As part of its Corporate Social Responsibility activities, election print and mail provider, Print Image Network, has an annual commitment to donate to charities. Each year, the team at Print Image Network submits suggestions for charities it would like to support. At the end of last year, Print Image Network invited customers to vote for one of three charities, via its new online voting site, as an alternative to receiving a Christmas greeting card.
The charities included in the vote were Alzheimer’s Society, Cancer Research and Help 4 Heroes. As a result of customer votes Print Image Network donated over £390 to the three charities. Charitable donations are just one part of Print Image Network’s CSR policy and make up part of its community involvement.
Being ISO 9001 and 27001:13 compliant for a number of years, Print Image Network continually strives to keep up the high standards it has in relation to its current ISO Standards.
Print Image Network’s new online voting site is one of the most secure, easy to use and visually pleasing platforms on the market. It is delivered to customers via the company’s election and engagement brand, UK Engage, which offers impartial administrative services to membership organisations, social housing providers, NHS Foundation Trusts, cooperatives and many other types of organisations.

As part of our ongoing commitment to information security and quality management, Print Image Network is pleased to announce that we have passed our annual audit for ISO 27001:2013 and ISO 9001, with zero non-conformities.
ISO 27001:2013 Information Security Management Standard provides a way of ensuring that a common set of policies, procedures and controls are in place to manage risks to information security. It provides a framework for the management of information security risks, which ensures we take into account legal and regulatory requirements.
The ISO 9001 certification is internationally recognised as the most established quality framework, focussed on increasing efficiencies, preventing errors and improving customer service.
Print Image Network takes information security and quality management very seriously. The company is committed to going above and beyond what the policies require to ensure its customers and all data is in the safest hands and that we continue to provide the best service possible.
The retention of both accreditations is crucial to Print Image Network as it continues to provide election printing for local councils, which have stringent internal procedures in relation to their supply chains.
Print Image Network’s Office Manager, Pauline Selfe, said of the audit pass.
“Print Image Network has always been committed to the security of information and customer service. Having held ISO 27001 and ISO 9001 certification for four years, we have successfully passed our annual audit, with zero non-conformities. This has helped instil a higher level of confidence with our customers. Our security frameworks are constantly evolving and developing to ensure our service mirrors that required by our customers, the audit structure ensures we are on the right path.”
As a business that is committed to our corporate social responsibility programme, we are constantly considering the broader impact of our company actions. Print Image Network ensures that we are acting responsibly in key areas including the environment, wellbeing of employees and the wider community.
This year Print Image Network asked members of staff to choose charities which were close to their hearts. Once we had all the nominations, we had a clearer idea of where charitable donations would go to for 2016. The charities which staff nominated were Cancer Research, UNICEF and Help for Heroes.
Also, as part of our activity within our local community, we support local charities and outreach programmes, including Circus Starr. Circus Starr is a not-for-profit organisation which exists to support local businesses and local children’s charities. Print Image Network purchases tickets from a unique donated ticket programme that allows thousands of children to attend free shows.
When recruiting staff, Print Image Network has always been eager to encourage diversity in the workplace, providing equal opportunities for staff regardless of gender, age marital status, sexual orientation, disability, race or religion.
The company's appraisal system provides two-way communication. As the employer, Print Image Network can review an individual's strengths and progress and construct development plans for each person and in turn, employees can have the opportunity to discuss their role and thoughts about the company in a confidential, friendly and safe environment.
Other factors that reflect our socially responsible approach include:
Print Image Network has various policies, procedures and accreditations such as ISO 9001, ISO 27001, Customer Service Excellence (CSE) and Investors in People (IIP), which help to guide us and focus our corporate social responsibility efforts with both internal and external stakeholders.

Print Image Network Ltd, election services and printing specialist, has retained the ISO 9001 certification and has been accredited against the new ISO 27001:2013 standard, demonstrating its commitment to quality and information security.
The company, which celebrated its 15th anniversary this year, is based in the North West and has a loyal customer base of local authorities which spans the length and breadth of the country.
Having held the standard since 2012, the company faced its first three-year re-assessment in August and is pleased to announce that it passed without a single ‘non-conformance’ – an achievement that only a small percentage companies assessed against the new standard actually achieve.
ISO 9001 is a Quality Management Standard which helps to create a more disciplined work environment and improve a company’s overall performance, ensuring quality is truly embedded in its culture and operations. ISO 27001:2013 for Information Security Management certification is awarded to organisations that want to assess risk and prevent information security incidents, which is crucial to suppliers that work with local government contracts. Updated in 2013, Print Image Network had to make the transition from the old ISO27001:2005 standard to new ISO27001:2013 standard.
John Foster, Managing Director of Print Image Network, said: “Achieving the re-assessment of both ISO Standards is a fantastic achievement but we are particularly proud that we did so with no non-conformances. The team at Print Image Network works extremely hard to ensure we are conforming to the policies and procedures defined by ISO 9001:2008 & ISO 27001:2013 and we are particularly impressed with Print Image Network Supervisor, Craig Poyser, who worked extremely hard to prepare for the re-assessment and ensured the transition from the old to new 27001 Certification was implemented within our business.”
The re-assessment marks the second celebration for the company, who earlier this year passed its three year re-assessment for the Customer Service Excellence Standard. Services Director, Stephen Power commented on the company’s achievements in 2015. “Print Image Network has always tried to achieve the highest standards possible, whether that’s quality-related, security-related or customer-related. We understand that in order to work with us our customers want to be confident that we operate in a way which makes them secure about our abilities as a supplier. We are really happy to have been recognised for all our hard work, most of all we want our customers to continue to see the benefits that achieving these certifications and accreditations brings.”
