The Cleaning and Support Services Association has given its website a sleek new look and has added a ‘members only’ section offering essential tips and up to date industry knowledge.
The relaunch comes after the Association’s Open Evening in London that brought together contract cleaners and service providers from all across the UK.
CSSA Marketing Director, Sean Taylor, told the assembled delegates that the CSSA was going from strength to strength since it reformed just 18 months ago. He told the audience that membership was up, and the inaugural CSSA Awards held at the Cleaning Show in March had been a huge success.
Sean Nesbitt, employment lawyer at Taylor Wessing, delivered a compelling presentation on some of the key issues and threats the industry was currently facing. He talked about Brexit, GDPR, the growth of employment tribunals, and the new employment model of worker v employee, as seen in the ‘gig economy’ with firms such as Uber.
The evening offered the opportunity for delegates to talk openly about some of these big problems and discuss various solutions. It also allowed delegates the chance to network with some of the biggest movers and shakers in the contract cleaning sector.
Sean Taylor said the CSSA wants to help businesses of all sizes in the cleaning industry compete in a very uncertain world: “ The cleaning industry is facing an unprecedented period of change at the moment. There is Brexit, the threat of recession, GDPR, not to mention new technology and the continuous tightening of our margins. The CSSA is the only association that represents the cleaning industry at government level, so we can voice our concerns about these big issues at the top table. By joining the CSSA you know you’re part of the in-crowd and you’ll be armed with the best information to make the best business decisions.”
