ServiceMaster Employee of the Year Award

Deeland Ltd t/a ServiceMaster’s Jaz named UK Employee of the Year!

Earlier this summer, Jaz Baxter, Supervisor at Severn Vale Housing, was invited to the annual National ServiceMaster UK Conference to receive the ServiceMaster Clean’s UK Employee of the Year Award.

The ceremony was held in a hotel in the Midlands, with Franchisees from right across the UK invited.  Jaz attended the ceremony with Nick to receive the much-coveted award.

Jaz joined us in 2012 and since then has been demonstrating a commitment that goes above and beyond in all areas of her work as Site Supervisor at Severn Vale, Tewkesbury.

Earlier this year Jaz was awarded the prestigious Avril Bannister Award.  This Award was set up in 2011 in honour of former ServiceMaster Clean by Deeland colleague, Avril Bannister, who sadly passed away following a battle with breast cancer.

Each year the award is presented to a member of staff who exhibits the same high standards in work and conduct, embracing the core ethics of ServiceMaster Clean by Deeland.

Jaz’s good work isn’t just recognised by our customers though, team members have praised Jaz’s ongoing hard work and positive attitude too, nominating her for two OSCARS last year in November and August.

Here are just a few selections of the feedback that were provided in Jaz’s OSCAR nominations.

“Jaz worked extremely hard trying to get the job completed on time whilst keeping a high standard approach. Jaz always had a smile on her face even though the job felt like it couldn’t be completed.”

“I know we are only a small section of the ServiceMaster team but Jaz always puts in over 100% effort and attention to make sure that the clients and ServiceMaster are happy.”

Nick says: “Jaz goes above and beyond so often that we have lost track of how many times she has helped out on contracts, smoothed the path with clients and stepped in when there are staff shortages, extra requirements and help needed. She is an example to us all and we are very fortunate to have her as part of the SM team.”

Gloucester City Homes and Severn Vale Housing Society

Deeland Ltd t/a ServiceMaster were recently awarded the combined cleaning services contract for Gloucester City Homes Severn Vale Housing Society, following a successful tender process.

The success of this tender and the acquisition of the contract has been down to a considerable team effort from the Communal Services Department who will manage it, plus others in New Business, Business Services/Operations, Human Resources and Accounts.
