Best Company

QMS International had a new set of company values ready to roll out last year, and wasn't about to let the coronavirus get in the way.

The values and behaviours were agreed after a series of workshops involving staff from each area of QMS, which is one of the country's leading ISO certification and quality management specialists.

Despite the challenges of the pandemic, the launch went ahead with a #values campaign that included merchandise for staff. This year's employee awards will be driven by demonstrations of the values, which are: #care and support, #do the right thing, #forward thinking and #own it.

QMS began life in 1993, when the founders pioneered a service that combined ISO consultancy and certification in a single, affordable process. It is now one of the UK's leading ISO certification bodies, having helped clients to put in place more than 30,000 management systems.

The Norwich-based company has an annual bonus scheme. Gift vouchers are presented to winners in the quarterly employee awards scheme, and there is also extra time off for winners in the annual awards.

Colleagues are encouraged to learn from each other, share knowledge and spend time in other teams to increase understanding of the business as a whole. Where appropriate, there is job shadowing.

Featured Workplace Factors

My Manager

84% of staff agreed

My manager cares about how satisfied I am in my job

The firm's HR manager is also a qualified Insights practitioner and ran sessions with all teams, enabling colleagues to understand their profiles and behaviours and recognise traits in others. To further assist development, QMS offers financial support and study time for those wishing to take a professional qualification.

My Company

83% of staff agreed

I love working for this organisation

QMS introduced an expenses allowance for staff to spend on a work chair after they had to switch to working from home. Wellbeing advice and support came via Motivational Monday articles on the intranet. Jostle proved a good way of sharing experiences and tips, particularly for field-based staff.

My Team

88% of staff agreed

I feel a strong sense of family in my team

The usual fun team interaction continued remotely during the pandemic with challenges such as an incognito competition, which involved guessing the identity of a colleague photographed in disguise. Lip sync battle was another favourite. Brew Time brought staff together for a chat and a cuppa.

Quote from the top...
“We’re incredibly proud to have achieved a 1* Best Companies accreditation and it’s testament to the hard work everyone puts in towards creating, improving and maintaining our great culture at QMS. Despite the last year and challenges of lockdown, we have achieved a significant increase in our BCI score and engagement levels and this evidences how we put culture and engagement at the top of the agenda and at the heart of everything we do at QMS.”

Matt Stacey, MD - QMS International
