Sixty-six finalists, coming from 32 different companies have been announced for the 2020 Kimberly-Clark Professional Golden Service Awards, which recognise excellence and high standards in the cleaning and FM industry.

Our mission is to create Exceptional Workplaces and improve washroom standards throughout every facility, demonstrating our passion to continuously improve our industry.

Site visits will take place during November with the judging panel looking for innovation, staff training, and client relationships as the main criteria for assessment.
Stan Atkins, Chief Executive Officer, British Institute of Cleaning Science (BICSc) said: “Congratulations to all finalists for 2020. This is a year of unrivalled standards with evidence of clear innovations, and achievements across the industry. The judges look forward to meeting the finalists at the site visits. It is important to stress that it is the standards of excellence achieved that will be judged and not just whether the entry specifications are followed.”
The winners will be announced at a prestigious ceremony on Wednesday 4 March 2020 at the London Hilton, Park Lane. Over 500 guests including finalists and sponsors, and the leading names in the UK’s cleaning and FM industry are expected to come together to celebrate its stars and their achievements in 2020.
