HR compliance and reducing risk is always our priority at CCS and should be for any cleaning contractor. Compliance is like insurance – you only appreciate its value when it lets you down. Which is why it’s important to use a cleaning service provider that can be trusted to meet the highest industry standards and protect all of our reputations. Sadly, not all do. Recently there have been many cases, including one involving Denmark’s second largest facility service company where businesses found out the hard way the high cost of non-compliance.
Breaches in compliance can have a negative impact on not only cleaning service providers but in some cases, those they represent.
However, scenarios like these are generally avoidable. It’s like that saying goes: fail to prepare and prepare to fail. At CCS, HR compliance and reducing risk is of paramount importance. We’re constantly investing in our people and the systems we use to recruit, manage and train our teams. This helps us ensure we’re always as compliant as possible and mitigate risk to the business.
These are genuinely the things that keep us up at night! It’s the reason we proactively drive best practice 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. All our HR personnel are fully trained and up to speed on all employment legislation across all countries in which CCS operates. We’re proactive when it comes to the introduction of new policies and procedures and remain informed of upcoming changes in legislation.
In fact, since 2008 we’ve been investing in and developing our management systems to match the precise requirements of the cleaning industry. We have a bespoke HR IT system operating in multiple languages across seven countries to assist and coordinate our international teams.
Our adaptive HR IT system is an invaluable asset in remaining compliant. It enables us to access vital employee information and data reports in seconds; such as completed training, immigration documents, work permits and reference checks, so documentation never becomes a problem.
At CCS, we consider ourselves industry leaders with a clear vision; to deliver quality service while mitigating risk. This is achieved through our policies, procedures and systems and our SMART TEAM, SMART CLEAN ethos. Because peace of mind matters.
