Recognizing Quality Professionals in Manufacturing

Quality isn't a department, it's a culture. Developing a culture of quality within a manufacturing organization requires individuals with a passion and commitment to quality that others can't help but be inspired by. Running a high-performing layered process audit program, Gemba Walks, 5S and other process audits are just some of the ways to develop a culture of quality across the plant so everyone believes that quality is job #1.

Often quality professionals don't get much attention until something goes wrong: a rise in defects, scrap or re-work, a major quality escape or customer complaint. The Champions for Quality Awards aim to recognize the people who are behind building a culture of quality and building long-lasting quality processes which positively impact the bottom line.

Now in its 4th year, The Champions for Quality Awards combine public award nominations from manufacturers around the world with insight-driven awards from the EASE plant floor audit platform. The awards recognize individuals, specific manufacturing facilities and entire organizations across a range of categories.
