Why would an organisation get certified? Getting certified to ISO standards for Quality, Safety or Environment is an important – and often necessary – step for businesses entering the next phase of growth.
In certain industries, including construction, engineering, manufacturing, mining, health and technology, ISO certification is especially critical for demonstrating that a business meets the global benchmark for the relevant standard.
While, in effect, organisations seek ISO certification to become more effective and efficient, in reality, many organisations need to get accreditation in order to bid for work, win tenders and expand.
No matter what the motivation, getting certified to ISO 9001:2015, ISO 45001:2018 and ISO 14001:2015 will not only aid in growth, expansion, new clients, and increased revenue – if implemented well, your business can also increase efficiency, staff and customer satisfaction, communication, and processes.
Even if certification starts as a tick in the box to win or tender for work, it can improve your business across the board, with no additional effort.
The following benefits provide 5 reasons to get ISO certified, although the list of tangible and intangible benefits once you have achieved certification will undoubtedly be greater.
