Golden Leaves lands Internationally recognised business excellence accreditation!

The Golden Leaves organisation is now the ONLY independent funeral planning company operating in the sector to hold such a quality standard

In a sector that has taken significant steps over the last few years to improve and professionalise its operational activities and business practices, Golden Leaves have worked tirelessly to achieve a business excellence standard that once again highlights it’s standing in the sector as a quality and trusted brand, with impeccable pedigree.

BSI ISO:9001 is not only recognised internationally as the world’s most widely adopted Quality Business Excellence Standard and Management System but is also considered to be powerful business improvement tool.

The Golden Leaves organisation is now the only independent funeral planning company operating in the sector to hold such a quality standard, adding this to their ever growing list of quality credentials clearly demonstrates the organisations desire to deliver business operational excellence as standard.

The business is not taking too much time to celebrate and has already embarked on its next British Standards Institute accreditation – the Consumer Service Kitemark.

Barry Floyd – Golden Leaves Managing Director commented:

We are extremely proud of what the business has achieved over the last 18 months, this BSI standard being just one such accolade in a long list of outstanding achievements.

With our founder, Tony Rowland,  being awarded an MBE by Her Majesty the Queen, the company  winning a London based business award and being shortlisted as national finalist in the prestigious Amazon / Santander growing business awards, launching a new ground breaking suite of guaranteed funeral plan products and landing a renowned business quality standard – you can see that we have had busy and extremely successful year.

In addition to this, the fact that we are still experiencing continued and steady annual growth in terms of sales, when the entire market had delivered a 15% contraction in its figures, only underscores the extremely healthy position of the business.  As we move into year three of our five year strategic transition plan, we are currently delivering on all of our milestone KPI’s. There are also a number of developments and important announcements in the pipeline for the coming months.”
