Accreditations Recertified!

Accreditations Recertified!

Last month the team here at NECS went through their annual audits with the SGS (General Society of Surveillance), one of the world’s leading inspection, verification, testing and certification companies and our very own external accreditation body, and we’re recertified for all 3 standards that we hold. Not only that, but we have also been transitioned from our old standards to brand new refreshed standards.

ISO

Head over to our accreditations page, you will see that our old ISO 9001: 2008 standard has been replaced with a brand new ISO 9001: 2015 standard and our old ISO 14001: 2004 standard has been swapped out for the latest ISO 14001: 2015. This means we are once again up to date and fully compliant with relevant Quality and Environmental factors and latest ISO accreditations, so you can be confident in NECS and our cleaning services, whatever your requirements.

That’s great but what are they?

ISO 9001 – Quality Standard

The ISO 9001 quality management accreditation was awarded to us as evidence that the NECS team have the ability to provide services that meet customer requirements consistently. As this is one of the world’s most widely recognised quality management standards, it outlines ways in which we have been able to achieve and demonstrate consistent performance and service.

ISO 14001 – Environmental Standard

As an internationally trusted standard, ISO 14001 outlines how to put an effective environmental management system in place. This, in turn, helps us provide our cleaning services to more and more customers across the UK, thanks to the standard being specially designed to help businesses remain commercially successful, without overlooking environmental responsibilities. The ISO 14001 accreditation provides the support and evidence that we need to continually meet the needs and expectations of those who require our services, allowing us to meet increasingly high customer expectations of corporate responsibility as well as legal or regulatory requirements.

Overall

As you may already know, ISO accreditation is seen as a significant step in demonstrating that a product will always meet the expectations of the customer, and meets certain safety criteria. In other words, it is a symbol of credibility that is not handed out every day, and we are happy to be re-certified to continue the work we do across the country, every day.

BS

BS OHSAS 18001 – Health & Safety Standard

BS OHSAS 18001 is an accreditation that we have also been re-certified with, though as an updated standard has not been released yet, you will still be able to find our BS OHSAS 18001: 2007 certificate on our accreditation page.

This standard is put together to set out the minimum requirements for occupational health and safety management practices. The standard helps ensure that the NECS team are safe at all times in whatever environment they are working in.

With a broad range of services and a whole host of testimonials from many happy clients to prove our accreditations aren’t just for show, we have everything you need to meet your requirements and maintain a pleasant working environment.

An ‘All In One’ NECS

NECS: ‘All In One’ Cleaning Services

If you are a large commercial company and have recently had construction work, redecorations or other messy jobs performed on your premises, you will understand the time and frustration that can go into sorting out and managing multiple cleaning and maintenance services.

Here at NECS, we provide our clients with a variety of professional cleaning services to meet their specific requirements – from windows cleaning to washroom services to grounds maintenance, and all of the other tedious cleaning tasks that need to be carried out in between. That being said we are going to discuss why investing in a professional cleaning service is the smartest move for your business, no matter how big or small you are!

It can save you time and money.

Did you know that employing a commercial cleaner is the most cost effective option for your business? Each business has varied cleaning requirements, from cleaning inside your commercial premises, to cleaning the outside. You can imagine the amount of time and effort that goes into managing several different cleaning providers to meet all of those individual needs. And then of course there’s the hassle of sending emails here, there and everywhere – it becomes easy to lose track of who is doing what. So when you have one company doing all of the dirty work for you (literally), it makes keeping track of things 100% easier. Just imagine what you could do with all of that extra time! Plus, as well as saving you time, managing your cleaning services through one source is guaranteed to save you money too.

Here at NECS, we know better than anyone how to best meet the needs of all our customers. With five offices located across the UK, we have been delivering straightforward, tailored cleaning services for over ten years, that are guaranteed to save you time and money saving.

A more productive workforce.

Leaving your cleaning services to several different providers can not only get confusing for you, but also for the cleaners themselves due to lack of communication and understanding of what was done and when.

