Our memberships and affiliations are important as they provide assurance of our legislative compliance, provide a forum for the ongoing development of best practice and ultimately allow us to improve the services we provide.
These partnerships help us to keep up to date, evaluate our management systems, promote key service messages and ensure we have the right skills for all areas of our operation.
Equally, the accreditations we have received from some of these organisations are hallmarks of Loomis’s high standards in all areas of cash management.
