Our Ethical Policy
Ethics and equal opportunity statement
Our equal opportunities policy will help all those who work for us to develop their full potential and the talents and resources of the workforce will be utilised fully to maximise the efficiency of the organisation.
- Our main principles of work are responsibility, communication, fairness and cooperation. We continually seek to improve the quality, efficiency and effectiveness of our cleaning service.
- We pay our staff and subcontractors a fair living wage and offer personal and professional development opportunities.
- We do not overcharge our clients. You only pay for the work we have done.
- A percentage of our profit goes to environmental projects that aim to stop climate change and improve the living standard of people around the world without negatively affecting the environment.
- It is our policy to provide employment equality to all, irrespective of:
- Gender, including gender reassignment
- Marital or civil partnership status
- Having or not having dependants
- Religious belief or political opinion
- Race (including colour, nationality, ethnic or national origins, being an Irish Traveller)
- Sexual orientation
We are opposed to all forms of unlawful and unfair discrimination. All job applicants, employees and others who work for us will be treated fairly and will not be discriminated against on any of the above grounds.
Decisions about recruitment and selection, promotion, training or any other benefit will be made objectively and without unlawful discrimination. We recognise that the provision of equal opportunities in the workplace is not only good management practice; it also makes sound business sense.
We have made a living wage promise to all the people we work with, however as a growing business it take us longer to implement this policy.
In November 2018 the Living wage for London is £10.55 and for the UK – £8.50.
What is a living wage?
- An hourly rate set independently and updated annually.
- The Living Wage is calculated according to the basic cost of living in UK.
- Employers choose to pay the Living Wage on a voluntary basis.
- The Living Wage enjoys cross party support, with public backing from the Prime Minister and the Leader of the Opposition.
- Paying the Living Wage is good for business, good for the individual and good for society.
Our aim is to become a Living Wage Employer by 2020.
