HR Seal of Excellence

The BOSS HR Seal of Excellence showcases expertise for individuals, departments, and businesses in the Business Supplies Industry, enhancing credibility both internally and externally

HR Excellence

As a member, you have the opportunity to obtain our prestigious Business Seal of Excellence accolade in three areas, Human Resources, Health and Safety and Environmental. 

To obtain the Business Seal of Excellence, your company must score a minimum of 80% on our rigorous audits in both HR and HSE practice.

This accreditation lasts for two years and demonstrates to your customers, employees, and stakeholders that your company is committed to upholding the highest standards in these critical areas.




Seal of excellence accreditations are third-party certifications that recognise businesses for meeting specific standards or demonstrating exceptional performance in a particular area. Investing in seal of excellence accreditations can provide several benefits for companies, including:

1. Enhanced Reputation

Seal of excellence accreditations can enhance a company's reputation and credibility by demonstrating that they have met rigorous standards and are committed to providing high-quality products or services.

2. Increased Customer Confidence

Accreditation can increase customer confidence in a company's products or services, as it demonstrates that the company has been independently evaluated and verified to meet certain standards.

3. Competitive Advantage

Accreditation can give a company a competitive advantage by setting them apart from their competitors, and by demonstrating that they have met or exceeded industry standards.

4. Improved Employee Morale

Accreditation can boost employee morale by providing recognition for their hard work and dedication to meeting high standards.

5. Access to New Markets

Accreditation can open up new markets and business opportunities by demonstrating that a company has met specific standards that are required for entry into those markets.

6. Improved Operational Efficiency

Accreditation can help companies identify areas for improvement in their operations, leading to increased efficiency and cost savings.

To achieve the Seal of Excellence for HR, a minimum score of 80% must be scored on the HR Healthcheck and all mandatory areas must be passed.

Members will be asked to have information prepared ready for the visit for verification purposes. Feedback will be given on the day and the company representative and the BOSS Adviser will agree the company position, and any improvement work that is needed. The HR Seal of Excellence audit will be carried out every two years and the company score must be maintained or improved during this period.

Where a company achieves a score of over 80% and passes all mandatory fields in three or more audits in any two year period, then the company will be eligible for the ultimate accolade, the BOSS Seal of Business Excellence.

There will be no cost to Platinum members, whilst Gold and Trade members will pay for any audit.
