The standards of excellence in the professional cleaning and hygiene industry were celebrated at the European Cleaning & Hygiene Awards in Brussels, where we scooped not just one but two award wins! 

Our warmest congratulations to Martina Alexandrino – Head of Commercial – who won the ‘Rising Star award’, a very well deserved accolade.

Martina joined Principle in 2012 as a cleaning operative. It was soon spotted that she has the ability to handle a significant workload, with amazing efficiency, and a talent for working with numbers, and she was promoted to Head of Commercial. 

“Martina started her career with Principle as a cleaning operative and now, a few years on, is a key member of our Head Office team and point of contact for our clients, Martina has ultimate responsibility for ensuring each contract is set up and billed correctly, amongst other duties. She has the ability to deal with challenges in a calm manner, and the quality of her work is always to a superb standard. Martina has brought instrumental value to the company in a number of ways, and we are delighted to see her talent recognised. 

Martina truly is a rising star!”Terry Murphy, Managing Director of Operations

Well done Martina, we are absolutely delighted for you!

We are also proud and delighted to have won the ‘Best Use of Smart Solutions by a Service Provider’ category for PCS Connect at Landsec Dashwood House.

PCS Connect is our award-winning workflow system, is one of the key innovations driving our ambition to become the most sustainable cleaning company in the UK. The system was introduced at Dashwood House to improve daily operations, review daily schedules and the cleaning regime across the site, allocate tasks and team hours according to actual data and client needs.

Operative hours are allocated to the actual requirements rather than pre-scheduled duties so the team can action the areas that are being used the most in an efficient and effective response time, with all data available to review at any time by all parties.

A huge well done and congratulations to our clients and team!
