I am delighted to be counted among the talented Business All-Star Accredited entrepreneurs and leaders that make up the Business All-Stars TRIBE and I look forward to my continued association with the AIBF.
Managing Director of the All-Ireland Business Foundation, Kapil Khanna, said : The accreditation, which is now held by over 500 firms, is needed by the thousands of small and medium businesses which operate to their own standards but have nothing to measure them by.
He said: “We evaluate a company’s background, trustworthiness and performance, and we speak to customers, employees and vendors. We also anonymously approach the company as a customer and report back on the experience. The business goes through at least two interviews and is scored on every part of the process against set metrics.”
The All-Ireland Business Foundation is a national body which accredits best-in-class Irish businesses as Business All-Stars. We believe best-in-class companies should be clearly identifiable so consumers can purchase with confidence.
