Auditing and Compliance Services

Every business needs solid foundations to build on to be successful, similar to a house; without a solid foundation, the walls will collapse.  

The first step and the most important is ISO 9001 Quality Management System. A Quality Management System (QMS) provides the foundations to formalise all your document processes, procedures, and responsibilities for achieving quality policies and objectives for your organisation. 

The benefits of implementing a QMS includes: 

  • Defining, improving, and controlling processes, 
  • Reducing waste, 
  • Preventing mistakes, 
  • Lowering costs, 
  • Facilitating and identifying training opportunities, 
  • Engaging staff, 
  • Setting organisation-wide direction, and 
  • Communicating a readiness to produce consistent results

Integrated Management System

Provides the foundations to hold your document systems together

An Integrated Management System (IMS) provides the foundations to hold your document systems (the walls) together like glue; combining all aspects of the organisation’s systems, processes and Standards into one smart system. This combination allows a business to streamline its day to day processes effectively.

With an IMS, your management systems work together; each function aligned behind a single goal of improving the performance of the entire organisation. 

An IMS can benefit your organisation by: 

  • A point of difference from your competitors, 
  • Greater business credibility and image, 
  • Improved performance, 
  • Eliminate redundancy, 
  • Accountability, 
  • Improved risk management, 
  • Increased customer satisfaction, 
  • Improved participation of employees, 
  • Better internal communication, 
  • Greater efficiency and less waste, 
  • Create a continuous improvement culture, 
  • Optimise processes and resources, 
  • Streamlining maintenance, 
  • Facilitate decision making, 
  • Integrated audits. 

An IMS provides a clear, uniform image of your entire organisation, how they impact each other, and the associated risks. Efficiency is gained from less duplication, and it becomes easier to adopt new systems in the future.

Business Consulting

It is often said that you don’t get in shape with only one visit to the gym. Likewise, our philosophy is that real results in the pursuit of excellence require integrated management development solutions 

The challenge of team productivity is the way that the “how” of communication varies according to behavioural styles. The way communication is handled in your business can start to have a flow on effect from basic operational issues right through to senior management. 

Team Training

Core Security Group offers a selected range of training programs tailored toward delivery success. By focusing your training on managers you can a quickly asses which skills are in most need of training and development. 

The case for outsourcing consultants for your company 

While there is a clear need for internal auditors and trainers, you need to decide whether to create your own internal audit and training function or use the services of an external consultancy. 

  • You can focus your attention on your core business activities – the activities that make you money.                                                                                                                                                       
  • You will find it easier to buy in the services of an expert than it is to recruit and employ an expert, therefore creating a better return on investment for your money.                                                                                                       
  • Specialist consultancy firms can give you the range of skills that you won’t find in one person. For example, you may not only need an auditor but also a trainer, human resources expert, or risk assessment analyst.                                                                                      
  • When you employ a specialist you create a reliance on that person. When that person leaves, you suffer disruption to your business while you try to replace that expertise. This is not an issue when you outsource as each consultant works to a common process.                         
  • Employing someone with the experience and qualifications to perform an internal audit role is expensive. If you try to recruit cheaply you will get someone who is poorly qualified; this may cost you in the future. There is a clear cost-benefit argument for outsourcing.                                                                                                                                                      
  • When you outsource you ensure independence and objectivity.                                                           
  • You can monitor easily your relationship with your consultant through confidentiality and service level agreements.  

Helping to solve your management issues

Lead your team in development through ongoing change/transformation. 

  • Engage people by coaching for commitment vs. managing for compliance. 
  • Recognise another’s behavioral style and adapt to develop your leadership effectiveness.                                                                                                                                                     
  • Coach those you manage by using their own self-evaluation as the cornerstone for their continuous development.                                                                                                                                                
  • Understand some key distinctions between planning and implementing, and how to use the process of team coaching methodology to turn strategic plans into actions that deliver results.                                                                                                                                                                                           
  • Effectively lead others to model more of a coaching culture to align with business objectives.
