PerformancePlus has been helping companies across East Anglia with management structures and quality frameworks since 2003. We have a 100% success record in helping companies gain the International Standards certifications they need. Our philosophy has always been to make the systems work for our clients rather than trying to make our clients change to suit some arbitrary system or process. It is this subtle, yet supportive approach, that has gained us an ever-increasing circle of friends amongst our clients (and some amazingly good testimonials).
We are able to offer a range of services throughout Suffolk and Norfolk to our clients including Marketing, Business Coaching and Mentoring. We also offer a wide range of ISO Standards support including ISO9001, ISO14001, ISO45001, and ISO27001.
