Kimberly-Clark Professional reveals finalists of the 2024 Golden Service Awards

The stage is being set for the 2024 Kimberly-Clark Professional™ Golden Service Awards with the announcement of the finalists and comedian and actor Hugh Dennis as host.

Considered to be the ‘Oscars’ of the cleaning and FM industry, recognising the continued excellence, performance and commitment through unprecedented times, 57 finalists have been chosen from 28 companies.

The awards will take place on Thursday 23 May 2024 at the London Hilton on Park Lane. One of the UK’s best known TV faces, Hugh Dennis, comedian, actor and writer, will be joined on stage by Craig Bowman, General Manager, UK & Ireland to present the 18 awards.

The announcement of the finalists follows the first stage of judging carried out independently by The British Institute of Cleaning Science (BICSc). The judges have announced there was a 30 per cent increase in entries this year.

Neil Spencer-Cook, BICSc Group MD said: “The increase in applicants was great to see and the standard of entries very good. The focus on sustainability, teamwork and staff wellbeing were key factors in the entries.  The rise in strong entries in the diversity and inclusion category shows that the industry is ahead of the curve in this area.”

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 December and January, with the judges looking for innovation, staff training, and client relationships as the main criteria for assessment.

Metro Rod Drainage and Plumbing Survey 

Planned, proactive maintenance is a keystone of every FM strategy. However, with current cost constraints, there are many demands on Facilities Managers’ maintenance budgets. When it comes to drainage and plumbing, however, the expense of repairing blockages or dealing with flooding could vastly exceed the cost of preventative maintenance.

Given your role as an FM Professional, we would love to hear your views, challenges & experiences, and opinions on drainage & plumbing within the workplace. 

The survey will take just five minutes to complete and offers the chance to win an Amazon Gift Card Worth £100.
