Spectrum Care wins unprecedented silver in Business Excellence awards
The New Zealand Business Excellence Foundation presented a prestigious silver award to disability support provider Spectrum Care at their annual awards ceremony, held on Friday 26 November 2010.
In receiving this internationally recognised accolade, Spectrum Care has become the only health and disability sector organisation in New Zealand and one of only 14 organisations nationally to receive a silver or gold award since the Business Excellence awards commenced in 1997.
The award places Spectrum Care in a leadership position within the health and disability sector, and acknowledges the significant progress the organisation has made to becoming truly world-class.
“We continue to aim high and improve ever further in our capacity to achieve our Vision of ‘People with disabilities living great lives’,” noted Chief Executive Chris Harris. “In fact, our next milestone will be to achieve a gold award, the world’s highest-possible quality award for business excellence.
“In working towards this award, we’ve made enormous progress in terms of Outcomes, Active Support, training, family engagement and our collaborative approach to sector partnerships. It’s also become clear that the lives of the people we serve have changed for the better as we work towards greater community inclusion and genuine person-centredness.
“This award is a truly significant result for the people we support, their families, our funders and the disability sector as a whole.”
