The British Cleaning Council revealed recently that cleaners now represent approximately 5% of the entire UK workforce – that’s almost 2 million people!
Businesses across the nation can provide a safe space for their staff to work in thanks to our country’s cleaners. That’s why we invest so much time and money into our people; we know how instrumental they are.
Staff growth and development is just as important to us as delivering a first-class service to our clients, it’s a huge part of it in fact.
Recruitment & Induction
It’s the reason why even our recruitment process has been fine-tuned to perfection – we make sure to bring on the best people for the job from the very start, then begin their development and training from there.
Our induction process is just as thorough; all new starters are inducted on Health & Safety policies, Method Statement and COSHH Regulations. It’s important to us that we take the time to ensure any new cleaning operatives don’t set foot on site without a full induction.
Once our cleaner’s have been delegated a site we don’t just leave them to it. They receive routine Toolbox Talks from their Area Manager and receive certificates for each Toolbox Talk upon completion. The topics range from Store Cupboard Procedures to Mental Health. We cover anything that is beneficial to the development and wellbeing of our staff.
We also give our staff the opportunity to gain skills and qualifications that are unspecific to their cleaning roles. Recently, a number of our cleaning operative’s were offered the chance to become qualified for things like PAT Training, and we’ve also had staff doing admin work experience and shadowing in our main office, to improve their computer literacy and skills.
Even thirteen years after our inception, we’re still finding ways to help our 100+ staff members in their professional and personal growth. It’s just not a long-term investment for the company, it’s a way to show our staff that we care about them as people, not just as employees.
