Timely review wins cleaning contract plus London Living Wage for staff
Thames Cleaning & Support Services tells us it has managed to implement the London Living Wage without increasing its costs - a move that has helped it win the cleaning & support services contract at Blackstone's newly acquired premises at 160 Queen Victoria Street in London.

"Thames achieved this great award by reviewing and re-engineering all cleaning specifications," reveals Thames managing director Alex Weller. "Our approach resulted in efficiency and cost savings being found, which in part, were then used to introduce the 'London Living Wage'. Our proposal still achieved a significant saving for the client!
"This has resulted in extremely happy cleaning staff, a very happy supplier and a very happy client!"
Thames's approach is clearly working. The company is experiencing growth of 35% per annum and boasts a client retention rate of 95%. It has an annual turnover is £3.5m.
