It should come as no surprise that we at NPT Management Systems are wholeheartedly in favour of ISO 9001 certification and frequently extol the virtues of quality management systems.
We believe that a solid QMS can better any organisation by improving the structure and internal processes involved in the daily running of the business.
However, this stance isn’t reserved for companies seeking to boost profits, drive revenue and increase their bottom line. In fact, it can be just as useful for non-profit NGOs as well.
Become an ISO 9001 Certified NGO
ISO 9001 helps organisations to operate more efficiently, providing insight on how to improve processes and ultimately enhance their productive output. Meanwhile, ISO 9001 can also have a positive impact on employees, promoting leadership and company culture as a result.
What’s more, an organisation that can boast ISO 9001 accreditation will not only appear more professional to the outside world but also present a more attractive and reliable proposition to other businesses, increasing the likelihood of partnership opportunities in the future.
Pursuing ISO 9001 for Nonprofits
While accreditation is undoubtedly a big step forward for nonprofits looking to step up, ISO 9001 certification does come at a cost and some NGOs may be averse to the parting with funds in order to attain this accreditation.
However, with that being said, ISO 9001 certification for a nonprofit should be looked at more as an investment than an outgoing. Its results can not only reap rewards long after the fact in terms of streamlined efficiency, but they can also lead to new business and help secure additional funding as a result.
