Entries now open for the 2019 BICSc Annual Awards

The British Institute of Cleaning Science (BICSc) is staging its Annual Awards Ceremony on Thursday 26 September 2019 at Whittlebury Hall Hotel and Spa in Northamptonshire. The awards celebrate ‘brilliance’ in training and accreditation throughout the cleaning industry and are now recognised as one of the most prestigious accolades throughout the sector. The passion and determination that goes into being a ‘stand out’ company or individual deserves recognition, and the 11 award categories are designed to recognise these achievements.

Last year’s winner of the ‘Outstanding Candidate of the Year’ award, Fern Soo, said about the impact winning an award had: “Winning ‘Outstanding Candidate of the Year’ has opened up so many opportunities for me. Since winning the award, I have travelled to multiple sites across my organisation conducting BICSc training with other members of the team. It has encouraged participation amongst my colleagues, and they have shown more motivation to use best practice and industry standards across the board.”

In addition to the usual, six ‘applied for’ awards, this year there is a new ‘applied for’ category, ‘The John Edwards Award’, which recognises an outstanding corporate member for their commitment and support in helping the Institute achieve its goal: ‘Creating a career in cleaning’.
