EFQM in Eurostat

Committed to Excellence – 2 star award

The EFQM Excellence Model was adopted by Eurostat as a strategic management tool in 2015: it was thought that the model would help to examine ways of working and identify strengths and weaknesses of the organisation.

On 25 October 2016, Eurostat was assessed by two assessors from the European Foundation for Quality Management (EFQM). The assessors looked at a number of areas, including strategy, key results obtained by our institution, process management, sustainability of our work and also HR. Eurostat has now been awarded the "Committed to excellence" 2 Star Certificate.

The external assessors examined the following areas and attributed scores: leadership, strategy, people, partners and resources, processes, products and services, customer results, people results, society results, and business results. The assessment covered the whole organisation and over 40 members of staff were involved.

Eurostat is currently working on implementing the recommendations issued by the external assessors.
