ServiceMaster Clean Contract Services LNP staff member awarded a prestigious award by Leicester City Football Club.

Davinder Ghattoura, Leicester Supervisor for ServiceMaster Clean Contract Services LNP, has been awarded the Active Woman 2023 award by Leicester City Football Club as part of their Leicester City in the Community programme.

Davinder attended an event at King Power Stadium, where she won their most prestigious award.

The accolade recognises her contributions to their Active Women programme.

Moreover, it also recognises Davinder’s embodiment of their core values: engage, inspire and empower through togetherness.


Leicester City Active Women

The Active Woman programme encourages sports engagement for women aged 18-49.

Davinder also won a football signed by the LCFC Women’s Team!

 

Winning the award means a huge amount to Davinder, who, less than a year ago, featured on ITV news representing the programme, and says she is honoured.

“I couldn’t believe it,” she says. “[What was] even more special was sharing this moment with my mum, who had attended with me. [It was] such a proud moment for us to share.”

“The Active Women project has become a part of my life,” she adds.

“I have tried my best at everything I have attended.”

“I will proudly hold the title of Active Women 2023 to engage and inspire more women this year and for years to come.”

The team at ServiceMaster Clean Contract Services would like to say a massive well done to Davinder.

We eagerly look forward to seeing how she helps to shape the Active Women programme in the future.

Meet the new Associate Operations Director from ServiceMaster Clean West London and North Surrey.

Congratulations are in order for Aga from ServiceMaster Clean Contract Services Surrey and London, who has recently been promoted to Associate Operations Director!

Aga, who is Polish, joined the company 17 years ago and quickly proved to be invaluable to the business, despite initially struggling with the language barrier.

However, she quickly learnt the language and skills necessary to become a crucial team member.

She says that business owners Lee and Rachael Downer helped help her hit the ground running, and references the commitment of the whole team to make the business a success:

“Lee and Rachael were a huge support to give me the determination and encouragement to move outside my comfort zone,” she says.

“The greater achievement [of her promotion] is because we work as a team – without that support of the office team and the wider staff, I would not be as successful.”

Behind the scenes

Aga is always busy and brings the same level of dedication and commitment to everything she does.

In her spare time, she enjoys travelling, having recently visited Rome with her daughter.

This summer, other adventures await her as she takes opportunities to explore new cultures and foods and embrace her love of cooking.

Aga says she is motivated to work on her well-being and maintain a work-life balance, as her mental and physical health is a priority.

Aga is an incredibly hard worker whose ability to wear many different hats is a testament to the diligent care and attention she gives to all she does.

Specifically, Aga volunteers in her local community at a ServiceMaster-sponsored local Polish School – teaching Polish each week.

Aga says:

“It is a community – we support each other – it’s not just cleaning, but socially, personally & professionally too.”

Congratulations, Aga, from all of us at ServiceMaster Clean Contract Services!

ServiceMaster Clean Newbury had a very successful evening recently at the ServiceMaster Clean Contract Services Summer Summit, receiving two awards for growth.

At ServiceMaster Clean Contract Services, we always strive to go above and beyond in all we do, whether it’s exceeding our client’s expectations, nurturing relationships with our staff and customers or developing a thriving franchise network.

Earlier this month, we celebrated many of our franchise business owners who go above and beyond as part of our annual conference, the ServiceMaster Clean Contract Services Summer Summit.

This fantastic day allowed our franchisees from across the UK to come together with staff from our head office and event sponsors from different companies to network, develop, and celebrate their businesses.

Awards for ServiceMaster Clean Newbury

To close the day, a black-tie awards evening saw various franchisees awarded for their recent achievements and contributions to our network and the cleaning industry.

Amongst the winners was ServiceMaster Clean Newbury, who last year won the coveted North Star Invest Award, and this year won multiple awards for growth in the business.

The Awards Won

These included two awards for achieving exceptional business growth milestones. The first was for growth of over £500,000 in one year, and the second was for over £1 million growth over five years.

