Business All-Star Accreditation
What is the Accreditation?
We were awarded the coveted Business All-Star Accreditation at Croke Park. It is an independently verified standard mark for businesses based on rigorous selection criteria; performance, trust and customer centricity.
Only 1 in 3.5 applicants receive the accreditation.
Staunton Henderson has only been trading for the past 10 months, but my experience spans more than the required 15 years for “Thought Leader” so we were awarded “Thought Leader in Architecture”. Such an honour!
Our modus operandi is to break down barriers to hiring an Architect so you can get the most out of your home / space. We don’t believe clients should have to take time off work to see their architect so we stay open late during the week, and until 1pm on Saturday morning. We use video conferencing and screen-sharing for client convenience. Drawings are shared on the cloud so clients can access the most up-to-date version anywhere, on a phone, on the move. Whatever it takes to make the construction journey easier and pleasant, we will do it! World class design comes as standard.
The medal and certificate were awarded at the Business All Star Ceremony in Croke Park on May 1st, 2019. Such a thrill!
What was the process?
It was a pretty rigorous process!
Some of my clients, suppliers, and staff were asked to write references about me, which the foundation followed up on!
I had to be interviewed twice by the Head of the Foundation Kieran Ring, CEO, Global Institute of Logistics, Deputy Chair of the Adjudication Panel.
A long application form, almost a mini business plan, had to be submitted and was accessed by an independent judging panel of business experts.
My website was checked thoroughly for accuracy, informativeness and clarity, that all the links worked and were correct, that useful and interesting information was shared, that it was designed well, was appealing and that it was secure.
A “secret shopper” phoned the business and accessed my responsiveness, phone manner, and helpfulness and of course, politeness!
Who is the All-Ireland Business Foundation?
The All-Ireland Business Foundation is a national body which accredits best-in-class Irish businesses as Business All-Stars. The foundation believes best-in-class companies should be clearly identifiable so consumers can purchase with confidence from All-Star accredited businesses.
The three pillars of All-Ireland Business All-Star accreditation are Performance, Trust and Customer Centricity.
Business All-Star accredited companies are progressive, indigenous Irish businesses which meet the highest standards of verified performance, trust and customer centricity. Only companies which successfully navigate the Foundation's six-step adjudication process display the Business All-Star Symbol.
The rigour of the assessment gives customers the assurance that accredited companies are genuinely outstanding. Applicants which successfully pass all its stages are officially announced as ‘All-Star accredited’ at a gold medal accreditation ceremony.
Here at Staunton Henderson we are honoured to join such a tribe. We are more motivated than ever to give excellent customer service, progressive routes to business, and extreme convenience to our clients.
Thanks for all of the continued support! And as always, get in touch should you wish to discuss any project!
