Seven Resourcing secure rare ISO certifications

After almost 9 months of intense auditing, we are proud to announce we have successfully received ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certifications. Due to the demanding criteria and extensive process requirements, ISO certificates are widely known as some of the world’s hardest business accreditations to acquire.

The ISO certificates are significant because they authenticate Seven Resourcing’s dedication to providing first-class recruitment and environmental sustainability.

What is the ISO?

Formed in 1947 and headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland, The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) is a non-governmental organisation that operates across 165 countries to develop and publish technical, industrial and commercial standards. The ISO’s 20-person council is now responsible for more than 20,000 standards across almost 100 different industries.

An economic expert from Investopedia, Will Kenton, states “The ISO plays an important role in facilitating world trade by providing common standards among different countries. These standards are intended to ensure that products and services are safe, reliable, and of good quality.”

ISO 9001 (Quality Management):

This certificate is based on several quality management principles and shows that Seven Resourcing demonstrate the highest standards in customer focus, the motivation and implication of top management, the process approach and continual improvement. ISO 9001 certification means Seven Resourcing’s clients and candidates are guaranteed to get consistent, quality services.

ISO 14001 (Environmental Management):

ISO 14001 certifies that Seven Resourcing is committed to environmentally friendly business practices and has quality management systems to minimise environmental impact on business operations. In simpler terms – we’re committed to protecting our planet!

At Seven Resourcing, we’re motivated to change the negative stigma that surrounds our industry. We have a vision of perfectly fusing cutting-edge innovation with first-class customer care to build the world’s best recruitment experience – so having certified systems matters to us.

When reflecting on the recent ISO triumphs, Seven Resourcing’s Director, Richard Cooke, said “We’re over the moon with becoming ISO accredited in 2 major categories. There aren’t many agencies in the UK that can say they’ve secured such a high level of certification, so it’s a credit to our wonderful team. We’re really proud of this achievement, but we see this as the start of a much bigger plan to create a truly unique recruitment service.”

We are currently working hard on securing our ISO 27001 certification, which will authenticate our ability to provide world-class information security management systems. So watch this space!
