Soft services and contract cleaning specialist Facilicom UK has secured the contract to service multiple Affinity Water sites across the Home Counties.
Facilicom will be responsible for daily and weekly cleaning of 16 Affinity Water sites, including its HQ at The Hub in Hatfield, Hertfordshire, and water testing labs and operational sites for engineering, water sourcing and distribution/pumping across Essex, Hertfordshire, Berkshire and Surrey.
The contract has also seen 30 employees transfer to Facilicom UK from the previous contractor, who will now "benefit from the company's people-focused culture".
Facilicom "believes that people are their prime asset - this is why they are a Living Wage Foundation Recognised Service Provider, and provide continuous training".
The company also offers every colleague access to a 24-hour employee assistance programme helpline, where they can confidentially discuss any issues that might affect their work performance, health and well-being.
Peter Buff, director of operations at Facilicom UK, said: "Like many utility companies, Affinity Water has a diverse and varied portfolio of locations, each with their own requirements and specialist cleaning needs. However, we are used to tailoring our services to the different needs of our diverse client base, and will ensure that we have all the systems in place to help keep our staff safe with correct operating procedures, whilst delivering a first-rate service."
The company is a large water-only supplier, providing an average of 900 million litres of water each day to a population of more than 3.6 million people.
