Another first for Ark-H Group - shortlist finalists for the 2014 National Business Continuity Awards

Monday August 4, 2014 at 11:44am
Maintaining its reputation for business continuity excellence has long been a passion for the Ark-H Group. In 2010 we achieved accreditation to BS25999 – which was then the brand new British standard for Business Continuity. We were very proud to have been one of the first two companies in the handling and fulfilment sector to achieve this prestigious award. In 2013 we successfully converted that accreditation to the new international standard ISO22301 – again leading the way in our field. This year we are delighted to announce that we were shortlisted for the 2014 Business Continuity Awards for Business Continuity/Resilience Strategy of the Year. The National Business Continuity Awards recognise those whose innovative strategies for disaster recovery and business continuity make them stand out in their particular field. Ark-H was the only shortlisted company in the handling and fulfilment sector. The Awards are judged on a range of criteria including the overall philosophy of client/business protection; use of innovative techniques and ideas for securing business as usual provision; the testing of the processes across the business; and the successful implementation of business continuity thinking to create a company-wide resilience culture. Fiona Strong, MD of the Ark-H Group, believes that resilience has always been inherent in the Ark-H Group ethos. “To have made it to the shortlist is a major achievement in itself. We didn’t win (always a disappointment) but that does not make us any less proud of what we have achieved. We are genuinely thrilled to have been shortlisted alongside big names such as Royal Bank of Canada, Deloitte, Hotel Chocolat, DHL Supply Chain and the like. And, just because we didn’t make it onto the podium this time around doesn’t mean we won’t be up there in the future – after all, that’s what business continuity is all about.”
