IT service group Parity selects FCSA members as preferred suppliers
IT service group Parity selects FCSA members as preferred suppliersParity Group plc, the UK-listed services company providing IT recruitment and solutions, has selected Freelancer and Contractor Services Association (FCSA) members companies Giant Group and Parasol as preferred service suppliers.The companies are founder members of the FCSA, and voluntarily subject themselves to its rigorous Code of Conduct recognised by HM Revenue and Customs. It is designed to demonstrate to Government, as well as freelancers and contractors looking for a service provider, that a company is financially stable, provides high quality professional services and operates to the highest standards of transparency and accountability. Compliance is independently assessed and validated by one of the UKs Big Four accountancy companies, with documentation deposited with HM Revenue and Customs at the end of the accreditation process.Alan Rommel, Managing Director of Parity Group plc, said:Parity works with clients to bring out the best in their businesses, so it is critically important that companies we recommend or provide services for us have the highest standards. Companies compliant with the FCSA Code of Conduct can demonstrate that they are stable, transparent and accountable, which ultimately has provided us with the clarity and assurance necessary to confirm them as preferred, trusted suppliers.Stuart Davis, Chair of the FCSA, commented:This is great news for the FCSA because it shows that compliance with our Code of Conduct is a factor for major companies when they choose who to do business with. Compliance boosts business, and FCSA-accredited companies stand out from the rest because they can prove they are reliable, responsible and robust. More companies are now seeking FCSA accreditation because they recognise the commercial benefits, and were proud that our kitemark is regarded as a sign of professionalism in proximate sectors.IT contractors working with Parity will be referred to FCSA members from now on when they are seeking a service provider.
