Many counties have established frameworks to improve customer service. These are often called “Service Excellence Frameworks” and are usually derived from Business Excellence Frameworks such as Baldrige and EFQM.

- 17 Countries with no Service Excellence initiative
- 11 Service Excellence Awards in 9 countries
- 10 initiatives were limited to certain sectors such as tourism and call centres
