Hankinson Group, as part of the North Yorkshire and North East construction works framework community with Highways England, have successfully achieved registration to ISO44001:2017, the international standard for collaborative business relationships. The certificate was awarded by BSI.
Stephen Hankinson, Chief Executive of Hankinson Group said: “This is the first time we have been associated with 44001 and it is a great achievement for the community and it will undoubtedly help community partners maximise the value of collaborative working.
“We are fully supportive of the drive for partners to deliver solutions and the increase in contacting for outcomes.”
ISO44001 Collaborative Business Relationship Management System, which is the world’s first international standard on collaborative business relationships, replaced BS11000 in 2017.
The aim of the standard is to provide a framework to ensure collaborative relationships are effective and optimised. Collaborative relationships have been shown to deliver a wide range of benefits which enhance competitiveness and performance.
