Simpson Booth Recognised For Professional Standards

Posted on April 07, 2015

An expanding recruitment and HR consultancy has achieved its latest endorsement by gaining recognition for its environmental processes and procedures.

Simpson Booth, a business dedicated to the energy sector and with a significant presence in Aberdeen and London, has been awarded ISO 14001:2004 accreditation.

The standard assesses an organisation's environmental management system and applies key criteria in areas relating to environmental impact and operating efficiency.

Simpson Booth, founded in 2012, obtained the quality mark after demonstrating its successful policy and implementation. It completes a hat-trick for the firm, which earned ISO 9001:2008 accreditation for its executive search and outsourcing services in 2014 and the Investors in People award in 2013.

The firm, established by experienced oil and gas industry executives Russell Stewart and Nina El-Imad, specialises in tailored outsourced recruitment solutions but also undertakes traditional executive search, contingent recruitment and provides contractors across all disciplines in the sector.

Managing director Russell Stewart said: "We are delighted to have confirmation of the award and view it as another important step in the evolution of Simpson Booth.

"We have experienced significant growth since launching the business and in the last year alone our team has increased from nine to 21. What we have been extremely conscious of is ensuring that growth is measured and that quality remains the driving force in everything we do. This latest ISO accreditation demonstrates that commitment.

"By underlining our environmental credentials we have given another positive reason for choosing Simpson Booth as a business partner."

Whilst the latest announcement has an environmental theme, last year's ISO award focused on the unique outsourcing model offered by Simpson Booth. Designed to provide a cost-effective and scalable solution, the model has gained significant interest, particularly in recent months, due to the efficiencies it provides.

Russell Stewart added: "We have been vocal in our opinion that recruitment practices and structures will evolve rapidly, in line with the changes we are seeing across the energy industry at present. Cost reduction, efficiency and innovation are among the bywords in the sector and the HR and recruitment process is part of that. Simpson Booth has a proven track record in utilising our sophisticated systems to provide a simple, scalable and clean solution for our clients."
