ICCA INDUSTRY AWARDS 2018
Returning this year are the ICCA Industry Awards, a celebration of Ireland’s contract cleaning industry.
The Irish Contract Cleaning Association (ICCA) Industry Awards – which were last held in 2014 – will be held at lunchtime on Friday 19 October 2018, in the Round Room at the Mansion House, Dawson St, Dublin 2, right in the heart of the city.
The Industry Awards ceremony is the biggest social event on the ICCA calendar, and remains ever popular with members and stakeholders in the industry. In previous years, it was attended by more than 300 commercial contract cleaning personnel, service providers and guests.
The independently judged awards recognise service excellence in the contract cleaning industry and provide a benchmark for quality, as well as a means of identifying leading service providers in the field. The programme celebrates the work being carried out behind the scenes on sites by contract cleaning companies and in-house cleaning helps teams throughout the country and helps promote a more professional image for the industry.
Independently appointed judge, Siobhan Prout, is currently undertaking site visits and notes that the cleaning standards of sites are high across a broad category of buildings. She is looking forward to a competitive process and sends well wishes to all applicants.
The Awards have attracted some of the key companies in the sector including NOONAN, SSE, Cagney Contract Cleaning, Derrycourt, MCR, Ryans Cleaning, Moore Services, ECO-Group, Momentum, ISS and Grosvenor.
Bunzl Cleaning & Safety Supplies (BCSS), a trading division of Bunzl Ireland Ltd., is the Lead Sponsor for the Awards. Tom Dalzell, Managing Director of Bunzl Cleaning & Safety Supplies, said: “BCSS are delighted to work in partnership with the ICCA. These awards recognise and celebrate the vital role of professional contract cleaning service providers in our private and public-sector infrastructure.
“BCSS aims to build lasting relationships with the contract cleaning industry, pioneering innovation and offering our customers the best possible service, selection, quality and cost in use solutions. We wish all nominees the very best of luck and we look forward to celebrating the contract cleaning Industry successes with everyone attending on 19 October.”
Additional category sponsors include Diversey, Kärcher, Nilfisk, Workwear Experts, MG Hygiene, ICE and Chemical Direct.
The association, which was originally established in 2000,
created a forum for the contract cleaning sector to network, innovate and promote the industry at a national level. Reformed last year, the association established as a limited company and re-energised its objectives to represent member companies involved in the provision of cleaning services on a commercial basis in Ireland.
Since its reformation, the association has focused on issues affecting the industry and is aiming to discuss and share best practice among members. General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliance legislation is of keen interest, ensuring that members understand and meet the regulation requirements. A well-attended member seminar held last November presented on GDPR as well as insurance claims management, promoting awareness and best practice in the management of an active claims environment for commercial cleaning companies.
The objectives of the Association are:
• To represent member companies involved in the provision of cleaning services on a commercial basis in Ireland.
• To seek status and prestige for the industry and public recognition of the industry’s vital role.
• To adopt a code of practice for members and monitor membership and participation.
• To ensure promotion of the Association’s objectives.
• To assist the industry in promoting professional training and recruitment in order to raise industry standards.
• To create a forum for the free exchange of information and experience, and networking opportunities among members through discussion, study, publications and social activities.
ICCA Members value that there is a co-ordinated professional voice of the industry – a voice that represents the industry. Equally, members value the networking opportunities, recognition, training and communications offered by the Association. The ICCA welcomes membership interest from companies throughout the country.
The association continues to value its supportive relationship with suppliers to the sector. There is a strong connection with companies that provide products and services to its members and the association works to sustain valued relationships by creating networking opportunities and synergies between members and suppliers.
