Pursuit of Excellence Award
Eggers Funeral Home Receives National Recognition for Innovative Service to Families,
Outstanding Community Outreach
In October, 2012, Eggers Funeral Home was honored with the 2012 Pursuit of Excellence® Award by the National Funeral Directors Association (NFDA) during its International Convention & Expo in Charlotte, NC. Only 166 firms from around the world received this prestigious recognition, placing Eggers Funeral Home among the top two percent of funeral service providers in the industry. Pursuit of Excellence Award recipients raise the bar on funeral service excellence by adhering to the highest ethical and professional standards and providing unsurpassed service to families and communities.
To achieve the Pursuit of Excellence Award, NFDA-member funeral homes must evaluate components of their business against standards set forth by the Pursuit of Excellence program and demonstrate proficiency in key areas of the funeral service profession. Participants are required to fulfill criteria in six categories of achievement that demonstrate commitment to: complying with state and federal regulations; providing ongoing education and professional development opportunities for staff; offering outstanding programs and resources to bereaved families; maintaining an active level of involvement within the community; participating and actively serving in the funeral service profession; and promoting funeral home services through a variety of marketing, advertising and public relations programs.
“Eggers Funeral Home’s voluntary participation in the Pursuit of Excellence program reflects a clear determination to exceed the expectations of those they serve,” said NFDA Chief Executive Officer Christine Pepper, CAE. “This prestigious recognition assures families of the high-quality, compassionate service they will receive the moment they walk through the funeral home’s front door.”
Eggers Funeral Home has participated in the program since 2004 and intends to continuously be apart of this elite program until we are inducted into the Hall of Fame of Excellent Funeral Homes.
