How Accreditations Can Help You Win Bigger and Better Contracts

“Accreditation is the process in which certification of competency, authority, or credibility is presented.” The question is, how can this help you win bigger and better contracts?

Invest in yourself

Yes, getting accredited is an investment to begin with, but trust us when we say, the return of investment is much greater!

How? Because accreditations such as CHAS, SMAS, and SafeContractor, are an internationally recognised stamp of approval which show your clients that you are qualified to do what you say.

You need to get accredited to win bigger and better contracts

The bigger and better clients are the contracts that are going to require these accreditations; they will be looking for a professional who they can be sure can get the job done safely and of a high-quality without any issues.

The only way to reassure them of this is to get accredited:

  • Accreditations put you above the rest – immediately, being accredited gives you a competitive advantage over other contractors. This sets you apart and makes you stand out to those bigger and better contracts.
  • Accreditations make a promise of quality – how do clients know that you’ll do a great job? There’s nothing more reassuring than accreditations that show you meet appropriate quality standards.
  • Accreditations demonstrate your commitment to compliance – anyone can claim to be qualified and credible but accreditations are proof. Great clients will only work with credible and responsible businesses so you need to be able to demonstrate that you are.
  • Accreditations build trust with your clients – accreditations establish trust immediately, giving your client peace of mind that their project is in good hands and that you will deliver the results that they want.
  • Accreditations highlight your long-term commitment to health and safety – not only do accreditations show you have met certain standards, but they also demonstrate your ongoing commitment to quality and compliance. Maintaining high standards takes consistent policy implementation, ongoing examination and evaluation, all of which are very important to big clients.
