The first Monday in September is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.

Given that the Baldrige Performance Excellence Program’s purpose is to enhance the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country through enhancing the performance and sustainability of organizations of all kinds;

that none of those organizations can achieve and sustain high-performance without the contributions of their workforce; and

that the Baldrige Performance Excellence Program is likewise dependent on so many people whose work supports our mission, including employees, volunteers, partners, and collaborators;

we wish a happy and healthful Labor Day 2020 to all those who labor for the good of the nation through their jobs, public service, community support, and specific causes. We also offer a special "Thank You!" to the many Baldrige examiners and judges preparing for virtual site visits and the final meeting of the Judges Panel (in November) to decide the Baldrige Award recipients for 2020!