Fulfilling your cleaning requirements under NECS provides you with a trained team of cleaning professionals who work together, and communicate with each other to ensure you receive nothing but high-quality services consistently through everything they do.

Easy to manage.

Following on from the ease of our workforce being able to communicate with each other simply, this ease is also accessible to you too. So, instead of sending emails all over the place, you can address all of your queries and concerns in one email all at once, and put your mind to rest.

The beauty of using NECS to fulfil your cleaning requirements is the simplicity of our cleaning contracts. Get your cleaning done without even lifting a finger, with one contact, one invoice and one team to manage.

With a broad range of services and a whole host of testimonials from many happy clients to back up our words, we have everything you need to meet your requirements and maintain a pleasant working environment.

Want to save time and money on your cleaning services? Give us a call on 0800 328 8933 or drop us a line at info@necsuk.com. You can also reach us on Facebook and Twitter.

How Cleaning Facilities Management Services Add Value To An Organisation

Over the years, NECS have worked hard to become a leading national provider of cleaning and facilities management services. We’ve worked for a long time with a range of industries such as industrial cleaning, office cleaning, health care and education.

The main aim of facilities management services is to control and reduce costs, by organising separate activities in a more straightforward and efficient manner. Due to the financial crisis back in 2008, we saw more and more clients wanting to move towards a more streamlined approach to their cleaning and supportive maintenance services. Of course we were more than happy to evolve as a company in line with our clients’ new requirements – actually managing to solidify our business successes amidst a time of financial worry and uncertainty.

On a day to day basis (or as and when you require us to), our facilities management team will enable you to provide a safe and spotlessly clean working environment for both your staff and visitors alike, which is a key factor in your business’ success.

Another benefit to our facilities management services is that since we’re keeping an eye on everything for you on a frequent basis, we can proactively identify any smaller maintenance issues for you before they become a big problem. By highlighting any minor concerns that may need quick attention and repair we can help you save the company money. Small repairs often will incur a small fee, whereas a large issue may result in the business needing to be closed, or a part of the venue cordoned off for repairs causing loss of potential earnings – or worse still, lead to an injury of a staff member or visitor.

Through our many years of experience, we have learned that for the industries we deal with, it’s no longer viable to source separate companies for different tasks. NECS UK handles everything, meaning that you don’t have to. Over the years we’ve built up an army of approved and vetted subcontractors to assist us in the provision of all supporting facilities management services such as window cleaning, feminine hygiene and washroom services – all of which are vetted to ensure they meet our stringent quality, environmental and safety regulations under our ISO accreditations.

We use purely an incentive-based management system, whereby our managerial staff members are encouraged to consistently provide a level of service that leaves clients overjoyed so that they themselves can benefit directly. We find that by providing our managerial staff members with financial motivation, we are ensured that we provide consistently excellent solutions and we maintain a high standard of service – which only benefits you!

Outsourcing your facilities management to NECS means that you have just the one company managing everything on your behalf – we deal with everything so that you don’t need to! And, you also avoid having to deal with a number of different companies and different invoices piling up and confusing the accounts team!

If you’re looking for a straightforward solution to what is currently a complex situation, dealing with a plethora of various companies providing you with different services you need, get in touch with NECS UK, and we’ll discuss your requirements and produce you a tailor-made, bespoke package.

We’d love to hear from you – please give us a call on 0800 328 8933, 0191 250 3500 or drop us an email at info@necsuk.com and provide us with a brief description of your current situation – the more information you’re able to provide us at an early stage, the more accurate the quote we can provide you with!

A North East Focus: How We Support Our Client’s Goals With Our Facilities Management Services

NECS Cleaning Services has been an established facilities management service provider for one of the largest engineering firms in the UK.