Since becoming an EOT in 2021 and making the staff the owners, ServiceMaster Newbury has focused on growth by working hard to retain its existing clients and secure new ones whilst continuing to deliver the same high standards their clients expect and deserve.

With the employees owning the majority of shares in the company, they are incredibly motivated to go above and beyond in the services they provide for their customers.

This desire to grow and develop the business has included an emphasis on sales and a particular effort to nurture and develop staff talent in sales-oriented roles.

The business has also started to access new, high-value markets and made a particular effort to listen to customer needs. This strategy’s benefits are now paying off, as demonstrated by these two awards for growth.

Business Services Director Jane Paisley said

“If everyone is committed to delivering the best service, maintaining professional standards, and working together to achieve this, a business can develop and grow.”

“Our continued growth will provide opportunities for investment in our people, equipment, green initiatives and the wider community.”

“Winning these awards is the culmination of everyone’s hard work over the past five years. It Is wonderful to have this hard work recognised by the presentation of these two awards at the CS Summer Summit 2023.”

“We were very proud to win both these awards and share this experience with our fellow franchisees.”

ServiceMaster LNP picked up multiple awards at this year’s ServiceMaster Clean Contract Services Summer Summit.

At ServiceMaster Clean Contract Services, we always strive to go above and beyond in all that we do.

Whether it’s exceeding our client’s expectations, nurturing relationships with our staff and customers or developing a thriving franchise network.

Earlier this month, we celebrated many of our franchise business owners who go above and beyond in their own ways as part of our annual conference, the ServiceMaster Clean Contract Services Summer Summit.

This fantastic day allowed our franchisees from across the UK to come together with staff from our head office and event sponsors from different companies to network, develop, and celebrate their businesses.

Awards for ServiceMaster Clean Contract Services Leicester

To close out the day – a black tie awards evening saw expectational franchisees awarded for their recent achievements and contributions to our network and the cleaning industry.

Amongst the winners was ServiceMaster Clean Contract Services Leicester, whose team won an impressive four awards.

The awards won

These included two awards for business growth, which reached impressive numbers in recent years.

ServiceMaster LNP’s growth awards recognised their growth of £800,000 in 2022 and £5 million in the last two years.

Another award recipient from the Leicester team was Area Supervisor Davinder Ghattoura, who was recently featured on ITV news as part of a report about the Leicester City Football Club Active Women programme.

Davinder won both Employee’s Employee of the Year and the coveted Above and Beyond award for her contributions to the team.

General Manager Lee Redfern says:

“It makes me immensely proud when we received these awards, as it reflects just how hard everyone has worked in the business to get us to this level.”

He attributes the growth and successes of the business to,

“A mixture of having a good base template to start and train from, setting ourselves high standards, and having a Team right throughout the three areas we look after, from Sales, to Operations, our office-based staff, the Delivery Team, and ultimately our cleaners, who all want to achieve the same thing, and help the company grow, whilst providing a great service for our customers.”

“It does mean a lot to all of us to win the awards that we have done, although there is a hunger to always go further.”

He adds:

“The Awards evening was very enjoyable, and It was great to be a part of it.”

“Having the opportunity to acknowledge our success last year with some of our team was a great highlight, and also our Area Supervisor Davinder Ghattoura winning the Employee’s, Employee of the Year Award, and the Above and Beyond Award was a fantastic achievement.”

We’d like to take this opportunity to congratulate Lee and his team on their hard work and achievements and wish them continued success in the future.

ServiceMaster Clean Contract Services Mid-Anglia is recognising the long service of an employee.

 The cleaning industry is infamous for notably high staff turnover rates. So, when members of staff work in a business for a long time, not only is it notable, but it’s also a sign of an exceptional operation.

One such business is ServiceMaster Clean Contract Services Mid-Anglia, which, on top of leading the way in terms of its environmental initiatives, has today celebrated the 19th work anniversary of one of its Cleaning Operatives, Sue Toll.

