BICSc announces 2020 Thumbs Up award winners

Whilst unable to deliver the physical 2020 BICSc Annual Awards Dinner, BICSc presented its Thumbs Up awards virtually. With the support of Rubbermaid Commercial Products, BICSc recognised and rewarded five frontline cleaning operatives with an engraved Thumbs Up trophy, a £250 gift voucher and a ticket to attend next year's BICSc Annual Awards event.

A spokesperson for BICSc said: “Our winners are shining examples of frontline industry excellence, who have each clearly demonstrated, throughout an exceptionally difficult time, their dedication, commitment and passion, all of which are part of ‘being BICSc’.”

The award winners are: Rebecca Partridge, Aston University; Kylie Inman, Aston University; Steven Leeks, OCS; Leon Dole, ISS Facility Services; and Norlida Stanton, Nuffield Health.
"The commitment to the BICSc ethos and raising standards continues to overwhelm us,” said Neil Spencer-Cook, chief operating officer, BICSc. “This year particularly has shown us how what we do as an industry is imperative. The qualities of the Thumbs Up award winners and the examples they set for others is nothing short of outstanding. Keep up the good work."

Stan Atkins, CEO, BICSc, said: “Since the outbreak of COVID-19, the cleaning industry has received a lot of attention. It has long been my assertion that we are the invisible workforce. The argument over key worker status continues, but there is no doubt that without the cleaning teams, the country would have ground to a halt. Our winners should be proud of their contribution to the greater good and I would like to take this opportunity to thank every one of them for a job well done.”
