Flisvos Marina in Athens recognised for quality management

Flisvos Marina in southern Athens has been recognised by European Foundation for Quality Management as a “5 - star organisation using the EFQM Model” in the Business Excellence Certification Schemes of the Institute for Sustainability & Growth (INBIAN), the exclusive EFQM National Partner in Greece and Cyprus.

This follows on the ‘Recognised for Excellence 4-star’ certification Flisvos Marina has maintained since 2018.

Flisvos Marina is the first company in Greece to implement the revised EFQM 2020 International Model – which incorporates all of the megatrends of modern management – successfully meeting all of the required assessment criteria according to the Model and achieving the outstanding performance as a ‘5-star Recognised’ organisation worldwide.

The EFQM Business Excellence Model is one of the most widely used frameworks for business excellence and sustainability in the world, serving as a model for self-evaluation by organisations and businesses regarding the criteria for an ideal management model.

Commenting on the new distinction, Stavros Katsikadis, Managing Director of LAMDA Flisvos Marina S.A., stated that “This award is practical recognition of our culture of continuous improvement in our company. We put special emphasis on sustainable development, which is a priority on our strategic agenda, creating long-term value for all stakeholders. We seek to improve the quality of our services through the application of new technologies and expansion of Corporate Social Responsibility actions, in order to meet the challenges of the future. This distinction honours us in particular, because it is an internationally recognized certification that strengthens the value and image of our company.”
