The Benefits Of Working With An ISO Accredited Recruitment Agency

At 2020-Recruitment we genuinely want to provide an outstanding service to our Clients and Candidates, differentiating ourselves from our competitors.

How we function as a business is critical to our success and we have invested a lot of time and effort into obtaining our ISO accreditation.

We have been independently assessed and recognised and we want to outline the benefits of using an ISO accredited recruitment agency in our blog.

We are proud to be accredited for the following:

iso 9001 certified
iso 14001 certified
iso 27001 certified
iso 45001 certified

ISO:9001:2015 - Quality Management System

ISO 9001 is a universal standard for quality management systems across all sectors.

Implementing this within our business ensures our processes are efficient, consistent and enables us to constantly deliver to a high standard. Undertaking ISO was a good learning curve for us in terms of implementing systems for best practice and it also helped us identify areas of improvement as a business.

By obtaining this standard it demonstrates a high level of professionalism to Clients and Candidates that everything we do is documented and proves that all processes are in place and they must be adhered to.


ISO 27001 - Information Security

ISO 27001 is an international standard on how to manage information security.

With data breaches and cyber security becoming more frequent, data protection has become increasingly important. ISO 27001 certification demonstrates our organization has invested in the processes, technology and systems to protect our business data and to evidence your data is sufficiently protected and secure.

ISO 27001 is recognised globally and it ensures that we continually review the way we hold, manage and protect sensitive data. It also gives key specific requirements that a company must meet to keep their accreditation over time. This is extremely important in the recruitment sector where we hold a lot of information to keep it confidential and safe.


Why should you choose to work with a recruitment agency that is ISO 27001 certified?

Some agencies may claim to be ISO 27001 compliant, however, they are not ISO certified - what does this mean?

To obtain ISO 27001 certification, we needed to go through a vigorous auditing procedure. Without being audited for validation of an agency's policies and general business practice it is impossible to know whether an agency actually is compliant or not.

Ultimately, using a recruitment agency with ISO 27001 accreditation gives you some comfort that your data is being managed as safely as it possibly can be.


ISO:45001 - Occupational Health & Safety

ISO 45001 is an internationally recognised Occupational Health & Safety (OH&S) Management System Standard.

ISO 45001 certification demonstrates our commitment to the welfare of our employees, suppliers and customers. This independent assessment process confirms our organisation has implemented a structured Occupational Health and Safety management system.

Our independent assessment verified we have:

  • Implemented a robust OH&S management system
  • Conducted appropriate planning and risk assessments
  • Provided satisfactory health and safety training for employees
  • Raised employee awareness of health and safety policies
  • Established performance monitoring and continual improvement processes


ISO:14001 - Environmental

As businesses and individuals we all need to do our bit for the environment and the fight against climate change.

At 2020, even though we're a small business, its important for us to monitor the impact of this on our business so that we can identify any areas that may need improved upon.

By gaining ISO 14001 certification, we wanted to demonstrate to our Clients that our company is committed to protecting our environment.

Our independent assessment verified we:

  • Identified cost savings in our organisation
  • Improved efficiency and reduced environmental impact
  • Ensures our organisation understands and complies with environmental legislation
  • Observe and manage the environmental impact of our business
