Hereworks is delighted to achieve the Award of Excellence from the All-Ireland Business Foundation. The Award of Excellence is the AIBF’s highest honour and it comes in recognition of our “outstanding contribution to future workplace technology. We have been presented with this prestigious accolade after undergoing a rigorous process that evaluated our business in the areas of trust performance and customer-centricity. The AIBF marque emphasises our commitment to the very highest standards and lets our customers know that they have made the smart choice. We would like to thank each and every one of our valued clients… without you, this would not have been possible.
Deputy Chair on the Adjudication Board Kieran Ring, said in support of the announcement: “Hereworks has achieved the All-Ireland Business Foundation’s highest honour – its award of excellence. This accolade is in recognition of the company’s outstanding contribution to future workplace technology internationally. We wish to commend Hereworks in the areas of trust, commitment, performance & customer-centricity. Hereworks is hereby included in the AIBF Register Of Irish Business Excellence for 2022.”
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.”
