The Australian cleaning industry: a clearer perspective
It is refreshing to hear that others in our industry can understand and relate to issues that are critical to how FM and the cleaning industry work together.
Connolly also acknowledges that “The cleaning industry in Australia is professionally trained and motivated. However, it needs to better communicate with its stakeholders to raise and improve the profile of the industry to enable greater respect for the services it provides. Not least, the cleaning and facilities management sectors also need to more readily partner with each other to improve outcomes for both industries.”
This is the major benefit of working with a group such as Havencab, because we offer a full suite of services, including commercial cleaning, to the facilities management industry. For facilities that are managed by us, owners do not have to worry about whether or not workers are directly employed and paid the correct wage. They will NOT receive a visit from the Fair Work Ombudsman representatives asking about subcontracted staff, nor penalties and prosecution for illegal wage scams.
