Anne Corder Recruitment achieves ISO accreditation for 18th year running

Independent Peterborough agency Anne Corder Recruitment (ACR) has achieved ISO accreditation for the 18th consecutive year.

The company, based in Park Road, passed its quality audit, with the inspector noting that ‘the management system sampled during this audit continues to be of benefit to the business.’

The ISO (International Organisation for Standardisation) 9001:2008 accreditation is recognised as the only international indicator of quality.

This year’s inspection was subject to a more in-depth auditing procedure, which happens every four years alongside the annual reviews.

The achievement of this award year-on-year exemplifies ACR as an efficient and cost effective business for staff, clients and candidates.

Inspectors spend a day reviewing a company’s methods and systems, speaking to staff, investigating procedures and schedules before deciding whether the required standards have been achieved.

The report made special reference to ACR’s commitment to its award-winning eco credentials through the maintenance of a paperless office. It also highlighted the company’s comprehensive and efficient methods in obtaining customer feedback.

Recruitment partner Karen Dykes, who oversees the agency’s compliance procedures, said: “The renewal of our accreditation for the 18th year in a row reflects ACR’s ethos to aim for best practice in all aspects of the business. The continuous achievement of this standard demonstrates to our clients and candidates the high level of service they can expect from us.”
