Culture Of Excellence Important

A culture of excellence is an integral part of organisational DNA, says the vice-chancellor of Fiji National University, Dr Ganesh Chand.

He was speaking at the Fiji National University’s Fiji Business Excellence Awards 2014 at the Sheraton Fiji Resort last night.

Dr Chand said in a globally competitive environment, allowed businesses to differentiate themselves.

“In this crowded market place, companies that create more value in their products and services through innovation, expand their markets, and diversify into promising adjacent industries, will thrive and separate themselves from the rest.”

He said the FBEA awards were presented to organisations that have met the highest standards of organisational excellence.

“Organisations which have benefited from their business excellence journey can play an important role by helping others who are keen to do better,” he said.

To date 70 organisations have been assessed against the Fiji Business Excellence Framework and 149 awards have been distributed among these organisations in the past 15 years.

“These organisations come from a wide variety of sectors – from manufacturing, logistics, business services to hospitality, education and the public sector. While these organisations have different processes, all of them share a common vision – to become world class organisations.

“This year we had a record of 26 organisations that applied for recognition and I am proud to say that this evening 21 organisations will be recognised at different levels and categories.

“As the vice-chancellor of the Fiji National University and as the custodian of the Fiji Business Excellence Awards, I urge you all to assess your organisation’s performance against the Fiji Business Excellence Framework to identify gaps and take action for improvement and begin the journey of excellence.”
