A Force for Improvement
20 years ago Quality New Mexico (QNM) established the New Mexico Quality Awards program. Since 2012 the program has a new name - New Mexico Performance Excellence Awards. Governor Susana Martinez provided a logical time for QNM to make the name change happen with Executive Order 2012-003 "Whereas, the State of New Mexico desires to be known as a 'State of Excellence" with its businesses and organizations achieving role model and best in class performance status"
To date, 721 New Mexico organizations have received formal recognition:
14 Zia Awards
211 Roadrunner Recipients
496 Piñon Recipients
New Mexico is known as a "State of Excellence" with its organizations achieving best-in-class performance.
Drive performance excellence in New Mexico organizations by providing role models, tools, knowledge, learning experiences, and best practices.
