The Tulsa Regional Chamber has received the Oklahoma Quality Award for Commitment from the Oklahoma Quality Foundation. The award is affiliated with the prestigious Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award administered by the U.S. Department of Commerce. Oklahoma’s Quality Award program is regarded as one of the most rigorous Baldrige programs in the country.

According to a press release issued by the chamber, the program helps businesses and not-for-profit organizations identify strengths and opportunities for improvements, and helps them consider processes that will increase efficiency, engage employees, examine strategic goals and improve customer relationships and sales. The program has three tiers: Commitment, Achievement and Excellence.

“Economic development is about creating jobs,” said Heather Griswold, executive director of the Oklahoma Quality Foundation. “Our Quality Award winners include formidable organizations from business, health care and education, and they credit the quality process with helping them become stronger and more competitive. Quality organizations create quality jobs, and these have created thousands of jobs in Oklahoma.”

This is the first year the Tulsa Regional Chamber has taken part in the Oklahoma Quality Award process. 

“As a membership-based, business-driven leadership organization, we strive for nothing less than excellence in serving our members and the Tulsa regional community," said Mike Neal, president and CEO of the chamber. "Our staff began this exciting and important journey of continuous improvement to strengthen our organization from the inside out. Our staff decided from the beginning that this was not about earning a trophy; rather, it was about improving ourselves, our organization, and therefore, our community.”
