Thumbs Up award winners revealed

BICSc reveals the winners of the first Thumbs Up Awards

The British Institute of Cleaning Science (BICSc) has announced the names of the winners of the debut Thumps Up Awards.

Whilst the traditional BICSc Annual Awards Dinner for 2020 was cancelled, BICSc was determined to recognise those at the heart of the cleaning industry with the BICSc Thumbs Up Awards.

With the support of Rubbermaid Commercial Products, the awards recognise and reward five frontline Cleaning Operatives, with a bespoke engraved ‘Thumbs Up’ Trophy, a £250 gift voucher and a ticket to attend next year’s BICSc Annual Awards event.

The winners are shining examples of frontline industry excellence, who have each clearly demonstrated, throughout an exceptionally difficult time their dedication, commitment and passion, all of which are part of ‘Being BICSc’.

The winners are:

  • Rebecca Partridge, Aston University
  • Kylie Inman, Aston University
  • Steven Leeks, OCS
  • Leon Dole, ISS Facility Services
  • Norlida Stanton, Nuffield Health

Neil Spencer-Cook, Chief Operating Officer at BICSc, said: “The commitment to the BICSc ethos and raising standards continues to overwhelm us. This year particularly has shown us how what we do as an industry is imperative. The qualities of the Thumbs Up award winners and the examples they set for others is nothing short of outstanding. Keep up the good work.”

Stan Atkins, Chief Executive Officer of BICSc, added: “Since the outbreak of COVID-19, the cleaning industry has received a lot of attention. It has long been my assertion that we are the invisible workforce. The argument over key worker status continues, but there is no doubt that without the cleaning teams, the country would have ground to a halt. Our winners should be proud of their contribution to the greater good and I would like to take this opportunity to thank every one of them for a job well done.”
