On Friday, 7 October, the finalists of all categories were treated to a champagne reception and delicious lunch overlooking the Thames at the InterContinental London, courtesy of Riney. The awards ceremony was hosted by Tim Campbell MBE, star of The Apprentice, and ambassador for young people’s employment and social enterprise champion.

The Workforce Development Award

The Royal Greenwich Business Awards created the Workforce Development Award to showcase businesses’ skills in growing, encouraging and empowering their workforce.

To show a business’s skills in this category, a business may provide information regarding training programmes to further its staff’s skills, flexible working hours to ensure their staff can manage work and social responsibilities, and additional programmes that provide local people with great opportunities. Businesses could also demonstrate areas of the businesses they have improved to create a safer, friendlier environment for their staff.

Cleaning Express provided information regarding its online training course for its cleaners. The company also showed its commitment to its staff by providing information about its bonuses. Cleaning Express awards its staff with bonuses for outstanding work in commercial and domestic properties, as well as recognition awards for the most talented cleaners. 

Cleaning Express continued its application for the Workforce Development Award, stating that it improved its health and safety qualifications and are currently “working towards ISO certifications”. Noting that its staff are regularly provided training courses on various health and safety topics and receive certificates confirming their qualifications.

Providing staff with health and safety training and offering qualifications within this sector shows that Cleaning Express demonstrates a developmental strategy for the growth of its cleaners. 

Cleaning Express also noted in its application for the Workforce Development Award that “the vision of Cleaning Express was to create a better company which would care about all staff and tackle low morale and motivation.” One of the key ways Cleaning Express has achieved this is by working with the Living Wage Foundation to provide its cleaners and all other staff members with the London Living Wage or higher.
