The Eildon Group has been successful in attaining the initial stage of recognition for its ‘Committed to Excellence’ model by the European Foundation for Quality Management (EFQM).

The EFQM’s aim is to share what works and nurtures a network of world-class organisations and their leaders who share a passion for business.

Selkirk-based Eildon was recently awarded a ‘Committed to Excellence Award’ at Quality Scotland’s Scottish Awards for Business Excellence.

Nile Istephan, chief executive of the Eildon Group, said: “This award recognises that the Eildon Group is an organisation that is committed to continuing its focus on business improvement and ensuring that all areas of the organisation build on its strengths to attain even higher levels of excellence throughout its entire operation. The EFQM model is a widely recognised and highly regarded business tool used by a wide range of organisations to measure themselves against, and we are delighted to have been awarded this accolade.”

Claire Ford, chief executive officer at Quality Scotland, said: “The achievement of Committed to Excellence is a clear demonstration of an organisation’s drive and desire to achieve sustainable business excellence and truly embed the concepts of excellence. Congratulations on this European level of recognition and all the hard work and effort that has gone in to achieving it.”
