Scenario: The client was experiencing issues with their previous service provider due to a lack of consistency and support from local management coupled with poor communication. Due to this lack of management support cleaning standards had declined, staff morale was affected, staff were not paid correctly and the cleaning hours were not being utilised to optimum effect. Management information was not available and faulty equipment was not being repaired or replaced. This led to them initiating a competitive tender process which saw six companies bidding for the contract.
Solution: The client required a service partner who could commit to providing a consistent, single point of contact for the overall portfolio in addition to local management attending site on a regular basis. Cleaning hours were scheduled more effectively which increased morale and improved standards, a PPM schedule was put in place which is reviewed and updated on a monthly basis.
