Why Choose Us?

- Accreditations

Inter County Cleaning Services Ltd has accreditations and memberships of the following organisations. These require adherence to strict codes of practice and we are subject to external audits to check compliance.

ISO 9001:2008 certification

Our quality management systems have been accredited to ISO standard for many years. They are regularly audited and have been developed to suit the changing needs of the company and its clients.

This is important in integrating our performance with client’s quality systems. A focus on quality is important in sustaining long term business success and opportunity. Certification to the internationally recognised quality management system (QMS) standard, ISO 9001 gives clear demonstration of our commitment to quality. ISO 9001 has become the international reference for quality requirements with certification, the preferred solution for over half a million organisations in 159 countries.

Its focus on processes and customer satisfaction rather than procedures means it is equally applicable to service providers as manufacturers with greater emphasis on customer satisfaction, process management and measurement, continual improvement with greater top management involvement.

There are numerous benefits associated with a certified ISO 9001 management system:

  • Improved product, process and service quality
  • Increased customer satisfaction levels
  • Improved productivity, less waste
  • May provide competitive advantage

The standard uses a core set of eight quality management principles which act as a common foundation for all standards relating to quality management:

  • customer focus
  • leadership
  • the involvement of people
  • a process approach
  • a system approach to management
  • continual improvement
  • a factual approach to decision making
  • mutually beneficial supplier relationship

SSIP

Safety Schemes in Procurement is an umbrella organisation that facilitates mutual recognition between health and safety pre-qualification schemes wherever it is practical. It embraces the core guidance on competence and training in the approved code of practice Regulations 2007.

Investors in People

Our commitment to our people directly impacts on our business performance. Investors in People understand this and by working closely with them, we are able to channel our efforts to get the most out of our employees and our business.

The path to achieving accreditation is not easy; a company has to prove its commitment to harvesting performance, recognising skill and developing individuals as well as linking all this to business performance and evaluating the outcomes.

However we are proud of our existing accreditations and are working hard to get full accreditation across the organisation. The benefits of Investors in People can be witnessed by customers and employees alike as happy people lead to great customer service which leads to satisfied customers and hopefully more business.
