The Global Benchmarking Network (GBN) launched the Global Benchmarking Award in 2012 to recognise those organisations that had integrated benchmarking into their organisation’s strategy and processes in order to continuously learn and innovate. The award encourages organisations to share how benchmarking (comparing and learning from others) is an integral part of their improvement and innovation drive.
The GBN’s Global Benchmarking Award was designed by Benchmarking Partnerships (Australia), BestPrax Club (India) and COER (New Zealand) on behalf of the GBN. It was first trialled in India in 2010 and first awarded in New Zealand in December, 2012. COER organises the Global Benchmarking Award each year on behalf of the GBN.
