     Qulaity Management System

    It is the company policy to provide a high quality service that fully meets customer requirements.  There is therefore a need to accurately establish customer requirements and to respond to them quickly and effectively.
     
    To implement this policy a formal documented system of quality assurance is operated.  The system has been developed to comply with BS EN ISO9001:2008.  This includes a commitment to continual improvement of the effectiveness of the system.  Quality objectives are set and reviewed to implement these improvements.
     
    The quality policy involves all employees, and the principles and objectives will be communicated as widely as possible.  Practical assistance and training will be given, where necessary, to ensure relevant knowledge and experience are acquired for successful implementation of this policy.

  • IIP Bronze

    Investors in People

     Bronze Award

    In what is thought to be a first for the British shooting sector, Edgar Brothers has achieved bronze Investors in People (IIP) status.
     
    IIP is the national standard which sets out a level of good practice for the development of people to achieve business goals. It provides a baseline of good management practice which can be used to help with planning, enhance employee engagement and improve management effectiveness.

    Edgar Brothers’ HR Assistant, Thea Edgar: “Edgar Brothers chose to embark on the IIP accreditation after a period of substantial growth and the introduction of a Human Resources department two years ago. We felt it was time to benchmark ourselves against the IIP standard and highlight any areas for further development.”

    “According to IIP, Edgar Brothers is the first in the shooting industry to be awarded this accreditation. It is an incredible achievement for the business as it demonstrates that we have a strong and dynamic leadership team who are committed to good practice. It also shows that we display a high level of employee involvement which is a critical success factor for business growth. And lastly, it highlights that we have a motivated workforce who understand the business goals and the role that they play in helping to achieve them.”
