BAE Systems give seal of approval
As part of Baines Simmons’ ongoing commitment to quality and client satisfaction BAE Systems were invited to audit as part of their Approved Supplier Programme. During this audit Steve Ball one of BAE Systems’ most experienced auditors and training professionals delved deep into the Baines Simmons Quality System.
Steve considered many aspects from training standards through material version control and customer feedback reactive-ness and concluded it was a very sound system and culminated in the official approval of Baines Simmons as training provider to BAE Systems.
Howard Leach, Head of Operations who holds accountability for many aspects of the quality system commented, “It is always refreshing to have such a thorough audit professionally and independently performed to give us a sound benchmark to measure our quality standards from.” He added, “We invest significantly in our World Class People programme, from induction to Continuous Professional Development, all to ensure we have the best in class consultants available for our customers, but it is always welcome to receive positive recognition that such investment is worthwhile.”
The approval signals the green light for the lasting partnership between BAE Systems and Baines Simmons to develop further, demonstrated recently when we worked with the BAE team to help revitalise their SMS programme to ensure it met their specific needs to take the SMS challenge effectively forwards for them.
