    Total Quality Management

    At Simplicity, we aim to drive both growth and efficiencies through greater investment in staff development, developing a cultural direction for the workforce and introducing business improvement techniques that have helped make us one of the UK market leaders in recruitment finance.

    We have a goal for ‘zero wastage and zero errors across the entire business’. Therefore, we have introduced Total Quality Management (TQM). TQM is a description of the culture, attitude and organisation of a company that strives to provide customers with products and services that satisfy their needs.
