UniFirst Helps Eliminate the “Spring” in Spring Cleaning

WILMINGTON, Mass., March 28, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Spring—a time of year symbolic of warmer weather, blooming flowers, and starting fresh. This most welcome time of year, however, can turn into a harsh reality for some “spring cleaners,” especially building managers who may not have a comprehensive maintenance and facility service plan in place to help them stay on top of cleaning and maintenance needs all year long. But, why wait for spring to tackle facility maintenance chores that can build up if left unattended throughout the year?
A photo accompanying this announcement is available at http://www.globenewswire.com/NewsRoom/AttachmentNg/bb5c2044-af79-429c-b4f0-f1bed83ee889 Facility managers can virtually eliminate that once-a-year challenge and address facility needs on a routine basis with a managed facility service program to help ensure clean and well-maintained buildings throughout every season. A qualified facility service products provider can be essential to helping managers create a safer, cleaner, healthier, and more attractive work environment—while also reducing overall facility maintenance expenses and helping enhance their overall business image. “Spring is a great time of year for building managers to reevaluate the effectiveness of their facility service and maintenance programs,” said Adam Soreff, marketing director at UniFirst Corporation, a leading provider of uniforms and facility service programs throughout North America. “Businesses today cannot afford to run the risk of allowing the most basic facility maintenance or inventory restocking to go by the wayside, especially given that surveys have shown 50 percent or more of customers state that a poorly maintained restroom is reason enough not to patronize a business again. It’s best to have a quality service program in place to help managers provide a routine clean all year long and, in turn, eliminate the need for annual spring cleanings altogether.” An effective facility service program should start with a personalized needs assessment designed to identify areas that need regular cleaning and upkeep, such as floors and restrooms. This assessment also identifies appropriate cleaning and ancillary supplies needed on an ongoing basis, as well as proper product inventory levels, to maintain the facility and keep it in tip-top shape. Here are four recommended steps for a healthy and productive work environment. Prevent dirt and moisture from entering your facility. Scraper and walk-off mats placed at entrances help remove and capture shoe grime and outside dirt before it can enter the building. Over one pound of dirt can accumulate in one square yard of carpet in just one week, and vacuuming only removes about 10 percent of the dirt. If floor mats aren’t regularly deep-cleaned, they can become a source of dirt, not a barrier to it. Soiled mats should be picked up for professional laundering and returned on a regular schedule to help ensure cleanliness all year.Maintain clean floors, counters, and hard surfaces. Traditional and microfiber floor mops, towels, and wipers designed specifically to clean more effectively provide a “cleaner clean,” thereby reducing labor time and costs. Like floor mats, these products should also be picked up regularly for professional laundering by a qualified facility products provider to maintain their effectiveness.Equip your workplace with essential restroom and ancillary products. High-quality soaps, hand care products, and paper towels in handy portion-controlled dispensers with touch-free options, as well as toilet paper, air fresheners, trash can liners, and more show your employees and customers that you take hygiene, cleaning, and appearance seriously—all year long.Hire a qualified provider to service, inspect, deliver, and maintain facility service products and equipment. A reputable service provider should offer a year-long regular schedule for laundering and delivering all cleaning textiles, restocking required inventories, refilling cleaning solution dispensers, and ensuring all equipment is in proper working order, as well as replacing worn-out items as needed. When compared to buying retail and managing product supply on their own, businesses and their bottom lines can greatly benefit from partnering with a facility services provider that routinely delivers the highest quality items at the very best value so they consistently have what they need, when they need it. And also so they don’t find themselves subjected to the dreaded “spring” cleaning chores. In addition, a usage-based inventory program is optimal to allow businesses to pay only for the products they need. Maintenance programs that incorporate these steps help minimize the hassle and expenses related to purchasing, stocking, cleaning, and maintaining supplies and inventories. It is essential for any business to have peace of mind when it comes to overall facility maintenance. “Working with a qualified managed facility services provider makes good business sense and can benefit employees and customers alike,” added Soreff. “Not to mention the help it provides to eliminate the need for that often overwhelming traditional spring cleaning.” About UniFirst

UniFirst Wins Two 2017 Stevie Awards for Sales Training Programs

WILMINGTON, Mass., March 01, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- UniFirst (:UNF), an industry leader in the supply and servicing of uniforms, workwear, and facility service products throughout the U.S. and Canada, was presented with two Bronze Stevie® Awards in the Sales Training or Coaching Program of the Year category at the eleventh annual Stevie Awards for Sales and Customer Service. The awards were presented during a gala banquet on Friday, February 24, at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. More than 650 executives from around the world attended.
The Stevie Awards for Sales and Customer Service are the world’s top honors for customer service, contact center, business development and sales professionals. The Stevie Awards organizes several of the world’s leading business awards programs including the prestigious American Business AwardsSM and International Business AwardsSM. The first of the two UniFirst bronze-winning nominations centered on the creation and implementation of a new customer retention program called Account Management Education (AME) that teaches strategies and tools necessary to proactively build relationships with customers. “UniFirst continually strives to optimize our customer retention percentages as part of our ‘Customers for Life’ philosophy,” said Jeff Brandli, UniFirst sales training specialist. “Our location managers are among the best in the industry and we wanted to further enhance existing strategies with new and improved ways to strengthen customer relationships. In our first year of deployment, we noticed a marked improvement in customer retention—a direct reflection of program’s success.” UniFirst’s second bronze-winning entry was a new program the company developed to help the sales team improve telephone skills when talking to prospective customers. UniFirst created the Phone Skills Coaching Tool by tapping into existing technology resources to engage sales managers in automated “prompt and response” appointment setting attempts by telephone. “Developing successful telephone sales skills takes a great deal of practice,” said Julia Davis, UniFirst sales training specialist. “We believed that helping our sales teams began with ensuring our sales managers were confident about their own skills. UniFirst found a creative solution to help our sales managers increase their confidence on the phone and get excited about coaching and developing their teams. We created a program that not only helps them get the practice they need, but also leverages our existing technology resources for maximum value and efficiency. We have seen major improvements in our sales managers’ telephone skills along with an increase in appointments set by more than 90% when the practices are applied in the field.” More than 2,300 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were evaluated in this year’s competition, an increase of 10% over 2016. Finalists were determined by the average scores of 77 professionals worldwide, acting as preliminary judges. Entries were considered in 61 categories. More than 75 members of several specialized judging committees determined the Gold, Silver and Bronze Stevie Award placements from among the Finalists during final judging earlier this month. Finalists were determined by another 77 judges.
