Why do Organizations Apply?
“We applied for the Award, not with the idea of winning, but with the goal of receiving the evaluation of the Examiners. That evaluation was comprehensive, professional, and insightful. It reinforced where we were strong and provided valuable information on areas where we could improve – making it perhaps the most cost-effective, value-added business consultation available anywhere in the world today…”
-Bob Barnett, Executive Vice President, Motorola, Inc
“We do this for one simple reason. We have found it saves lives.”
-Rulon Stacey, CEO, Poudre Valley Health System

RMPEx recognizes organizations in Colorado, Montana, Nebraska, and Wyoming for their achievements in performance excellence. Applicants receive extensive feedback identifying the organization’s positive attributes and opportunities for improvement. During the annual Quest for Excellence event, RMPEx formally recognizes role-model applicants for performance excellence achievements with four levels of award participation. RMPEx represents a community of organizations and individuals dedicated to performance excellence. Those that have adopted the performance excellence framework have demonstrated increased organizational learning and development; a sound management framework; proven financial results; documented benefits to employees, customers, the community, and other stakeholders; and the ability to use the state award as a stepping stone to the Baldrige Performance Excellence Award.
RMPEx has a history of helping organizations improve. An excellent first step is to request an Introductory Awareness Workshop and to have key workforce members participate as volunteer examiners . The expertise they bring back to the organization will prove invaluable as you begin your journey to performance excellence. We also offer Application Writing Workshops to assist with your first application for an assessment and feedback report.
