What we do
Over the past year, Kelly Integrated Transport Services has been on a journey to achieve accreditation to BS11000, the British Standard providing a framework for Collaborative Business Relationships. We believe that working within formal Collaborative Relationships both supports our Corporate Objectives and will underpin a long-standing culture of partnering and collaboration within our business. The potential benefits and added value that working to this standard will bring to all our partners - Customer/Supplier, Internal/External - mean that achievement of the accreditation is a key strategic goal for Kelly Rail.
On 6 and 7 November 2012, we had our external BSI Stage One Assessment of our BS11000 Procedures, Processes and Evidence. This was a rigorous audit intended to establish the preparedness of the business for the Stage Two Assessment, and the commitment to Collaborative working within the business.
We are delighted to report that the Audit went extremely well, with no observations or non-conformances.
We are now working towards our Stage Two Audit which is planned for February 2013, and this will involve significant further work. Following the success of the first audit, we can be confident that we have both the commitment of the business and the procedures to successfully achieve accreditation. We look forward to advising you of our success at Stage Two, together with our accreditation to this important Standard. Moreover, we are excited by the prospect of working in formal collaborations with our key partners.
