(TRAVELERS REST, SC) Quality Business Solutions, Inc. (QBS), an outsourced payroll, human resources and benefits firm, has earned national certification as a Women’s Business Enterprise by the Greater Women’s Business Council, the Southeast regional certifying partner of the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC).
WBENC’s national standard of certification follows a meticulous process including an in-depth review of the business and site inspection designed to confirm the business is at least 51% owned, operated and controlled by a woman or women. WBENC certification fuels economic growth globally through access to opportunities, by identifying, certifying and facilitating development of women-owned businesses.
This certification will better position the firm to compete for the increasing number of government and private industry contracts where a diverse minority- and women-owned supplier base is preferred or required.
“While many companies and government agencies are looking to stimulate economic growth by broadening their supply base, they need to be sure that suppliers are reputable and honest in their claims,” said Pamela Evette, president and chief executive officer, Quality Business Solutions, Inc. “WBENC plays a powerful role in giving buyers peace of mind while opening new and exciting opportunities for women-owned businesses. We are thrilled to be certified by this important organization and proud to work toward our shared goals of empowerment, mentorship and success.”

The company has experienced revenue growth of nearly $300 million over the past three years, making it a $1 billion-dollar enterprise. QBS attributes its exponential growth to the ever-growing demand for business process outsourcing services and to its strategic, personal and counsel-based approach to solving human capital-related business challenges.
