The same due diligence applies to all non-industry related Commercial Organisations as it does all industry related Organisations: Coaches, Mentors, Education/Training, and non-industry related Commercial Organisations, working within the Coaching and/or Mentoring industry).
Non-industry related Commercial Organisations may be owned and run by individuals who are within the industry, but often they are owned and run by individuals who are not working within or have not studied the coaching and/or mentoring industry. These are organisations who may select to employ (directly or indirectly) Coaches and/or Mentors, or act as agencies finding Coaches and/or Mentors employment, or act as consultancies that employ (directly or indirectly) Coaches and/or Mentors for their own clients or customers.
Where the non-industry related Commercial Organisation is not owned and/or run by individuals who are within the industry, the IRCM recognises that these organisations will abide by their own industry related competence and validation, in addition to abiding by the related Coaching and Mentoring industry Codes of Conduct, competence, validation, and Ombudsman.
As defined in the coaching and mentoring industry definitions, non-industry related Commercial Organisations may employ, support, publish, market Coaches, Mentors, education/training, and professional services, and/or any other type of support required by the coaching and mentoring industry.