Back in January of 2009, following some refurbishments at one of their offices in Newcastle, an interested client got in touch with the team here at NECS and asked if we would help them clean up the dust and debris that was left behind by the refurbishment company they had been working with. We gratefully said yes, and with customer satisfaction in mind we set out to make sure that (as with all our clients) they received the best service possible from our highly-trained and experienced team.

After completing the job and leaving our client impressed with the result, our impeccable level of service and the quality of our staff, they soon got in contact again with an incredible contract offer that would allow us to deliver regular cleaning services at this office which was too good for us to turn down.

After working with this large North East based engineering firm at their Newcastle office for a considerable amount of time, it wasn’t long before we developed a strong working relationship with the client and we were offered the opportunity to not only provide their Newcastle office with our cleaning services but to begin to also cover their other venues across the UK.

Through the many years of working with the client, we continued to add more and more of their estate to our portfolio. We are proud to say that the NECS team now provide our cleaning services to all of their premises on a daily basis, which spans across six companies and eight different locations.

The client receives all of the regular bespoke services that we provide along with a few additional services including washroom products and solutions, consumables supply, janitorial cover, scheduled window cleaning as well as deep cleans which cover builders cleans, carpet cleans and high level cleans.

Our team has had a blast supplying this client with our contract cleaning, facilities management and many other cleaning services for more than eight years across the UK, and we look forward to eight more!

We have become a cleaning company that is recognised for our quality services across the UK, thanks to the work put in from each of our teams. As we hold customer satisfaction and retention as our number one goal, our team keeps motivated to ensure that every clean is just as good as the last. Essentially – the better our teams do for you, the better we can do for them. This is how we guarantee top quality services, from start to finish, each and every time.

We’d love to hear from you with any enquiries you may have. You are able to contact us at Head Office on 0191 250 3500, freephone on 0800 328 8933, or by sending an email to info@necsuk.com and someone will be in touch with you as soon as possible to discuss your initial requirements and begin to form a wonderful working relationship!

Facilities Management Services

Our Facilities Management Services

Facilities Management Services

 

NECS are a leading and trusted provider of facilities management services to hundreds of companies across the UK, boasting managerial excellence and your vision in sight we ensure that our job is completed to the highest quality physically possible.

 

Over the years our facilities management packages have been tailored and perfected. From around 2008, we started to work with more and more office and industrial clients along with the bar and restaurant sector we began with when we first started. Working with new clients meant that we needed to adapt our offering so we could meet the requirements of all our clients. We began providing washroom services to existing clients, and over the years have built up successful partnerships with a variety of suppliers (from window cleaners, to feminine hygiene providers, to pest control suppliers and grounds maintenance).

 

The introduction of our facilities management services and improved management systems enabled us to gain our ISO accreditation in 2014, and we now assess all of our subcontractors annually to ensure they are continuously offering the same (if not improved!) high quality standards, environmental consideration and healthy and safety that we do here at NECS.

 

So, What Do We Do?

The facilities management services provided at NECS are classified in two main areas: cleaning and maintenance. Although, as customer satisfaction is what we deem the most important judge of our services and staff, we’re always willing to discuss your requirements when looking to settle upon the perfect tailored plan to resolve your current cleaning catastrophes. We want to relieve the burden of maintaining your workplace alone, and let you focus on the task at hand.

 

Cleaning:

 

Windows and Blinds

Our commercial cleaners will not only clean the glass inside and out, but we can also clean the frames, window sills or external cladding if necessary. We mostly carry this out using our reach and wash system, but where required we will use ladders or scissor lifts and booms for larger sites or restricted access.  We’ll also give your blinds a wash when required so that you can dazzle your clients with fresh and crisp white

Washroom and Feminine Hygiene

We ensure that you’re always stocked up on washroom consumables such as hand towels, soap, toilet rolls, air fresheners, electric hand driers and feminine hygiene products.

