Stan Atkins, chief executive officer at The British Institute of Cleaning Science (BICSc) adds: “The quality of the entries in this edition of the Golden Service Awards was higher than ever before and while innovation and the environment lead the agenda, three other key words sum up the evolution of this industry: Respect; Diversity and Wellbeing. Respect – for cleaning operatives; Diversity – in employment and opportunity; and an exciting focus on wellbeing, staff welfare, and mental health.  

“It is clear from the range of entries that companies are really investing in their people and using their experience to inspire their teams through leadership with compassion and empathy. This brings huge benefits from boosting morale to employee retention.”
