Business All-Star Accreditation is an independently verified standard mark for indigenous businesses, based on rigorous selection criteria.
The Accreditation is overseen by the prestigious All-Ireland Business Foundation, whose adjudication panel is chaired by Dr Briga Hynes of the University of Limerick and Kieran Ring, CEO of the Global Institute of Logistics.
Reacting to the announcement, ISS Ireland MD Eric Doyle said:
“I’m delighted and honoured on behalf of myself, my family and all the members of ISS. It’s a great honour and while I’m lucky to accept it, I’m taking it on behalf of all our team and our senior management. This reflects highly on the great work that they do.”
Deputy Chair of the Adjudication Board Kieran Ring praised Eric for his business achievements when accrediting him as All-Star Managing Director of the Year 2023:
“The accreditation is reserved for executives that demonstrate excellence in their role as a Managing Director.”
“In designating Eric Doyle, MD of ISS Ireland, as our recipient, we acknowledge his leadership skills in driving our local economy forward and maintaining the highest standards in facility services. Eric is hereby included in The AIBF Register of Irish Business Excellence (TRIBE).”
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 (AIBF) is an autonomous national accreditation body tasked with enterprise development and the promotion of Best-in-Class in Irish business.
The Foundation actively engages and supports its network through peer dialogue, collaboration, mentoring and enterprise development activities. Companies are qualified for accreditation by completing an enterprise audit and are identified by their use of the AIBF’s Business All-Star Marque.
