, learn and receive valuable feedback. It takes energy and a little bravery too. The award is for the whole team who have done, and continue to do, a fantastic job. Onwards and upwards!
