World Quality Day
According to National Today, World Quality Day is celebrated every year around the world on the second Thursday of November. The day was created to “raise quality awareness and provide support to individuals and organizations for the achievement of economic prosperity and the adoption of high-quality standards.”
The first World Quality Day took place in London in 2008.
Businesses across the globe will participate in the annual event on Thursday, November 10, 2022, through seminars, webinars, and a variety of other activities. This year’s World Quality Day 2022 focus is Quality conscience: Doing the right thing.
How You Can Celebrate World Quality Day
There are many things you and your business can do to observe World Quality Day. Here are just a few:
- Create or update your company quality policy. This policy should include your vison and mission statement and how your company plans to achieve the expectation of improving your products and process to ensure both safety and satisfaction.
- Define or revisit your company Core Values. These often align with employee quality and your overall desire for quality and satisfaction in your career, community, culture, and company.
- Consider having your business certified for quality, such as an ISO certification. Harmony is proud to have achieved our ISO 9001:2015 certification and completed subsequent surveillance audits. According to iso.org, ISO 9001 “sets out the criteria for a quality management system and is the only standard in the family that can be certified to (although this is not a requirement). This standard is based on a number of quality management principles including a strong customer focus, the motivation and implication of top management, the process approach and continual improvement. It can be used by any organization, large or small, regardless of its field of activity. In fact, there are over one million companies and organizations in over 170 countries certified to ISO 9001.”
- Share how your company checks for and ensures quality! Use your social media platforms, employee engagement tools, and more to let people know that your company is quality conscience and is doing the right thing. This not only creates employee buy-in, but also casts a positive light on your business operations.
