As part of the Dept for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS), the Better Regulation Executive (BRE) have recently begun working with Balreed and NAPPS to achieve their goal of ensuring that UK regulation is both fair and effective. Through consultation with the UK's private sector the BRE is seeking to ensure that the voice of business is heard in developing better regulation.
Sue Bide, BRE Team Leader commented: "The Better Regulation Executive at the Department for Business were interested to meet Balreed to understand more about their business including discussing issues they had that were potential barriers to their growth."
"BRE were also keen to hear about Balreed's experience of regulation in the workplace, and how the Government's programme of deregulation was having an impact. We look forward to working with the company on a case study of their experiences".
Taking place at Balreed's Maidstone headquarters the BRE team were able to gain an understanding of Balreed's operations and their customer centric, service based business model. With this knowledge the two parties were able to openly discuss the impact that centralised regulation has had upon Balreed's employees, compliance and efficiency.
Gary Downey, Balreed's Marketing Director, commented: "As a rapidly growing business the work the BRE are doing to remove unnecessary regulation is of tremendous value to Balreed and enables us to focus on our clients. This was a great opportunity to share our experiences and the best practices we operate with NAPPS and the BRE and I look forward to continuing to work in partnership."
