A new initiative has been created by BSI (British Standards Institute) to encourage collaborative engagement within the SME marketplace to seek and work together to gain industry recognised certifications.
Kier Highways has pioneered the first BS 11000 Alliance arrangement for SMEs and, as part of the team of partners working with them, Wilson and Scott have recently become certified with this Operating Standard following 6 months of challenging and rigorous conformity.
Cameron Simms, Contracts Director for Wilson and Scott says, ‘Achieving BS11000 certification is recognition of the exceptional work that all the staff within the organisation deliver on a daily basis to our customers. This certification will give our business access to a wider client base and will be invaluable to our future growth’.
Dave Wright, Executive Director for Kier Highways comments, ‘Collaboration plays a critical role in the evolving Highways England model, and certification enables partners to demonstrate their enduring commitment and capability to clients. But collaboration is also the key to enabling real innovation and efficiency on projects of scale and complexity, as we have demonstrated as a collective supply chain’.
Details of the Standard can be found on the BSI website here www.bsigroup.com/en-GB/bs-11000-collaborative-business-relationships/