Daily cleaning and Janitorial Services

Our contract cleaners carry out daily cleaning tasks such as vacuuming, dusting, desk cleaning (don’t worry, we clean around your documents so nothing gets misplaced!), telephone cleaning, and emptying bins for you so you come in to a fresh and sanitary work environment each day. We also carry out janitorial tasks such as mopping, kitchen cleaning and bathroom cleaning.

Outdoor/ Car Park Cleaning

We’ll remove litter and debris from your outdoor space or car park, to ensure that you give the right impression to your customers when they arrive.

Maintenance:

 

Handyman Services

We will carry out basic repairs on your behalf, move furniture to rearrange your workspace, replace light bulbs and even assist with internal decoration if it is something you need.

Grounds Maintenance

We’ll ensure that your grounds are kept looking nice and are regularly maintained, such as cutting the grass, weeding and spraying the car park clear of muck and general grime.

Pest Control

We offer various service packages with pre-programmed visits to manage your pests, covering anything from rats, mice and cockroaches to ants, flies or wasps. We provide pest registers and reports along with  online access to account and location plans, including a set number of visits to your site per year dependent on the size of the area. We’ll also respond to emergency call outs if required!

PAT Testing

We are certified PAT (portable appliance testing) testers, meaning that we can check and approve your appliances as safe to use so that there are reduced safety hazards around the office.

 

We:

  1. Help maintain and manage buildings for our clients to ensure that everything is sanitary and in perfect working condition,to ensure benefits for all the people who use them.
  2. Are as accommodating as possible, and will work with you to settle on the perfect bespoke solution. We like to ensure that we understand your specific needs to do our small part to support your business goals whilst achieving our own key business goal: our clients’ satisfaction.
  3. Aim to streamline your outgoings and management time, whilst reducing inefficiency or the crossover which inevitably happens when you have multiple companies working for you, to provide cleaning and facilities management services by being the perfect company who provides it all.

The NECS Football Kit

NECS Help Wallsend Community U14s Clean Up On The Pitch

Sponsoring Local Youth Teams

 

Check out the NECS football kit! Over the summer, we were in contact with the fantastic head coach of the Under 14s Team at Wallsend Community FC, who, being growing lads, were in need of brand spanking new kits. We’re strong believers in supporting your local youth teams to give them the best chance to succeed, early on in their sports career!

When one of our wonderful area managers (and self proclaimed ‘Football Mam’) heard about this, she took opportunity with both hands and suggested that our NECS Cleaning Team lent  a helping hand in getting the Wallsend under 14s Team a new kit… complete with our crisp and striking logo and company name emblazoned onto the front. Avid football fans ourselves, of course we agreed that this was a wonderful idea. We’re now the proud sponsor of the Under 14 team of Wallsend Community FC!

After all, we all know how messy teenagers can get. Add in a mixture of mud, grass and the exhilaration of absolutely wiping the floor with the competition and we’re sure that the changing rooms and facilities could definitely do with NECS’ cleaning expertise. It seemed like the perfect match!

The boys play 18 games per season in a pinpoint league, which is made up of teams from all across the North East, ranging from Berwick to Otterburn and Newcastle, to North Shields and even Blythe.

We recently received a breakdown of their progress so far and we really pleased that the new kit is bringing them luck along with their masses of talent.

The boys played their first game at home versus Ashingdon, and won 6 – 3; a fantastic result! They’ve since won 4 games in their new kit. It’s great to receive the reports of their successes as they compete in more games and improve upon their performance each time.

We’ll keep you posted with any exciting news about the team showing off their skills in their NECS football kit!

Celebration

Our Ten Year Anniversary

NECS’ 10 Year Anniversary

 

Well, October 2016 marks our 10 year anniversary of being a Ltd company. We have seen a lot of changes during this time, and it’s been a hell of a ten years to look back on!

In 2006, when I started out as a sole trader and our team of office cleaners in Newcastle took their first steps, we had a total of 4 cleaners and 2 contracts for commercial cleaning in Newcastle and Carlisle. 10 years in, we’ve amassed a team of approximately 200 cleaners, 4 supervisors, 4 area managers and Head Office staff of 6. We’ve certainly grown a lot in this time.

