Montreal and New York, NY (PRWEB) July 17, 2009 –-
Rideau Recognition Solutions has successfully passed an independent audit granting the rewards and recognition program provider the ISO 9001:2000 certification.
The certification is maintained by the International Organization for Standardization, which seeks to spread industrial and commercial standards worldwide. According to the organization, the collective of over 150 countries set out on this mission due to their commitment to standards, "Standards ensure desirable characteristics of products and services such as quality, environmental friendliness, safety, reliability, efficiency and interchangeability - and at an economical cost."
This ISO certification demands all operations be governed by explicit, well-defined procedures. Operations must be continuously monitored and meticulously recorded to guaranty consistency and quality in the end-products received by customers.
To complete this certification Rideau refined their already rigorous system of checks and balances to undoubtedly guarantee the smooth execution and delivery of Rideau's products and services.
Peter Hart, Rideau CEO, said of the certification, "We take great pride in the work we do. So, we strive to find the best, most efficient way to do our job which is essentially to provide our clients with the best and finest of reward and recognition programs. The ISO standardization of our processes is one extra step we can take to ensure this."
Rideau's Continuous Improvement Department has been overseeing the implementation. The department is in charge of directing the RideauFLO initiative, Rideau's internal name for continuous improvement. The department has implemented such quality improvement processes such as Kaizen, Kanban, 5S and Six-Sigma. All employees receive extensive training on these methods which have now become an integral part of the company's corporate culture.
The Grands Prix québécois de la qualité had also acknowledged Rideau's dedication to finding new ways of improving efficiency. Rideau was awarded the "Grande Mention" prize which recognizes private companies and public bodies that have implemented stringent quality-improvement systems involving all aspects of operations, and have achieved outstanding results. The ISO certification is a natural step for Rideau, inline with their commitment to progress.
