The International Organisation for Standardisation, better known as ISO, is the world’s largest publisher of industry standards. This organisation is known for having developed a set of best practices for industries to follow. From quality assurance to environmental management, these standards can be applied across businesses and sectors.
One of the key benefits of achieving ISO certification is being able to ensure consistency. This might not sound very exciting, but consistency is the reason behind the success of fast-food franchises and courier companies, amongst many others.
These standards provide small and large businesses with the tools they need to identify, evaluate, and address both risks and opportunities within their operations. They are a structured way to facilitate and encourage actions for continual improvement.