 

Like any company, we’ve seen our ups and downs, but we always continue to soldier on… we’ve made it this long!

Below are just 5 of our main highlights over the last 10 years:

  1. Purchasing our office near Cramlington was a key highlight for us, as this gave us a permanent base, and helped us to grow our Head office and Support Team.
  2. We then expanded into two new areas – providing contract cleaning in The Midlands and Scotland. Seeing our little company grow from a cleaning staff count of 4, to an employee count able to stretch further afield was a huge success, heading us towards our goal of national coverage.
  3. We grew our business with our largest single client from 1 office, with 1 cleaner to 25 cleaners operating across 11 factories and offices in the North East.
  4. During this time period, we have also achieved (and maintained!) our ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and our OHSAS 18001, establishing ourselves as market leaders in this respect.
  5. Over the last 5 years, we have managed to increase our turnover 3 fold, through our marketing efforts combined with high levels of customer satisfaction and retention. 

 

I believe that how we have dealt with our lower points is what has determined our success. The biggest hurdle for NECS over the last decade was the economic meltdown in 2008, as it unfortunately forced a lot of our clients to go out of business or at least cut back on their company spend. To ride out the storm, we increased our sales effort and began to target different sectors which had been less affected by the recession. Though potentially a slightly risky move at the time, we invested even more money in our North East cleaning company, and the end result was that after a rocky 3 years, we had created a stronger and more streamlined business, operating in a more resilient sector, providing contract cleaners in Leeds, Newcastle, Manchester, Birmingham, Northumberland, Cramlington and Edinburgh.

 

Being a cleaning company we’ve had our fair share of laughs over the years as we get to work with a whole variety of different clients and sectors – anything from cleaning office buildings, to end of tenancy student lets (I mean, can you imagine some of the states we find!), to nightclub toilets on a Sunday morning… rather us than you, I suppose! So, nothing really shocks us anymore.

My personal favourite job we carried out was for the St Thomas Parish Church. Whilst I loved the fact we got to appreciate the stunning church situated in County Durham, this wasn’t the only reason this was my favourite task! They got in touch with us, explaining that they’d been experiencing some slight issues with a build up of (make sure you’re seated!) a total of about 800 years worth of dust and debris that was beginning to fall on the parishioners. Not ideal. 

 

Our Employee of the Decade

 

We wouldn’t be where we are today without all of our staff members’ continued and unfaltering dedication to the company, so we wanted to take a moment to say a huge thank you to all of our ever expanding NECS family. Our employee’s positive attitudes and hard working nature is consistently reflected in the feedback we receive from our happy clients – making it a genuine pleasure to work with every team.

 

Our Employee Of The Decade has been with us for a total of 6 years now, since we launched our North West business back in 2010. Having started off working for us as cleaning staff, he soon progressed to mobile support cleaner as he was willing to travel. As our customer base grew in and around Manchester, our Employee Of The Decade demonstrated his capabilities and was soon promoted to Supervisor, and then Area Manager for the North West not long after. He now manages a total of 60 cleaning staff, keeps the team motivated and in high spirits and is a credit to thEmployee of The Decadee company.

 

Whilst all of our managers have genuinely incredible work ethics and abilities, and consistently show their dedication to their teams and the company, we’ve chosen to award the lovely Darren Street with the accolade of Employee of the Decade, as he has come the furthest in his career progression since he became an employee six years ago.

 

 

 

Future Plans for NECS

 

We’re now looking to further our North East cleaning service’s success with increased marketing efforts and consistent maintenance of and, where possible, improvement of services provided. We’ll be transitioning to the new ISO standards in Summer 2017, to keep ourselves up to date and providing high quality work every time. By 2020, we’d like to be working nationally, so watch this space.

 

Thank you again to all dedicated staff members and for the consistent support we receive from our lovely clients.
