Welcome to the Operational Excellence Awards

After a hugely successful inaugural event in 2021, we are delighted to announce the return of the Operational Excellence Awards in 2022.


This year we have witnessed incredible stories from all corners of the country regarding the success of Ireland’s organisations, both large and small, in optimising their processes to adapt to ever-evolving business landscape, and the role this will help to play in their long-term viability.

Construction | Education | Facilities Management | Finance & Banking | Food & Beverage | Healthcare | Hotel & Leisure | ICT | Manufacturing | MedTech | Petroleum, Chemicals, Plastics | Pharmachem | Public Sector | Retail | Logistics & Transport | Utilities | Warehousing
