Last night we were honoured to win a Mayor of Croydon Civic Award for our commitment to the Croydon community.
Shortlisted in the Business in the Community category, our continued efforts toward local recruitment and development of skills were recognised on what was a fantastic evening.
We spent the night with the borough’s best businesses to celebrate the people and companies that have gone the extra mile to serve the community.
Our investment in young local people was a key part of our success in winning this award. We work closely with Croydon Works to attend jobs fairs and workshops aimed at helping disadvantaged people into meaningful employment.
We’ve had some help from this week our commercial banking partners to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Chequers.
Natwest have worked with us for number of years and have presented the two founding brothers with their own ceremonial buckets, as a throwback to the company’s roots.
Gary and Paul Jeal started Chequers 30 years ago as a window cleaning business, working from the back of an old Morris Marina and cleaning local shop fronts.
We’d like to thank our business partners once again for helping to remind us where we started!
The Team at Townsend’s Primary School
Hard work didn’t go unnoticed last month as we had a number of Employee of the Month winners for August!
We had winners spanning multiple departments, from our Schools division to our Grounds Maintenance department.
Nathan Drew, one of our Tree Surgeons has distinguished himself recently through his excellent management of the recently awarded Tree Works contract for our client Family Mosaic. He has gone above and beyond, even working out of hours to make sure his tasks are completed ahead of schedule.
Samuel Osei, a Cleaning Operative in our Commercial Department was nominated by a resident for his professionalism, and the very high standard of cleaning he consistently delivers. He has proved himself a dedicated member of staff who is always helpful to residents.
For Renovo, Jenny Encinas has impressed the One Housing Scheme Manager thanks to her fantastic attitude to work and excellent service she provides. In particular, her polite and caring nature has gone down well with all at the Senior Living scheme she cleans.
Finally, after a summer of carrying out school deep cleans has garnered special praise for a whole number of employees working at Townsend Primary School. The Deep Clean team has developed a strong bond, working under strict time constraints to complete their tasks efficiently, leaving the school spotless in the process.
Congratulations to all our winners, keep up the great work!
