Global service provider, Atalian Servest, has been awarded the inaugural John Edwards British Institute of Cleaning Science (BICSc) award. The exclusive award is new to this year and has been given to Atalian Servest as part of a corporate member recognition.
The award accredits Atalian Servest for their outstanding commitment and proven track record of promoting BICSc standards within the organisation and for supporting careers in cleaning services.
BICSc is the UK’s largest independent, professional and educational body within the cleaning industry. John Edwards, the namesake of the award, has had a long relationship with the Institute and has previously served on the BICSc Council and has been honoured the title of Life Vice President. The BICSc annual awards is one of the most prestigious events in the cleaning and facilities management industry’s calendar, celebrating excellence in both training and accreditation.
In 2017, Atalian Servest was awarded BICSc training centre accreditation and assessor status as a result of an intense six-month training period carried out by the company to achieve the level of standard.
“Here is a team who clearly takes pride when it comes to BICSc corporate membership. Atalian Servest promotes colleague welfare through the use of safe practises, enhancing the quality of service delivery along the way. Their approved BICSc assessors deliver training and skills accreditation to a huge number of their team…well done Atalian Servest.” Representative at BICSc.
“We are thrilled to accept this award, the first ever of its kind from BICSc. It is a clear reflection of the hard work Atalian Servest has done over the years in terms of cleaning provision and training.” Johan Venter, Managing Director of Cleaning at Atalian Servest.
In May of this year, Servest formally merged with global facilities management company Atalian to form one of the world’s largest FM outsourcing companies. The global service provider has developed a solid reputation for successful acquisitions and has positively progressed as a result of its extensive growth before and since the merger.
