What are the benefits of using an external auditor such as yourself?

There are many benefits to be gained from using an external resource to assist with your quality audits, including:

  • bringing a fresh pair of eyes into your organisation – an external auditor will ‘see’ and unearth opportunities that may not have been discovered internally
  • digging deeper – an external auditor doesn’t have the organisational knowledge & background of an internal auditor so has to dig that bit deeper, potentially realising opportunities that may be missed otherwise
  • best practice – a different approach to auditing, rather than ‘going through the motions’
  • relieves internal resource pressures – by using another resource, staff can get about their business rather than conducting audits
  • learning – from someone who has more experience
  • more accountability – when an external partner performs an audit that generates actions, they are more likely to be completed in a timely manner

Some organisations sub-contract the majority of their audits; others use an external resource a couple of times a year. Find the balance that works for you.
