Cleanology’s fair pay campaign pays off

Cleanology’s long term commitment to fair pay in the cleaning industry has resulted in a win at the Living Wage Champion Awards.

CEO Dominic Ponniah (pictured) said: “Of all the awards Cleanology has won in recent years, this has the most significance. It means so much to our team, which campaigns tirelessly to make Cleanology a Living Wage company. In an industry known for low pay and fast turnover of staff, we are committed to changing the landscape, and we are unbelievably proud to receive recognition for our work.”

Cleanology was the winner of the Recognised Service Provider 2021 category. Since 2017, the company has almost doubled the number of employees receiving the Real Living Wage.

Laura Gardiner, director of the Living Wage Foundation, which organised the awards, said: “Despite the challenges of the past 18 months, the Living Wage movement has never been stronger - we’ve continued to grow, welcoming our 7000th employer, and tonight we come together to recognise some of the outstanding work these employers have done. The Living Wage Champion Awards 2021 are a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the importance of a wage that truly covers the cost of living and the value this provides for workers and businesses, and I congratulate Cleanology on their deserved award.”
