Staffordshire employee benefits firm, Busy Bees Benefits is celebrating after receiving the Investors in People core accreditation. The company’s new standard is also joined by the re-accreditation of ISO 9001, which certifies commitment to quality management.
Investors in People and ISO 9001 are standards developed to benchmark capabilities and highlight the small steps required to improve. To meet the Investors in People criteria, companies must evidence that they are leading, supporting and improving their staff. Similarly, to achieve ISO 9001 businesses must prove their ability to provide products and services that meet the needs of their customers and other relevant stakeholders.
Busy Bees Benefits services businesses of all sizes with salary sacrifice and lifestyle schemes. The nature of the business means employees are of the upmost importance.
“We are over the moon with our new standards,” commented Louise Wesley, operations director at Busy Bees Benefits. “As an employee benefits company it is very important that we practice what we preach. The Investors in People accreditation not only confirms our dedication to our own workforce, but signifies the importance we place upon employees as a whole.
“And as for timing – it couldn’t have been awarded to us at a better time with the continuation of our ISO 9001 standard! This helps us to ensure our services and systems are operated to the standard required by employers and employees alike.
“Both standards are very challenging to meet and they are increasingly seen as a measure of a quality employer and service provider. Our success not only reflects our own commitment, but is also an acknowledgement of the effort of everyone who works for our organisation,” she concluded.
