To engage with the cleaning staff, raise morale through systems changes, provide encouragement, and increase cleaning standards.
The Sitemark system was the perfect fit. Stage 1 Review: gave an overview of the situation and strategies for change. Stage 2 Implement: gave the school flexible choices to be supported to make the necessary changes.
A detailed productivity analysis evidenced the levels of staff required to support budgets.
The specification was updated to capture all cleaning requirements and provide key performance indicators (KPIs) as a measurable metric.
Supervisors were supported in skill development and trained to cascade this information to their cleaning operatives.
Development of a tablet-based audit provided a consistent method of measuring the standards against the KPIs.
Improvements in cleaning standards have been achieved giving pupils and staff a healthier learning environment and increased morale and successes.
"From start to finish Sitemark made the implementation of some substantial changes a simple and positive process"
