EFQM User Guide

Ever since the EFQM Excellence Model was first issued in 1992, people have looked at criterion 8 and thought "what do we put in there?". Since 1992, the knowledge and understanding of topics like 'Corporate Social Responsibility' and 'Sustainability' have progressed significantly. Most organisations have some sort of CSR activities. But still, people struggle with finding relevant results for criterion 8.
