Course details
There is growing evidence that facility cleaning services can have a big impact on a building’s air quality, and occupant wellbeing. The implementation of green cleaning protocols can directly help your organisation achieve up to four Green Star Performance credits, and improve your landfill and energy targets. Yet the challenge of engaging with contracted services and an after-hours workforce, means that many opportunities for training, measuring and improving performance are lost.

In this 45 minutes webinar, Bridget will explain how to influence existing contractor agreements and embed stronger controls into future procurement process.

Learning outcomes:

Understand which cleaning service requirements can directly and indirectly help your organisation to achieve Green Star Performance credits.
Learn how to identify the leverage points within existing cleaning contracts and how to use them to engage with after-hours cleaning personnel and managers.
Receive a practical guide to the five key aspects of the procurement process necessary for building stronger and more measurable future agreements.