Not only that, but today Sue celebrated working with the same client with whom she began working almost two decades ago!

This demonstrates the strength of the client relationships cultivated at ServiceMaster Clean Contract Services.

We work closely with our cleaners and customers to create a bespoke and personal service that is exceptional and performed with heart.

To celebrate Sue’s achievement, she was awarded a certificate and glass plaque – which can be seen above being handed to Sue by Operations Manager: Tim Stevens.

How business success led to an overseas Christmas for ServiceMaster AAA.

2022 was a year of success for the owner of ServiceMaster Clean Contract Services AAA Siva Kugathas.

From winning and judging awards – including being crowned a Great British Entrepreneur and cleaning up at ServiceMaster Live – to taking part in multiple initiatives to support the local community, there’s been no shortage of activity for Siva and his team.

So, a trip abroad to commemorate the holidays certainly didn’t go amiss!

As part of a Christmas Conference and to celebrate all of the various successes and say thank you for all of their hard work, Siva took his senior leadership team to Antalya in Turkey last month.

The conference

When the team arrived in Turkey, it was time for a traditional dress evening full of celebration and anticipation for the conference, which Siva says created great excitement with guests at the hotel.

The next day, Siva shared 2022 results and unveiled plans & strategies for 2023.

This also involved a session on retaining and growing customers, followed by an evening Awards session, meal and drinks to celebrate and thank those who went above and beyond for ServiceMaster AAA in 2022.

The trip was tied off the next day with a full day to explore Antalya and a final evening meal, after which the team danced the night away before their flight home the next day.

The impact

Now back from Turkey, Siva says that he wanted to take his team overseas as an opportunity to bring everyone together.

With a vast territory covering many different areas in the country and staff based in separate offices nationwide, Siva says his goal with the conference was partly to bring the team together and get them working as a unit.

He says it was great to see his staff in a different environment, which enabled him to see how he can support them in a work setting and reward them for their hard work this year.

He adds that the trip was great fun and that it was lovely that everyone got to share an experience, socialise and get together, which, with such a vast team, doesn’t happen very often!

Though it is behind us now, 2021 was difficult for people and businesses worldwide. During these uncertain times, ServiceMaster Clean Contract Services have stayed committed to supporting our staff through the challenges of the last year. Behind every successful franchise network is a team of staff who work tirelessly to make sure that our services are the best that they can possibly be. Working to maintain a successful network means working hard to make sure to cultivate a positive environment and improve staff satisfaction levels and retention. We pride ourselves in our ability to do this, even in an industry like contract cleaning services where this is usually difficult.

It doesn’t take much, and can just be in the little things. For example, before Christmas last year, ServiceMaster Clean Contract Services Swansea continued its annual tradition of hand delivering a box of chocolates to each of its 250 staff members at their place of work. This was a small token of appreciation for its staff for their work throughout the year, and to wish them a Merry Christmas. However, due to the pandemic and Swansea’s ever-growing staff, the team decided to go the extra mile and do things a little differently and sent every member of staff a ServiceMaster branded chocolate bar in the post. But that wasn’t all, just like Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, a select number of these chocolates had a winning raffle ticket inside that had a combined value of over £450.00! The lucky member of staff just had to call into the office and quote the code on the ticket.

One of the winners decided to spend her winnings on extra physio for her grandson, another decided to finish off her Christmas shopping, and another waited for her son to arrive home before opening the chocolate (as he is a Charlie in the Chocolate Factory Fan) and was delighted to find a winning ticket.

The top winner was Carly Morris who works in a Sports Centre and a Doctor Surgery in Neath, and she was kind enough to send the below photo.

ServiceMaster Clean Contract Services Swansea’s staff were overjoyed by this gesture, and the branch are looking forward to doing the same in December of this year.

Our staff are at the heart of our franchises, and they have worked tirelessly to ensure that the work we do is carried out safely and to a high standard in spite of changing and often challenging working conditions posed by the pandemic.
