Rapid Superstar Award
When Jeff and Paul started Rapid back in 1999, they spent the first 12 months gaining a full understanding of all areas of the business. Very quickly they realised the importance of having a team of motivated cleaners.
With that in mind, every quarter we invite each Contracts Manager to nominate one cleaning operative within their team, who deserves to be crowned the Rapid Superstar.
Although every nominee receives a letter and gift to thank them for their hard work and dedication to the company, only one cleaning operative is chosen as the Rapid Superstar. The chosen individual is invited into head office to receive their award and gift.
We organise regular company meetings for our head office team. These meetings are not only for training purposes, but a place for employees to give feedback and ideas on how we can progress and improve. These valuable gatherings also give senior management an opportunity to publicly recognise excellent performance.
A few years ago we introduced a scheme whereby head office staff have the opportunity to vote for one of their colleagues, to win the title of Employee of the Season. They are encouraged to nominate a colleague who they feel has gone above and beyond in their role. The winner then receives a prize as a reward for their hard work.
At Rapid, we believe in rewarding employees who show commitment and dedication to the company. We are keen to promote internally and in fact several members of our senior management team have worked their way up through the ranks, having started out as a cleaning supervisor.
Bernadette Cunningham – ELE International
“We always find Bernie extremely friendly and happy to go the extra mile for us, whether it is to do some urgent cleaning (especially when we have important visitors coming to our offices) or, as proved recently when we had our carpets cleaned, happy to come back to the office to lock the premises and set the alarm. She is always very security conscious which obviously puts our minds at rest!”
Lester Ronnie Garcia – Jakks Pacific
“Ronnie is conscientious and has a keen eye for detail. I hear nothing but good feedback from our office and the overseas visitors we have. When we have VIPs over, Ronnie turns up for work in a shirt and tie to make a good impression. He is an exceptional person who lights up our office at 3:30pm 3 days a week and we would be lost without him.”
Ian Connolly – PEI Genesis
“Ian is always on-time, friendly & very enthusiastic about his work, with a ready smile. He works hard & is very conscientious about the cleaning duties Rapid Clean has on site.”
Svetlana Savcenko – Wise Production
“Svetlana is absolutely amazing. She is super friendly, goes above and beyond, is organised and someone we class as a part of our working family.”
Brian Down – Fenwick Hospital
“Brian is certainly the best cleaner we have had, reliable, thorough and honest. He is always punctual and is very friendly with all the staff and tenants.”
Maxwell Ampaw – The Pines School
“Nothing is too much trouble for him and his good humour is a welcome tonic at the end of the day. He is also a great learner and completely deserves the Superstar Award.”
Susan Williams – The Thames Club
“Sue is a fantastic asset to the cleaning team here at The Thames Club without her organisation and hard work the cleaning team would not function. Not only does she turn up on time, but she will clean whatever is needed, no job is too big or small! It makes it a lot easier for me to do my job as she will also communicate any issues I have not spotted around the club and is very welcoming with members.”
Ronald Kalule – Palmerston Accountants
“Ronald has worked at our company for quite a few years and has really made a difference. He is ultra reliable and anything pointed out to Ronald is always rectified immediately.”
