Business continuity award for Ark-H Handling
Ark-H Handling, a leading handling and fulfilment provider, has won a national award for its business continuity strategies.
It collected the top award for Business Continuity/Resilience Strategy through Partnership, part of CIR Magazine’s Business Continuity Awards, recognising business continuity programmes in partnership with external suppliers, covering overall philosophy, the use of innovation and successful implementation across the company.
Gillian Sweetman, quality manager at Ark-H, said: “We were thrilled to be shortlisted last year but we did not think we had a chance this year, up against competition from companies like Google, Securitas, The Post Office and SpecSavers amongst others.”
Ark-H Handling was among the first in its industry to achieve ISO:22301 accreditation for business continuity, working with consultants Cambridge Risk.
Raj Sudra, operations director at Ark-H: said: “Effective business continuity planning is vital for our peace of mind and that of all our stakeholders. Whilst we hope we never have to invoke the plans, the very fact that they are in place, tried, tested and approved by BSI, demonstrates that the business has the resilience to continue to deliver exemplary service even in the most challenging of situations.”
