BICSc recognised internationally for initiative in raising cleaning sector's profile
The British Institute of Cleaning Science was recognised for its achievements in raising the reputation of the cleaning industry at the 2018 European Cleaning & Hygiene Awards in Berlin last week.
BICSc won the Award for its 'Initiative in raising the profile of the cleaning sector' in recognition of its commitment to promoting a career path in cleaning through professional standards and education.
The annual Awards showcase standards of excellence in the professional cleaning industry and this year the programme received over 100 entries from 36 leading service providers, manufacturers and distributors. Sue Robinson, national chair for BICSc commented: "I was extremely proud to accept this award on behalf of BICSc. It recognises the enormous amount of work we have done to raise the image of the cleaning sector with the introduction of industry-wide professional standards and accredited training courses.
"This year, particularly, BICSc launched the 'Creating a Career in Cleaning' campaign with the aim of promoting a career path in cleaning alongside the launch of our Cleanlogic Workshops and Courses. This is just a small step in raising the profile of the industry, and we have lots of exciting plans to develop these further in the future. Congratulations to all our fellow finalists."
Compere for the evening and member of the judging panel, Michelle Marshall, editor of European Cleaning Journal, said: "We had some extremely strong entries this year, which is testament to the hard work and dedication of the sector. Our 2018 winners represent some of the most forward-thinking, innovative businesses, who are really making a difference in our industry."
