Award-winning commercial cleaning company Mrs Bucket is continuing its success, this time working with Chwarae Teg to gain recognition as an ‘Achieving’ FairPlay Employer.

With bases in Wales and the South West, including Newport, Mrs Bucket is growing rapidly and wanted to ensure that staff were placed at the heart of expansion and development.

Working with Chwarae Teg Mrs Bucket was able to build on its already highly-effect communications and flexible working practices. By implementing recommendations from Chwarae Teg to ensure staff are central to company advancement and that working practices are inclusive, Mrs Bucket is more than fit for the future.

Eileen O’Callaghan, recruitment manager at Mrs Bucket, said: “We are delighted that we are really achieving for our staff and the company as a whole. It’s important to make sure that every member of our staff knows their worth, feels included and knows that they are valued and part of something special – for example of late we have set up an elite Covid-19 specialist cleaning team. We need to attract the best talent as we grow and make our current workforce feel invested in by the business. To ensure this happens all our managers have received training from Chwarae Teg on effective communications, performance management and learning.”

Gemma Littlejohns, senior business partner, Chwarae Teg, said: “Mrs Bucket have demonstrated a real commitment to their staff at all levels of the business and were open to the advice and recommendations we worked with them on. I know they will go on to achieve even greater things due to their dedication to inclusivity and modern ways of working.

“We work with private, public and voluntary sector clients across a wide range of industries. We concentrate on what organisations need the most, whether it is to improvements to flexible working, communication, working relationships, recruitment and more. Ultimately this is all fully funded and can deliver improved performance, reputation and an increased client base and output for businesses.”
