Eco-friendly cleaner gets the go-ahead

Chequers have just added a new weapon to its arsenal in its war on dirt.

We have started using FreshClean powder, the UK’s most sustainable cleaning product. The environmental benefit of using the new product is part of Chequers’ commitment to reducing its carbon footprint.

At Chequers we’re always looking for new innovations in the industry, and if a new product can help us do that then we are always keen to try it out.

It has been trialled at a selection of our sites and due to the success of the product we are looking to use it across the board on all sites that we currently service.

We are very extremely proud of our environmental credentials and to sustainable cleaning and this is just another example of commitment.

Employee of the Month win for Josh!

We are pleased to announce that Josh Simpson, one of our apprentices, has won Employee of the Month for March.

Josh, is part of our ‘Chequers at Home’ scheme which is an initiative we are running with our client AmicusHorizon.  The staff working under the scheme are carrying out repairs and landscaping to AmicusHorizon street properties across the South East.  They are all residents of AmicusHorizon and are all apprentices enrolled on a 2 year Maintenance Operations NVQ with Croydon College.

Josh recently gave a presentation on his journey so far as an apprentice at the Power Breakfast event in March which was sponsored by ourselves, Natwest and Bryden Johnson. The event celebrated apprenticeships and how they have become invaluable in business and how much value they add, Josh was a fantastic example of this and inspired many of the businesses who attended the event.

We are passionate about developing talentand are extremely proud of Josh; he is an excellent advert for what can be achieved when given the right tools. Keep up the good work Josh!Employeeotmonth

Power Breakfast and Apprenticeship event at Croydon College

Today we attended the Power Breakfast at Croydon College which centered on Apprenticeships and how they add value to businesses. Both our manager who works closely with our apprentices Steve Hovell, and one of our apprentices Josh Simpson attended this event carrying out a presentation (pictures below). As one of the proud sponsors, we thoroughly enjoyed the morning and hope more businesses are encouraged to get involved in apprenticeship schemes!

Today, we also supported Croydon College in their ‘Croydon College Progression, Employability and Apprenticeship’ event. We held a stand in their exhibition hall, and enjoyed speaking to students about the variety of opportunities and apprenticeships we have within our organisation.

Two of our administration apprentices Joe Eastway and Arshia Khan (picture below) attended the event with us. Joe and Arshia are both carrying out their Level 3 Business Administration Apprenticeship at Croydon College.POWER2POWERPOWER1
