Spring usually heralds the season of change: leaves begin to return to the trees, lambs are born, and the days get longer while the nights get shorter. However, here at The Better Home Company, we’ve recently been recognised for staying the same.
Now, you may think this is a bad thing, as change means progress, but in this instance, keeping the status quo is a success.
You see, The Better Home Company was founded on the basis of bringing transparency, integrity and consistent high standards into the Home Services sector, and we’ve received recognition for that once again.
Obviously we have 100s of 5 star reviews from satisfied customers, we have our 12-month "No Quibble" guarantee, and we’re Which recommended, but these are stories for another day. What we want to share with you today is that we are now a proud member of the Good Business Charter.
What is the Good Business Charter?
The Good Business Charter (GBC) is an accreditation which recognises responsible business practices. And in order to get this accreditation an organisation must meet all of the GBC’s 10 components. As such, not every organisation will be able to qualify for GBC status. Which means we’re in elite company with the likes of, TSB, Unilever, and London City Airport!
Effectively, being accredited by the GBC is a signpost to customers that an organisation is ethical in their behaviour and values.
What are the 10 Components an organisation must meet to get GBC Accreditation?
Those 10 components are best shown in this picture below. Basically, everything you’d want from how an organisation should behave.
Why have we signed up to be GBC accredited?
That’s actually really simple.
All of our beliefs of how to conduct ourselves are in-line with the GBC’s. And all of our foundations are built on a dedication to always operating in a responsible and respectable manner. So it was an easy decision for us to commit publicly to the high ethical standards of the GBC. Because when an independent not-for-profit organisation supported by the TUC wants to recognise ethical companies, there’s only one thing on our minds: apply to be recognised.
What does this mean for you?
Well, dear customer, it actually means a lot to you. So let me count the ways this benefits you.
Firstly, you know we’re an ethical employer. And while that might not mean too much for you in the grand scheme of things, it does mean that you’re much more likely to get a quality job done through ourselves than through someone else.
That’s because study after study has shown that when employees are treated well they produce better quality work. So that means when you hire us for a job, you can be confident it’ll be done to the highest quality at the first attempt.
Secondly, you can be confident of our commitment to you (if this was ever in any doubt). As mentioned above, we’re Which Recommended, have 100s of 5 star reviews, and offer a “No-Quibble” 12-month guarantee, but we’ve now publicly pledged our commitment to our customers - and been recognised for it.
We pride ourselves on doing a great job for you, and we want you to know it.
Finally, in this time of the Climate Crisis, we have publicly committed to a policy of limiting our impact on the environment.
Again, like with our commitment to our customers, this commitment to the environment was already in place, but we’ve publicly reaffirmed it and been recognised for it. In fact, we’re a Climate Positive organisation. So you can be sure that choosing us for your work around the home won’t cost the earth. And it won’t cost your children the earth either.
We’re proud to be an ethical organisation with commitments to the things that really matter. We’re committed to our staff, to our suppliers, to the environment, and to our customers. We’re committed to doing the best job for all parties concerned. And we want everyone to know it.
Moreover, we’re delighted to have been recognised for it. Especially, as we’re in such elite company.
It’s just one more reason to choose us for your projects at home. So contact us now for a free no-obligation quote. We offer extremely competitive prices as well as courteous and professional workers who'll do a great job to your full satisfaction and clean up after themselves too.
