Image Source Receives Accreditation, Honors

Posted on 10/26/2007 by Julia Dudnik Stern | Printable Version | Comments (0)

The London-based royalty-free producer Image Source has had a good week. It has surpassed 100,000 images in its library, was accredited with the international quality standard ISO 9001 and was the only archive to be featured by Best Companies Guide 2007.

The International Organization for Standardization is the world's largest developer and publisher of international standards applicable to public organizations and private-sector businesses alike. This non-governmental network's membership spans 157 countries, and its standards cover a range of sectors, including manufacturing, trade, technology and consumer services. Image Source was accredited with ISO 9001, signifying that the agency has achieved a level of product and service quality that is recognized and respected throughout the world.

The Best Companies Guide recognizes the best U.K. employers, from the employees' perspective. Its parent, Best Companies Ltd., is the publisher of the Sunday Times' list of 100 Best Companies to Work For and uses the same survey methodology in compiling its annual guides. Image Source was featured as a company to watch.

Image Source founder and CEO Christina Vaughan says these achievements are indicative of the agency's unwavering "commitment to strong creative, quality and management standards." CEO Duncan Grossart points out that Image Source is bucking the trend in a tough year for the stock industry.
