The PCG ISO 9001 scheme allows both clients and freelance businesses to operate in a more professional manner by highlighting businesses of the highest integrity. Certification should open doors previously closed to small consultancies, particularly in the growing public sector. This enables them to stand out during the routine selection processes of agencies and clients, given them the chance to demonstrate that their organisations are run effectively and honestly, and establishing rigorous business processes to deliver greater efficiency and facilitate growth.
PCG believes that ISO9001 certification through the PCG ISO 9001 scheme will help the brightest and best independent consultants to compete on a level playing field for public sector projects, and offer them an excellent opportunity to differentiate their own businesses from those of their competitors. PCG and its partners will actively promote the scheme in the wider business community to ensure maximum awareness.
