On Thursday 3 April, The King presented the Swedish Quality Award 2013 to Glada Hudik Upper Secondary School in Hudiksvall.

The award was presented for the 21st year running to good examples of organisations that work with systematic quality improvements. Glada Hudik Upper Secondary School in Hudiksvall was one of the recipients of the 2013 award.

The jury committee said: "The committed leadership, based on an open climate and a culture of praise, creates the ideal conditions for everyone to be involved. These values and culture permeate throughout the entire school, from management to pupils. The work of the school is highly process-oriented, and there is a structured, systematic and integrated way of working in order to keep developing and improving operations. Learning from other organisations is a natural part of this process."

The King will present the award to HSB Östergötland in Linköping, the second recipient of the 2013 Swedish Quality Award, on Thursday 10 April.
