The finalists of the 2022 Kimberly-Clark Professional Golden Service Awards have been announced.
Tipped by many as the ‘Oscars’ of the cleaning industry, these awards recognise excellence, performance and commitment through unprecedented times in the cleaning and FM industry.
The announcement follows the first stage of judging carried out independently by The British Institute of Cleaning Science (BICSc). The judges have announced that this year’s entries had a good proactive approach to environmental awareness alongside a focus on attention to Covid issues. There was a clear increase in respect for staff wellbeing with the living wage a prominent theme. Overall, the 2022 Golden Service Awards entrants showed more care and development of cleaning teams with a strong emphasis on future efficiencies.
Fifty-nine finalists have been chosen from 24 companies. The finalist companies are:

The finalists will now go through to the next stage of judging which for most categories includes a site visit by a BICSc judge. The site visits will take place during January/February, with the judging panel looking for innovation, staff training, and client relationships as the main criteria for assessment.
The winners will be announced on Thursday 26 May 2022 at the InterContinental London Park Lane.
