The VenueVerdict Accreditation is based on customer feedback from 360 venues across the UK, and over 22,000 events. The accreditation is based on the twelve months ending in quarter two of this year.
The market research agency BDRC Continental award the Gold Standard, to only those venues achieving a twelve-month Net Promoter Score (NPS) of +70 (scores range from -100 to +100). NPS is a progressive measure of customer service performance which acknowledges the power that excellent service has when it comes to driving positive word of mouth for a brand.
Bronagh Bell, Director of the Beardmore Hotel and Conference Centre, commented: “To have achieved our second VenueVerdict Gold Accreditation of 2014 is an incredible accomplishment, and demonstrates that our commitment to customer service, attention to detail and dedication to continuous improvement is paying off.”
James Bland, Client Services Director at BDRC Continental, is responsible for the programme. Congratulating the Beardmore on its achievement, James said: “Achieving the Gold Standard for the second quarter of 2014 is a brilliant accomplishment for the Beardmore. Our targets for achieving this standard are rigorous and involves meeting a very diverse and specialised series of criteria to demonstrate a continued dedication to excellence and improvement throughout the organisation; to have accomplished this for the first two quarters of 2014 is a wonderful achievement and the team at the Beardmore should be very proud.”
The VenueVerdict Accreditation continues a fantastic 2014 for the Beardmore Hotel, having recently been awarded the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence and attaining the prestigious Investors in People Gold Accreditation for the first time.
Bronagh added: “Everything we do is with the goal of improving quality standards for our customers, clients and delegates. Over the past several years we have continually adapted and upgraded our facilities and technology to keep up with the fast paced world of modern conferencing and events.
“As we move into the second half of the year, we are in the middle of some big changes and developments and are looking forward to what promises to be one of our most exciting and innovative years yet.”
