Only four years old, Valuing People is a principle-led framework to help you take care of your staff and demonstrate that your organisation is a great place to work.

Customer Service
Excellence Certification

It is a means to benchmark user experience against a national framework, an opportunity to develop customer service skills, and a valuable tool for those striving to be the best they can be. Customer Service Excellence is a framework of 57 elements grouped in five criteria: –

• Customer insight
• Organisational culture
• Information and access
• Delivery
• Timeliness and quality of service

These cover every aspect of customer service, including customer journey mapping, complaints, first contact resolution, data protection, social responsibility/engaging communities, innovation and much more.

Assurance Reports

SOC 1 and SOC 2 Reports: Privacy, security, integrity and confidentiality are paramount. As such, the rising demand and rapid evolution of this field sparked the introduction of ISAE 3402 and ISAE 3000 certifications.

PAS 2060: Carbon Neutrality provides a framework to help you measure, reduce and offset your impact on our climate. It will help you prove that you are truly committed to the challenge of environmental responsibility.
