Independent engineering, IT and facilities services business , NG Bailey, has been recognised for its work in the rail sector after achieving certification to BS 11000, collaborative business relationships, from BSI, the business standards company.
BS 11000 provides a framework for collaborative business relationships, to help develop and manage interactions with other organisations.
Using an eight stage approach, the framework is designed to enable organisations, of any size and sector to apply best practice principles to its own ways of working, to get the very most out of its business relationships.
Mike Darlington, managing director of the Engineering division, said:
“Achieving BS 11000 certification means we can confidently bid for collaborative contracts, which a number of our major clients and stakeholders have advised are the way forward, as they provide the opportunity to reduce costs and lead times.
“This would not have been achieved without the hard work and commitment of our NG Bailey BS 11000 team members and the support from many functions, so I’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved.”
Carla Whyte, performance management specialist at BSI commented:
“Achieving certification to BS 11000 demonstrates NG Bailey’s commitment to building a collaborative culture within the business, providing customers with the confidence that their partnerships are beneficial to all involved.”
NG Bailey’s reputation for excellence in the rail sector is continuing to grow.
This accreditation is further testament to NG Bailey’s standing as a leading player in this field, after last year being recognised as Network Rail’s Supplier of the Year for 2013.
