Keeping it safe and clean, behind the scenes

As the COVID-19 crisis unravelled throughout Australia, Pickwick’s network of cleaners mobilised to further protect essential service providers across the nation.

Frontline staff across many industries play a vital role in protecting all of us from the impact of COVID-19 and ensuring the continual supply of essential goods and services. But who helps protect them?

We do.

From hospitals and research laboratory’s, to public transport, shopping centres and schools, many of our clients provide essential services and have relied on Pickwick’s qualified cleaning teams and specialised infection control cleaning services to further safeguard their workplaces, workforce and ultimately their operations during these uncertain times.

Pickwick’s dedicated South Australian cleaning crews have shown clients they really can Count on us to keep their workplaces clean and safe.

In recent months, through preventative and routine touch-point cleaning of offices, medical centres and warehouses, our cleaning specialists have helped lower the risk of infection transmission and disrupted services, while boosting confidence and peace of mind among front line workers and other stakeholders.

They’ve also worked hard to protect our most loved and vulnerable, including at residential care homes across the state, where Pickwick has become an important and welcomed addition to these communities.

Cleaners play an integral role in our daily lives and are essential during times of outbreaks. Follow us on Linkedin to hear more about the work Pickwick’s everyday heroes do in the fight against COVID-19.

For almost 40 years we’ve helped keep Australian workplaces clean and safe. Find out how we can help you or contact us.

Pickwick raises funds and spirits for COVID-19 front-liners

Pickwick Group’s Michael Oakden (Key Account Manager – QLD) recently took on the challenge of raising funds to feed front-line staff at the Gold Coast University Hospital.

Michael’s aim was to not only support doctors and nurses at the hospital but other crucial front-line workers including cleaners, laundry workers, maintenance crews, security and administration staff.

In total, Michael has raised over $2,000 to purchase meals from two local cafe/restaurants, further supporting the community and local businesses during these challenging times. Meals are delivered to hospital staff twice a week, with a focus on nourishing night-shift crew who often rely on vending machines for a quick dinner.

Pickwick actively supports local charities and organisations in communities everywhere so when Ken Holder (Pickwick’s CEO) heard about Michael’s fundraising efforts he didn’t hesitate to offer support.

“Our people are genuinely dedicated to helping others during challenging and other times.”

“We saw their generosity during the bushfires not that long ago, so I’m not surprised to see it now during COVID-19.”

“Many of our clients provide essential services and we support them and their workforce through delivery of our services and commitment to ensuring their safety, health and wellbeing.

“Delivering healthy meals – and supporting the local economy at the same time – is simply another way of honouring our commitment.”

“On behalf of Pickwick Group I’m proud to donate $500 in support of the initiative.”
