Cleaning staff have the WOW factor

London-based specialist in cleaning and hygiene, Julius Rutherfoord, has joined forces with The WOW! Awards to launch a new recognition programme for its employees. A wide range of businesses across the country now use the WOW! Awards scheme to show that their employees are valued and to help build a culture of service excellence. The awards improve staff engagement and make it easy for customers to give positive feedback.

Chris Parkes, operations director at Julius Rutherfoord, said: “The important work that cleaners perform each day often goes unrecognised. This is partly due to the fact that cleaning staff typically work outside of normal business hours and are rarely seen by the building's users, but also due to the history of the profession, they are often only noticed when things go wrong. Julius Rutherfoord is a quality service provider which aims to change the way the cleaning profession is viewed. We invest in our staff, encouraging the London Living Wage, career development, and reward hard work. The WOW! Awards provide the perfect platform for our cleaners to gain the recognition they deserve and further encourage high standards.”

Anyone benefitting from the quality cleaning and support services that Julius Rutherfoord provides can submit a WOW! Award nomination for a member of staff via the Julius Rutherfoord website at Nominations are independently judged by The WOW! Awards team, and certificates of recognition are awarded to staff who are providing an outstanding service.
