Buitengewoon wins European Cleaning and Hygiene Award

201918Oct

Last night, the annual European Cleaning and Hygiene Awards (ECHA) were presented in London. The professional cleaning industry makes a significant contribution in many areas to the fields of healthcare, well-being, image and perception. The award for ‘Commitment to diversity’ was bestowed on our social enterprise Buitengewoon project because Facilicom Buitengewoon strives to ensure that everyone has the same opportunities, regardless of background or circumstances, such as a disability or long-term unemployment. Using an exceptional approach, Buitengewoon bridges the distance to a real job for ordinary people. That is ‘Buitengewoon’, or exceptional.

The Gom cleaning services division also reached the final. Gom was nominated for the Trash Roulette in the category ‘Best use of smart solutions by service providers’. The second nomination in the category ‘Rising star’ went to Lars Tubben (24), Campus Manager at Delft University of Technology. Despite missing out on winning the award, we are nevertheless proud of reaching the final.
