A total of 35 employees of MicroSourcing, consisting of representatives of the management team and the departments, started the journey towards ISO 9001 and 27001 Certification in a whole day event at Eastwood Richmonde Hotel last October 26.
Led by Sophie Woo, Head of Operational Excellence, and advised by Peter Duran and Richard Regalado, both experienced Quality and Information Security Management consultants, the certification has been identified as one of the company's main objectives for the first half of next year. After CEO Philip Kooijman explained the importance and benefits of establishing and maintaining a good quality and information security management system (QISMS) for MicroSourcing being a fast-growing global outsourcing solutions provider that sees significant growth each year, the kick-off was followed by training and interactive workshops.
Two teams were created for this initiative: the ISO Task Force and the ISO Project Team. The former is composed of senior management who will determine the ISO Project direction, approve ISO deliverables, and assign resources to the Project. On the other hand, the ISO Project Team is composed of representatives of the company’s departments who will be responsible for documenting and auditing the company’s processes and procedures in compliance with the ISO standards. They will likewise undergo a series of training courses to have a deeper understanding of both the ISO 9001 (Quality) and ISO 27001 (Information Security) management system standards.
With full support and cooperation from the management team and employees involved in this initiative, the company aims to be ISO certified by February 2012.
