GPW Recruitment Achieves New Standard in Quality

GPW Recruitment has improved their quality standards once again to become certified as meeting the international Quality Management Standard ISO 9001:2015.

The independent assessment was conducted by the leading Certification Body, NQA, and achieving the 2015 standard re-establishes GPW Recruitment as a driving force in its field for customer service and quality in its services.

ISO-9001 Quality Management Certification

The ISO9001 standard requires organisations to demonstrate that they have quality management systems in place that ensure consistency and improvement, assuring clients of the highest levels of performance and satisfaction. Certified organisations are committed to continuous improvement and are assessed annually to ensure progress is being maintained.

The new 2015 standard has evolved to meet the needs of a more technology-driven world with increasingly complex global supply chains. Focusing more on managing processes and less on documentation, the new accreditation covers many significant changes including:

  • More explicit expectations for proactive risk assessment and avoidance
  • A requirement for top management to become fully accountable for the Quality Management System, and
  • A stronger focus on the provision of resources to monitor and measure processes

Graham Worsley, Chairman of GPW Recruitment commented, “We are delighted to have become certified to this improved quality standard.”
