Congratulations Janet, Winner of the 2018 ARCSI Chairman’s Award!
We are so proud to announce that Janet Swett is the winner of this year’s Association of Residential Cleaning Services International’s Chairman’s Award. This award recognizes outstanding performance of cleaning service office personnel, and we can’t think of a more appropriate winner! Our Operations Manager for over 9 years, Janet is absolutely essential at Clean and Simple. She also manages to be both a stabilizing and encouraging influence on both the office and the cleaning staff. For as long as I’ve worked at Clean and Simple, Janet has provided a sympathetic ear to employees. She is often a counselor and mentor as much as she is a manager. Former employees keep in touch and come to visit her frequently, sometimes bringing their families.
What does an Operations Manager do?
Operations Manager is a demanding position that requires taking on a lot of different roles in the company. Sometimes within the space of just a few minutes. Janet is part human resources, scheduler, accountant, salesperson, customer service, and quality control. And when the day is falling apart, and the office is on the brink of chaos, she never gets overwhelmed or frantic. Janet is the calm center around which our more excitable personalities orbit. This influence is never more apparent than when she takes a rare and well-deserved vacation. As soon as she’s left, the office feels off-kilter. According to Janet, she loves the fast pace and unique challenges each day presents. Her favorite part of the job, however, is the opportunity to work in a woman-owned and woman-centered company.
Please join us in celebrating Janet this month! She will be going to the ARCSI/ISSA convention in Dallas with Stacie at the end of October to accept her award, and we will be posting tons of pictures for it on social media, so don’t forget to follow us on Facebook. Congrats again, Janet! We’re so appreciative of all that you, and so happy to have you as part of Clean and Simple Cleaning.
