MVIS achieves Gold membership with Industry platforms

The last year has been a strange one for everyone, with many businesses forcing to close temporarily or in some cases, permanently, as the economy shifts to new ways of working, new priorities and a new world compared to the one we operated in until early 2020.

Despite this, MVIS have remained operational throughout the whole pandemic, using our solutions and service to help keep the nation safe with safety messaging and important notices. At the same time, we have also been hard at work in the background, looking to see if there is room for improvement of the service we provide to our customers in a variety of ways, from upskilling our team to achieving the very best in industry standard raising accreditations

One of the achievements we have earned recently is Gold Status in the Constructionline programme, which offers a platform for thousands of buyers in the construction industry that enforces an ethos of trust and quality amongst its members. Validating all members, the Constructionline platform is used by buyers to quickly find suppliers that will enable them to complete a whole range of projects in the industry by providing them with a pool of high quality suppliers that they can engage with confidently.

Achieving Gold status on this platform isn’t for everyone, with Gold membership requiring further validation checks using an enhanced prequalification questionnaire that goes beyond those involved in silver. Our credentials were assessed for environmental management, quality management, equal opportunities, modern slavery act adherence and anti-bribery and corruption policies.

Whilst achieving Gold status may seem like a high climb for many businesses, for MVIS, it was very achievable, having already worked toward these areas for various other certifications and of course, our ISO accreditations.

Not stopping there, we have also achieved Gold status in the Supply Chain Sustainability School, a platform that offers businesses extensive training around various sustainability, offsite, digital, procurement, lean and management topics relevant to the business environment.

With a strong focus on CPD through training workshops, networking events and e-learning modules, achieving Gold status is found through completing or using a number of these tools across the company to ensure that the skills taught within the programmes are taken on by companies as well as filtered throughout the business.

As it has helped us to think about our business from top to bottom, the policies and systems affected by the work we have done with the Supply Chain Sustainability School will, in turn, affect the whole organisation in terms of helping us towards our goal a more sustainability focussed business, with the added benefits of cost savings, reinforcing our reputation and increased safety for our team, our customers and the general public.

The more we work with the School, the more it trains our team to think in certain ways.

As time goes on and we take on more accreditations and memberships with these highly valuable platforms, we are building more than just our reputation. We are changing the way we operate at an organisational level that affects how we see and approach things as a business and as individuals in an ever evolving world.

We look forward to working on new opportunities to broaden our understanding in these so we can work towards providing a better service for our customers and a better world for everyone.
