Examiners are a group of quality-driven professionals who collaborate to assess the businesses and organizations that apply to the NCAfE Award Program each year. They’re tasked with developing the valuable feedback reports that applicant organizations use to streamline their processes, empower their workforces, and achieve the results they want.
Examiners come from across the state and represent all industry sectors. Most participants complete the training because they want to challenge themselves and contribute in a meaningful way to organizations where they work and the communities where they live. Serving on the NCAfE Board of Examiners is a powerful personal and professional development experience. Starting with annual training and continuing through the applicant evaluation process, networking opportunities abound. In addition, examiners are exposed to the best practices of role model companies.
Employers have found that examiner training empowers employees to apply the Baldrige framework at their own jobs, improving processes and results along the way. Applicants have also discovered that having an examiner on their team improves their own NCAfE application.
