As a leading corporate training provider, Brook Corporate Development has worked with Finance consultancy firm ABL Business to increase ISO efficiency in their workplace. The process, that has led to exceptional growth in the business performance, took advantage of funding from Higher Performing Workplace (HPW).
Higher Performing Workplaces is a project funded by the European Social Fund (ESF) and managed by the West Yorkshire Consortium of Colleges that allows eligible businesses to receive 40% ESF funding towards the cost of any HPW training.
Who Is ABL Business?
ABL Business’ goal is to make financial transactions simple and accessible for all businesses. The company, based in Cleckheaton and founded in 2013 by Joint Managing Director Alex Beardsley and her business partner Andy Redman, has benefitted from the funding from HPW to achieve outstanding business growth.
Brook Corporate Development ISO Certification Support
Brook ISO consultants in Yorkshire supported ABL with their ISO9001 certification and implementation. Through dedicated one-to-one and mentoring services, Brook has been working with ABL key decision-makers to set and implement efficient and profitable ISO processes, that have helped the team improve constantly.
Trusting Brook’s ISO consultancy services means being able to rely on professional support. Starting with an audit of all your business systems, we made sure they were aligned to ISO standards. As a leading business improvement training provider, Brook has supported many businesses, including ABL, with each step of their ISO processes, improving the team’s efficiency and communication.
Without the ISO training funding, it would have been difficult for ABL to invest in additional training. Like many other businesses, ABL has been able to get back up quickly after the pandemic and make the right decision to enhance their office and, more importantly, improve their staff morale.
Brook has provided ABL with the right opportunity to access the funding and make their budget go further, without the stress of sourcing and preparing the required paperwork.
ABL Future Plans
The help of Brook’s specialist ISO consultants has been critical for providing ABL with the most adequate means to pursue their goals.
Alex is excited about her business’ future prospects. Achieving ISO9001 in the finance sector offers a decisive advantage and creates a significant competitive edge. Alex has calculated that Brook’s support will add at least 20% to ABL income as a business and produce an overall better working environment, where all the key areas can be managed more competently and efficiently.
While maintaining a close-knit team approach, ABL plans to expand their business on a bigger scale with four new offices by the end of 2021 and five regional offices by 2023. This and many other successful strategies can be implemented with the help of constant business improvement consultancy.
