ZAVVERS COMMERCIAL CLEANING
The quality assurance is a fundamental for all work undertaken by the Zavvers. It will always be the objective of the Company to achieve the highest degree of quality in its products and services commensurate with requirements as defined and agreed in the client's specification. We know as a fact that, the biggest strength that we should have in order to achieving this objective successfully, is concentration of development and retention of competent human resources through a proper management system. Every employee in our organization will be clearly informed about organization’s rules, regulations, procedures standards, rewards and punishments which are practiced at Zavvers, during the initial induction program at their work commencement.
We believe creating and retaining a competent employee is the best investment that a company could do more than any other investment you do on human resources or on equipment. As an award paying employer, we always value hard working and value adding employees within the organization and we are legally and ethically bound to provide, every benefit stated on the cleaning award as it is and more for the highest standard of quality that we are expecting them to provide in return, as to motivate and appreciate their work.
In order to ensure continuity of performance and also to develop competency, we have established and maintain an effective Quality Assurance Program through internal Quality Assurance audits which the standards are enforced through our own management inspections. Main purpose behind on those internal audits, is to recognize how well our standards are maintained and also to determine how competent the staff is to carry our values, especially under no supervision. Therefore these audits are carried out with and without notice to our employees in randomly or regular basis. We believe this system works extremely well to motivate our employees, consequently they work more efficiently and effectively to produce the highest quality standards or will seek assistance to improve.
Zavvers always encourage our employees provide a cleaning service with absolute professionalism and passion with an attitude to provide more during the allocated time. Passion and positive attitudes always lead towards best result and that will enable us to deliver services up to or exceeding customer expectations. Eventually the effort will lead everyone to cover the scope of the contract and to meet the performance requirements of the agreement successfully with a highest standard.
Each project site will be allocated a contract manager and a supervisor who would be responsible for maintaining the communication with customer, managing cleaning personals by allocating them for shifts and monitoring the personal and corporate standards are maintained, maintaining adequate stock of cleaning materials all the time and most importantly to assure cleaning service is up to the standard that is specified by customer.
We intend to use accelerator cc as our contract management software with other extensions to stay connected with our clients in a convenient way. Accelerator cc is designed specifically for the cleaning industry to manage accounts, sales, jobs, work orders, schedules, inspections, employee management and supplies in one place. As to maintain a highest standard of cleanliness within all our work sites, we will be undertaking site inspections weekly basis and provide rating on each tasks as per the cleaning inspection checklist. Audit results are input directly on to the system by our site supervisors using their mobile phones or i-pads provided. Results of audits are reviewed randomly and a monthly report will be generated along with other reporting requirements such as,
Log of issues and action/resolutions
Employee login history
Cleaning service schedule
Consumption of consumable products
As accelerator cc will allow us to record, manage and retrieve all the relevant information in one place.
Current implemented system of Zavvers to manage WHS, requires manual data entry, we have identified that risk of losing information and documents to be outdated, could cause serious issues on maintain accurate, real time information. Therefore, Zavvers will be using Myosh software as their WHS management system, in order to recording and maintaining every information which is related to WHS, OHS, Risks and work place injuries. This will enable us to record and maintain up to date real time information and to communicate any WHS issues to the team instantly.
