We’ve been in business since September 2003 and in that time we’ve had many sales meetings, operations meetings and hundreds of one to one chats but you know what? We’ve never, ever, had the whole management team in one room. Not once.
Just when we thought the new normal had arrived, it’s all change as Covid19 raises it’s ugly head once again.
At long last we have a number of furloughed members of the team returning after their time away from the business, including the sales and marketing teams so we can start to get back to growth and creating opportunities once again.
I suppose, if nothing else, this terrible Covid19 situation has given a lot of business owners a time to look reflect on what they do and how things could be improved, changed or left alone.
I’m sure in years to come, 2020 will be remembered but not in a good way.
Happy New Year.
It doesn’t seem two minutes ago when we were preparing for the ‘millennium bug’ and the chaos it was about the reveal with systems crashing, infrastructure failing and aircraft dropping from the skies. That was twenty years ago. Twenty. I can’t believe it.
A group of the team spent a day with Inspirational Training to learn about First Aid at Work in December. Being in a position to perhaps save a life is a vital life skill and we thoroughly enjoyed the full day of learning with the excellent Dave Jones.

The cleaning industry has forever been about people. Most service industries are about the humans who work in it and it has always been that way.
Sometimes in life, you need a little help, a bit of guidance. Business is no different. Over the years, we’ve built something special and really enjoyed doing it. With great people working alongside, we’ve become good at what we do and we like to think we’ve been innovative with things like our bespoke auditing and management system and even the ‘Milk Round’ which means none of our plastic waste goes to landfill.
