Spotless’ innovative water saving program, trialled within their Western Australian public housing contract, has demonstrated the potential savings of millions of litres of water (and dollars) each year for The Housing Authority (THA) of Western Australia.
The rise and rise of drone technology continues to revolutionise the way we live, work and play. Within the facilities management industry, drones are changing the way we conduct inspections and manage assets. At Spotless we’ve embraced the use of this innovative technology to create efficiencies and value for our clients, reduce risk and enhance the safety of our workplaces.
Managing company assets in an effective and sustainable manner is critical in today’s world, where shareholders and investors are demanding more out of their assets. As an organisation that delivers a range of diverse integrated services for hundreds of public and private clients across Australia and New Zealand, it’s vital for Spotless to have a strategic asset-management plan that is strongly aligned to key business objectives such as increasing reliability and reducing facilities’ management costs.
As one of the founding members of the Spotless Innovation Team, I have had an interesting journey understanding the world of facilities management at one of Australia’s largest service providers.
International Women’s Day provides all of us at Spotless with the opportunity to reflect on the extraordinary contribution that women have made to the success of our company and our community. CEO Dana Nelson reflects on this year’s theme #PressforProgress and where Spotless has moved the needle on gender parity.
At Spotless we support our employees and our customers to make healthier choices every day, through Nudge, our health and lifestyle program. Nudge recognises both our duty of care as an employer of choice, and the positive business impacts of a healthy staff and satisfied customers.
Spotless is the only national operator of health care linen services Australia-wide. With water being a critical component of our laundries operations, water conservation is one of the biggest environmental challenges we face. As industry leaders, we need to be strategic — and successful — in reducing our environmental impact.
