BICSc NI Nation award winners
08 October 2019
Friday 6 September marked the BICSc NI Nation Awards. Held at Belfast City Hall, the event showcased all that was great about the cleaning industry and the people within it.
It was an occasion to be remembered for the finalists and winners of Cleaning Operative of the Year as they celebrated their achievements.
21 finalists were nominated for the awards, with 7 categories from different sectors within the cleaning industry (Manufacturing, Healthcare, Office, Hospitality, Retail, Education and Supervisor Recognition).
7 winners were chosen from the different sectors and an overall winner was named.
Colm McGrath, BICSc NI Nation chairman, said: “The BICSc NI Nation Cleaning Operative of the Year & Supervisor Recognition awards are growing each year, entries have increased by 50% on last year’s entries. Sincere thanks goes to all the nominators, nominees & most of all the finalists who made it extremely difficult to pick a winner in each category, it was a packed out event with over 120 attendees.
"This year the BICSc NI Nation moved from the normal morning slot at the prestigious Belfast City Hall to a mid-afternoon slot which was followed by ‘After Party Celebrations’ which was hugely successful, as there was complimentary food/cocktails/buckets of beer & wine on arrival, thank you to our continually loyal band of sponsors Consumable Products, Carey Floorcare, Zenith Hygiene, Diversey, BUNZL, Kimberley Clarke & BICSc NI Nation.
"Congratulations to all the winners & Rhonda Smyth, Aramark on her overall success in being the 2019 BICSc NI Nation Cleaning Operative of the year.”
