The Building Services Contractors Association of Australia – QLD (BSCAA) has named Cleanworks Australia Outstanding Company in the Cleaning Industry 2016 as part of their annual Excellence Awards.
The award was presented to members of the Cleanworks team at the AustralianSuper Excellence Awards cocktail evening at the Victoria Park Golf Club on Friday 18 November, alongside 10 other individual and organisation winners from the cleaning and security industries.
The Outstanding Company in the Cleaning Industry award recognises a company which has established the most outstanding training culture and best practices throughout its organisation with the focus on employees.
In awarding the accolade to Cleanworks Australia, BSCAA representatives referenced Cleanworks’ unique and highly-effective cleaner incentive programmes as well as the company’s demonstrated ability to integrate the work of management and coalface staff to deliver results for their clients.
Cleanworks Founder and CEO Kelly Broderick described receiving the award as a crowning moment.
“When Katie Eckford and I started Cleanworks 15 years ago, we had little more than ambition and an idea; and since then our business has flourished into a workforce of 169 cleaners servicing 282 sites and carrying over 347,500 hours of cleaning each year,” Ms Broderick said.
“The driving force behind that journey has been a desire to do things differently, and in particular, the belief that investing in your people will ultimately yield more than it costs.
“As we’ve tested that theory through systematic training and upskilling, and cleaner incentive programmes which have included payed vacations, we have seen that idea validated. Recognising our people as the valuable resource they are has enabled us to deliver good results for our clients, retain quality workers, recruit the best and brightest into our organisation and grow our business from strength to strength.”
