WYN Holden is the first mo­tor ve­hi­cle deal­er­ship in the NT to earn Fe­male Friendly ac­cred­i­ta­tion.

It is also the first busi­ness of any kind in Kather­ine to achieve this sta­tus.

The Fe­male Friendly ac­cred­i­ta­tion re­wards busi­nesses that have a par­tic­u­lar em­pha­sis to help­ing women and prac­tise high stan­dards of cus­tomer ser­vice.

Fe­male Friendly, an on­line direc­tory of busi­nesses used and rec­om­mended by women, awards its Pink Tick and Sil­ver Shield only once a busi­ness has been shown to prac­tice good, eth­i­cal, hon­est trade and take spe­cial care and con­sid­er­a­tion of cus­tomers.

A key part of this ac­cred­i­ta­tion is let­ters of ref­er­ence from cus­tomers.

‘‘It’s a great feel­ing for a busi­ness to achieve Fe­male Friendly ac­cred­i­ta­tion be­cause it’s not some­thing you can just buy, you need to earn it,’’ Fe­male Friendly Ac­cred­i­ta­tion man­ager LeeAnne Clark said.

‘‘Ev­ery busi­ness on our direc­tory has been dis­cov­ered by Fe­male Friendly lis­ten­ing to the voices of the com­mu­nity. It’s the sis­ters, wives, moth­ers and girlfriends’ word-of-mouth, and now it’s on­line.’’

At www.fe­male­friendly. there are me­chan­ics, car deal­er­ships, in­surance bro­kers and many other in­dus­tries that have been ac­cred­ited.

Ms Clark said Fe­male Friendly felt con­fi­dent in di­rect­ing women to Wyn Holden for ser­vice and ad­vice, say­ing: ‘‘Wyn Holden passed with fly­ing colours – an out­stand­ing 100 per cent rat­ing and ac­cred­i­ta­tion com­pleted in record time.’’
