We are now being asked a lot about what to do if you suspect you may have the Coronavirus.
There are a lot of mixed messages going around regarding the potential pandemic of Coronavirus or Covid-19 as it’s now been named.
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.
There has been a lot of uncertainty for years now regarding Brexit and the way forward. Now that the election is over and the Government has its majority, perhaps it will be good for business and we can, at last, proceed with our growth plans and create many more opportunities across the business.
As part of our service provision, we’re always looking for ways we can provide a more complete service to our customers. We’ve partnered up with a north east based grounds maintenance / winter gritting company who we can thoroughly recommend.
We’re pleased to be able to welcome Kayleigh Stevens to the family as the Business Development Manager covering Yorkshire. There’s a huge opportunity to grow the business and create many excellent new positions right across the company to compliment the fantastic people we have working with us. Of course for Kayleigh to join us as the BDM in Yorkshire, it means that Rachael McCarthy has left us after three years in that role. We thank Rachael for all of her hard work and wish her every success in whatever challenge Rachael decides to tackle next. Enjoy your time with the family and once again, thank you for everything.
After thirteen years (and five months) working in the Edwards Family, Agnes Dembo retired today. Never late or sick, Agnes has been so very loyal and hard working for us and of course, the customers Agnes has worked with over the years. Mother of seven children, Agnes joined us in 2006 being able to speak little English. Agnes actually took over her daughter’s work when Candy decided to leave and Agnes has been with us ever since. This morning, just before the end of her shift, Hazel, Andrius and Paul went to wish Agnes a very happy retirement and say thank you. You’re going to be a huge miss, thank you very much for such amazing loyalty, dedication and for looking after our customers.
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.
