DEPARTMENT OF QUALITY AWARDS

The Department of Quality Awards under the 2005 Productivity Charter is required to work in close association with its social partners – government, employers and union representatives and assist in recommending appropriate productivity initiatives to be undertaken. In addition, the National Training & Productivity Centre is also required to carry out a number of key functions to raise productivity in the nation.

The Department of Quality Awards acknowledges that NTPC is similar to National Productivity Organisationsthe world over, who have made significant progress in every facet of their roles. The National Training & Productivity Centre also acknowledges that keeping itself abreast with changes both at a national and global level is necessary. The changes are manifold and require interventions through promotional initiatives and consultancy. This also requires the necessary human resources to execute plans that will be put into place to meet these challenges.

The major deliverables of the department are:

  • Fiji Business Excellence Awards
  • Productivity Promotion

  • Productivity Measurement
  • The National Convention on Quality
