4 most widely used ISO standards
As we announced, today we are dealing with ISO standards.
ISO is an acronym for the International Organization for Standardization, which develops standards to ensure the safety, efficiency, and quality of products, services, and production processes.
It is known that successful companies care about the quality of their products and/or services, and therefore to their customers. Nowadays, quality plays a significant role in the market, and ISO standards indicate that a specific company can produce a quality product or provide a quality service.
In the previous article, we explained in detail what is achieved by standardizing the process, while in this, we will deal with the answers to the questions of why ISO standards are essential and what are the key standards in our territory.
Importance of ISO standards
The ISO standards system is based on the principles that enable the company to establish a quality relationship both with customers and between employees.
Namely, companies largely depend on their customers. Therefore, the focus should be on their requirements and needs, meeting them, and even exceeding them.
Also, the attitude of the company’s management towards employees is essential. Their task is to influence employees and lead them by their example while also creating such a work atmosphere in which everyone would be motivated to work and jointly achieve the organization’s goals. With such an attitude, employees are encouraged and inspired to accept responsibility for solving potential problems and improving the process.
