New York hosted this year’s BID International Quality Summit Convention, where professionals and business leaders from around the world gathered to recognize excellence and success. In particular, the convention celebrated quality in business and operations. Award winners demonstrated commitment to the criteria of the QC100 TQM Model, which helps bolster customer satisfaction and cost efficiency across all areas of operation.
Among this year’s winners, Turgut Karabulut and Mehmet Elci and Veysel Akcay of Empathy Schools of Mongolia, from Mongolia, received the International Quality Summit Award in the Gold Category at the BID Quality Convention in New York. The organization has made huge strides this year as a leader not only within its sector, but also in Mongolia. The Award came as an ideal way to celebrate this past year’s successes while looking forward to putting quality first in the year to come.
Considered the world’s most important city economically and culturally, New York is the reference point for international businesses. With a population of over 8 million inhabitants within an area of 1,214 square kilometers, it is distinguished among other cosmopolitan cities as the location of the United Nations and with its stock market as the center of the global economy. It is also a cultural and entertainment center with a wealth of monuments of great historical value: the Statue of Liberty, Rockefeller Center, the Empire State Building, its museums, most notably the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA), the center of theatrical productions (Broadway) and the location of the world’s most visited media enclave- Times Square, all of which have made it the perfect city to present the B.I.D. International Quality Awards.
Turgut Karabulut and Mehmet Elci and Veysel Akcay stood before the gathering of international leaders, sharing the company’s achievements to date as well as its future ambitions and goals. Despite the difficult current global economic climate, Empathy Schools of Mongolia strives to excel in quality each day, creating a competitive advantage in its industry. For this reason, Empathy Schools of Mongolia won the 2016 BID International Quality Summit Award in New York. The Award is presented by BID to those companies and organizations from around the world that best adhere to excellence and innovation in their practices, putting quality first at all levels of organization.
