If you registered for the ISSA 2020 Virtual Show, you might have been a little overwhelmed by the sheer number of talks and presentations. I know I was. I didn’t know where to start. This article is intended to act as a taste of the actual presentation. Taking an hour out of your day to watch a video might not sound like a good use of your time as a business owner. So, by the time you read this, you might decide for yourself if you want the full experience. If you weren’t sure if you wanted to attend the virtual show itself, then this article will serve as a way for you to definitively decide.
In this presentation, Chris Stathakis shared how using the ISSA CIMS certification can make your business better. CIMS stands for Cleaning Industry Management Standard Certification. It is a rigorous certification to obtain and CIMS Standard includes Quality Systems, Service Delivery, Human Resources, Health, Safety, And Environmental Stewardship, Management Commitment, and Green Building. In Chris’s presentation, he goes into more depth as to what each of these entails.
Chris went on to share why you might want to become ISSA CIMS GB Certified. In summary, you can improve your corporate structure, grow your business, professionally develop your leadership Team, get bigger accounts, separate yourself from your competition, create a sustainable business model, and implement the Green Cleaning Program.
However, there were four main stakeholders that had to be taken into account if you were to successfully use the CIMS Certification. This is something you might have to consider when deciding on the CIMS Certification. Chris said customers, employees, vendors, and the business owner were the four groups that had a stake in the company obtaining a CIMS Certification.
Chris gave very enticing reasons as to why each of these stakeholders would actually benefit significantly from your company obtaining a CIMS Certification.
Some of these include customers gaining respect and confidence in your business and service, lowering employee turnover and attracting more professional candidates, vendors working harder for your business, and business owners creating a more sellable business. These are just a few of the reasons, but you have to see for yourself in this presentation!
