Who assesses how effective you are?
Many businesses pride themselves on the standard of cleaning and standard of maintenance of the building they occupy or that they are responsible for cleaning. The most frequent place visited by most users of the building is the washrooms. First impressions count and high standard must be achieved consistently if the provider's reputation is to be maintained.
As a service provider how do you know how you compare with your competitors and how do you gain recognition?
Entry into the annual Loo of the Year Awards will provide an independent assessment of 'away from home' toilet provision and recognition of the standards achieved based on 'the toilet standard' for the UK.
Mike Bone, the Awards Managing Director, says: "Leading retailers, restaurant and pub chains, visitor attractions, holiday parks, shopping centres, local authorities, and importantly the cleaning and FM sector, generally recognise the annual Loo of the Year Awards as a proven, cost effective and independent annual assessment of the standard of their toilet provision management and receive proper recognition through our annual grading scheme."
Nominations and entries are now being received for the 2015 Loo of the Year Awards - the annual competition to find the best places 'to go' in the UK including The Channel Islands, the Isle of Man and new for 2015 - the Republic of Ireland.
There are thousands of toilets entered annually from all market sectors (there are 60 entry categories). Entries are invited from all categories and every entry receives an unannounced, dedicated, inspection visit. Entries gaining a bronze, silver, gold or platinum award are presented with a certificate - to help them promote their Award winning facilities to their customers and staff.
There are many National and Overall awards and trophies for the very best entries which will be presented at the Awards Presentation Event to be held on Friday 4th December at the elegant four star St Johns Hotel in Solihull.
The Attendant of the Year Awards form part of Loo of the Year Awards but relate specifically to the cleaning staff that look after facilities, rather than the loos themselves. All attendants and/or cleaning staff will automatically be entered for an Attendant of the Year Award.
Anyone can enter online via the Awards website: www.loo.co.uk or by contacting [email protected] The closing date for entries is 30th June.
Loo of the Year Awards is a private company and the Awards are run this year in association with sponsors and supporters. For sponsorship opportunities or further information about the awards themselves:
