The Baldrige Award was established by Congress in 1987 to enhance the competitiveness and performance of United States businesses. The award promotes excellence in organizational performance, recognizes the achievements and results of U.S. organizations, and publicizes successful performance strategies. The President of the United States presents the winner with this prestigious award.
What is my role during the site visit?
The Baldrige team will be here to get a better understanding of Heartland and they may want to talk to you! The questions are not scripted; no one knows what they may ask you. They will simply be checking to see if you have a basic understanding of concepts they feel are vital to the success of our organization. This is not a pop quiz, they simply want to know how your work (and you know your work best) contributes to the overall success of Heartland — speak from the heart.
