Leading Payroll and HR services provider IRIS FMP has just achieved re-accreditation across four key ISO disciplines, in a first test of processes following the merger of Bond Payroll Services, Bond HR & Payroll Software and IRIS FMP into one entity in August 2016.
The four ISO accreditations, ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ISO 22301, and ISO 27001, see IRIS FMP’s Human Capital Management (HCM) services and software fully compliant with the ISO International Standards. The standards ensure that products and services are safe, reliable and of good quality. For business, they are strategic tools that reduce costs by minimizing waste and errors and increasing productivity. They help business to understand the quality of suppliers in the marketplace, allowing for informed decisions on the robustness, compliance and makeup of businesses on a level playing field. In payroll no outsourced suppliers should be without all of these standards, but in particular ISO 27001 – important for the protection of critical payroll data.
Commenting on the success IRIS FMP’s CEO Justin Cottrell said: “Having ISO accreditation gives reassurance to our existing and prospective customers that we have robust systems and procedures in place to deal effectively with their payroll and HR needs both within the UK and internationally. The coming together of our three companies last August needed a robust structure and new systems to ensure we continued to delight our customers, and great people to bring it all together. This we’ve achieved. Getting these accreditations now allows us to set out our stall for 2017 based on solid foundations.”
This standard is based on a number of quality management principles including a strong customer focus, the motivation and implication of top management, the process approach and continual improvement.Using ISO 9001:2015 helps ensure that customers get consistent, good quality products and services.
This standard provides practical tools for companies and organizations of all kinds looking to manage their environmental responsibilities, focusing on environmental systems to achieve this. The ISO 14001 standard focuses on specific approaches such as audits, communications, labelling and life cycle analysis.
ISO 22301 :2012
ISO 22301:2012 specifies requirements to plan, establish, implement, operate, monitor, review, maintain and continually improve a documented management system to protect against, reduce the likelihood of occurrence, prepare for, respond to, and recover from disruptive incidents when they arise.
ISO/IEC 27001:2013 specifies the requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining and continually improving an information security management system within the context of the organization. It also includes requirements for the assessment and treatment of information security risks tailored to the needs of the organization.
