Since 1930, Mayer has grown and prospered by supporting a high standard for Continuous Quality Improvement. Quality assurance isn’t simply a motto – for Mayer Associates, it’s a daily commitment to ensuring that customer and supplier expectations are met and exceeded. Mayer provides several resources ensure its products and services are of the highest quality.
Since 1989, the Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI) process has reflected Mayer’s commitment to providing standard-setting products, services and support to our customers, Associates and suppliers, and the CQI process is key to keeping our promise.
Our commitment to quality is well-established. Along with our CQI process, we have learned from leading quality assurance experts – in fact, we are fortunate to have an in-house expert in Charles Collat, Sr. who has served as Director of Quality for the company.
Today, Mayer ensures that our Associates share our commitment to quality by requiring each person to participate in at least 16 hours of assurance training. These skills continually are sharpened by our Associates’ involvement in the Natural Quality Teams, Quality Improvement Projects or company-wide Strategic Quality Initiatives. Associates have
the opportunity to proactively support our processes by originating quality improvement project proposals and participating in mission development and guidance discussions that can result in institutional changes which support our commitment to quality assurance.
Additionally, Mayer utilizes the criteria of the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award to guide its ongoing assessment and to benchmark its continuous improvement efforts. We are also in a multi-year partnership with Accelerated Improvement Mentoring, Inc., who serves as a consultant and additional resource in our processes.
Our quality assurance standards can be broken out to our promises to customers, our internal company standard and our commitment to suppliers.
