Business All-Star Accreditation is an independently verified standard mark for indigenous businesses, based on rigorous selection criteria. The Accreditation is overseen by the prestigious All-Ireland Business Foundation, whose adjudication panel is chaired by Dr Briga Hynes of the University of Limerick and Kieran Ring, CEO of the Global Institute of Logistics.
Reacting to the announcement, ACET (Active Centre of English Training) Managing Director Joelle Coade said: “The ACET team is delighted to announce that we have achieved Business All-Star Accreditation for the fourth consecutive year. We have achieved this prestigious accolade in recognition of our “outstanding contribution to quality and standards in the education sector. We are proud to display the AIBF hallmark of quality and our ongoing association with the body underlines our dedication to excellence. We would like to thank our fantastic customers and our brilliant team who have made this achievement possible.”
Deputy Chair on the Adjudication Board Kieran Ring, said in support of the announcement: “ACET (Active Centre Of English Training) has achieved AIBF Business All-Star Accreditation 2022. This accreditation is in recognition of the company’s outstanding contribution to quality and standards in the education sector. Furthermore, we wish to recognise ACET's conduct in the areas of trust, commitment, performance & customer-centricity. ACET is hereby included in the AIBF Register Of Irish Business Excellence for the fourth year in a row.”
Managing Director of the All-Ireland Business Foundation Kapil Khanna said the accreditation, which is now held by over 500 firms, is needed by the thousands of small and medium businesses which operate to their own standards but have nothing to measure them by.
He said: “We evaluate a company’s background, trustworthiness and performance, and we speak to customers, employees and vendors. We also anonymously approach the company as a customer and report back on the experience. The business goes through at least two interviews and is scored on every part of the process against set metrics.”
The All-Ireland Business Foundation (AIBF) is an autonomous national accreditation body tasked with enterprise development and the promotion of Best-in-Class in Irish business.
The Foundation actively engages and supports its network through peer dialogue, collaboration, mentoring and enterprise development activities. Companies are qualified for accreditation by completing an enterprise audit and are identified by their use of the AIBF’s Business All-Star Marque.
