Kimberly-Clark Professional has announced the return of the Golden Service Awards, considered the pinnacle awards for the cleaning industry, to be held on May 23, 2024 at the London Hilton, Park Lane.
Created more than 30 years ago, the biennial Golden Service Awards are one of the most prestigious events and sought-after accolades in the facilities management (FM) and cleaning industry across a variety of sectors, including healthcare, retail, manufacturing, hospitality, education, leisure and office.
“Behind the scenes, our cleaning and FM teams continue to make our workspaces and our public venues safe despite difficult times for all of us,” said Craig Bowman, General Manager for the UK and Ireland at Kimberly-Clark Professional. “We can go to work and attend events with our families and friends trusting that the many cleaners and FMs keep these locations safe. We are delighted to announce the launch of the Kimberly-Clark Professional Golden Service Awards 2024 where we will acknowledge and celebrate the achievements of our industry colleagues.”
Entries to The Kimberly-Clark Professional Golden Service Awards 2024 will be open until 27th October 2023 for UK and Irish companies. In all, there are 18 categories that recognize excellence and the achievement of the highest standards in the sector.
To honour the achievements of the industry in diverse and challenging times, Kimberly-Clark Professional has announced two new categories: a ‘Social Impact Award’ recognizing positive impact on people and communities, and a ‘Cleaning Team of the Year Award’ for outstanding contributions. All finalists will be announced in December 2023.
“We are very grateful to all our sponsors that support the Kimberly-Clark Professional Golden Service Awards and continue to help us make this special industry event possible. It is our flagship event in the UK and Ireland, and we look forward to discovering how the cleaning and FM industry continues to excel in reaching incredible new heights,” commented Bowman.
The sponsorship program will run from the summer 2023 and culminate at the awards ceremony in May 2024. Sponsors will have access to extensive public relations and social media coverage, excellent branding opportunities and world-class networking.
