CLEANING staff often go unrecognised - but not Slawomir Grzesik, a member of the cleaning team at the Mars Chocolate factory on Slough Trading Estate.

Last Wednesday he received a special award in recognition of his high standard of work.

For the first time the OCS UK cleaning company - which has a team that keeps the Mars factory in pristine condition - celebrated Thank Your Cleaner Day which is already popular in Australia and New Zealand.

As part of the celebrations Mr Grzesik received a special award from his leadership team for his 'can-do attitude, flexibility and willingness to go the extra mile'.

Working in partnership with clients including NHS Trusts, British Airways and Mars Chocolate UK Ltd, OCS UK has delivered awards to seven cleaners across the country who have been nominated by clients for going above and beyond, delivering exceptional service.

Bob Taylor, CEO of OCS Group in the UK, Ireland & Middle East said: “Our cleaners work day, night and weekends to keep our clients’ working environments clean, safe and hygienic. Thank Your Cleaner Day is our chance to come together with our clients to show how much we appreciate the work our cleaners do.”
