The Domestic Team (Retained & Sodexo) – County & Royal

Nomination: The Domestic Team (Retained & Sodexo) – County & Royal

This nomination is for the domestic team which provides the cleaning service across both County and Royal hospital sites.

The domestic team has more than demonstrated that they have a strong shared vision and together hold and use the Trust values. They have excelled within all services by working together, supporting each other, communicating effectively and safely and improving by listening, sharing opinions and ideas, and having a positive attitude.

During the COVID-19 pandemic staff have yet again shown true teamwork, dedication, resilience, a ‘can do’ attitude, commitment and compassion and have supported each other and others throughout this difficult, demanding and challenging time and continue to do so.

Some staff have changed their working shifts/hours, this includes Royal Stoke cleaning staff working nights instead of their day shift, and County cleaning re-introducing 24/7 cleaning. Staff have shown flexibility in respect of overtime commitments at short notice, changing their start, finish times and breaks to accommodate the increase and changes to service demand and needs, this has been met with nothing but cooperation and acceptance, to ensure continued service and for the safety of us all.

Nominated by:

Michael Brown, Head of Soft Facilities Management
