Cogent Quality Statement
Cogent Business Solutions Pty Ltd (Cogent) is a provider of personnel security vetting services, employment screening and high quality consulting services and their associated business administration. Cogent is committed to exceeding client expectations based on the following principles:
- Client focus: Cogent is committed to understanding our current and future clients’ needs, meeting their requirements and striving to exceed their expectations.
- Leadership: Cogent’s Senior Management are committed to creating and maintaining a working environment where people become fully involved in achieving our objectives and client outcomes.
- Engagement of people: We recognise that people are the essence of any good business and that their committed involvement enables their full abilities to be used for our benefit.
- Process approach: We understand that a desired result is achieved more efficiently when activities and related resources are managed as a process or series of interconnected processes.
- Improvement: We are committed to achieving continual improvement across all aspects of our business.
- Evidence-based decision making: We are committed to making decisions relating to our management systems based on analysis of relevant data and information.
We believe that a critical factor to achieve this is by implementing a Quality Management System (QMS) in accordance with the requirements of ISO 9001:2015. The QMS aims to:
- meet the requirements of relevant interested parties and our social, charitable, regulatory, and legislative responsibilities;
- provide the necessary resources and ensure that responsibilities and authorities are determined and communicated appropriately;
- establish business and quality objectives, which are reviewed periodically through the management review process;
- ensure that the QMS remains effective in achieving business and quality objectives, conforming to the requirements of the ISO 9001:2015 Standard;
- seek structured feedback from clients and carry out actions in accordance with stated methods and client requirements; and
- assess opportunities for continual improvement.
Cogent has implemented an Internal Audit Program to ensure that the ongoing suitability and conformity of the QMS is maintained.
