The Human Resources Division and the Quality and Performance Assurance Division at Los Alamos National Laboratory both received Performance Excellence Recognition awards from Quality New Mexico, a non-profit organization that helps New Mexico businesses and organizations improve organizational performance.
“We want to provide the best possible human resources products and services to our employees,” Human Resources Division Leader Sue Harris said.
The New Mexico Performance Excellence Awards Program has four levels of assessment and recognition: Adobe (foundation), Piñon (commitment), Roadrunner (progress) and Zia (excellence). Human Resources received the Piñon Award.
Recipients are recognized for their focus on long-term process improvement, sustainability, efficiency and excellence.
Participants go through an extensive self-assessment process and their performance is measured against national standards.
The Laboratory’s Quality and Performance Assurance Division is responsible for developing and overseeing implementation of the Laboratory’s quality assurance and contractor assurance programs that are part of the contract between Los Alamos National Security, LLC, the National Nuclear Security Administration and the U.S. Department of Energy. The QPA Division was recognized at the Adobe level.
