CIMS Certification Boosts Company Competitiveness

August 19, 2020

Tune in to one of the latest episodes of Straight Talk to learn how certification in ISSA’s Cleaning Industry Management Standard (CIMS) can help building service contracting (BSC) companies become more competitive in a tough marketplace.

CIMS outlines cleaning operations best practices for BSCs and in-house service providers. Christi Redfearn, the chief strategy officer with REDLEE/SCS Inc., said her company first explored CIMS when bidding for a client that required the certification. She realized that most of the requirements were things her company already did as part of their cleaning protocols—they just needed to document them properly to attain certification and give assurance to their clients that Redlee/SCS adheres to green cleaning best practices.

Earning CIMS certification also meant Redfearn’s company was prepared to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic because best practices for infection control were already among their standard operating procedures. The CIMS program can help BSCs differentiate themselves as a top-tier cleaning business ready to address and mitigate the risks related to the pandemic.
