In the past, training of a custodial employee consisted of either handing a new employee a mop and stating – “Now you are a janitor”, or placing him with a buddy for a short breaking-in period. Less than a generation ago the suggestion to train a janitor would surely have been met with a laugh and the words “Who needs a janitor? All they do is sweep.” Today, training is essential. People are beginning to acknowledge that there is more to cleaning than just sweeping- much more.
We find that by working – SMARTER rather than – HARDER – quality and production can be increased. This is accomplished through the efficient use of modern equipment, materials and trained, skilled labour.
