On November 15, 2018, the Fédération québécoise des massothérapeutes received a mention in the non-profit organization and association category at the 2018 edition of the Prix performance Québec.
CONTINUING A TRADITION OF EXCELLENCE SINCE 1979
The FQM’s candidacy for the Prix performance Québec is part of the continuity of its quality approach, which began in 2014 with the Bureau de normalisation du Québec, and the following year with the ISO 9001:2008 certification (ISO 9001:2015 in 2018).
The story began in January 2018, when the FQM registered for the Prix performance Québec. Since then, here’s how far we’ve come:
October 2017: Registration of the FQM for the Prix performance Québec
December 2017 to March 2018: Drafting of the application file
March 2018: Submission of the application file
April to June 2018: Analysis of the application by a team of Prix performance Québec evaluators
June 2018: Visit to the FQM by the team of evaluators to examine certain elements of the application in greater detail and finalise the evaluation
November 2018: The FQM receives a mention at the awards ceremony and an organizational diagnosis that will enable it to make its continuous improvement process even more effective
THE QUEBEC PERFORMANCE AWARD IN A FEW WORDS…
The Prix performance Québec is the highest distinction awarded by the Quebec government to companies and public organizations that stand out for the quality of their management and their overall performance.
Comparable to other internationally renowned awards such as the Malcolm Balbridge National Quality Award in the United States or the European Quality Award, the Prix performance Québec rewards quality management and the deployment of best business practices in companies.
The Prix performance Québec are managed by the Mouvement québécois de la qualité in conjunction with the Ministère de l’Économie et de l’Innovation du Québec.
