Deputy Chair on the Adjudication Board Kieran Ring, said in support of the announcement: “St. Molaise Preschool and Afterschool has achieved AIBF Business All-Star Accreditation 2022. This Accreditation is in recognition of the company’s outstanding contribution to quality and standards in the education sector. The AIBF also wishes to recognise St. Molaise Preschool and Afterschool’s conduct in the areas of trust, commitment, performance & customer-centricity. St. Molaise Preschool and Afterschool is hereby included in the AIBF Register Of Irish Business Excellence.”

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.
