Leading the facilities services industry in cleaning operations and green cleaning.
As a leading facilities services and management company, C&W Services is dedicated to providing its clients with cutting-edge cleaning operations. That’s why we’re proud to announce that we are both Cleaning Industry Management Standard (CIMS) and CIMS-GB certified. In fact, we’re one of the few facilities management companies operating nationwide that is CIMS certified with honors.
What is CIMS?
Designed and upheld by The World Wide Cleaning Industry Association (ISSA), CIMS is the first consensus-based management standard that outlines the primary characteristics of a successful, quality facilities management organization. This designation helps companies stand out in the industry, and it communicates to those looking for facilities solutions which companies are prepared to deliver consistent, quality service. Additionally, the CIMS-GB certification identifies the companies that have comprehensive green cleaning programs that are based on LEED: EB O&M green-cleaning criteria.
In order to receive CIMS certification, a company must undergo a comprehensive assessment performed by an ISSA-accredited third party. This assessment includes a documentation review and a comprehensive on-site inspection that ensures that a company is implementing best practices in six areas: quality systems; service deliveries; human resources; management commitment; green building; and health, safety, and environmental stewardship.
Companies that are CIMS certified aren’t just leaders in best practices. By implementing an effective management framework, they are also helping their clients save money by increasing efficiency. According to ISSA, implementing CIMS can lead to more than $400,000 in annual savings for a site.
