Practical Approaches: Janitorial

The Connex Practical Approaches: Janitorial is a collection of Connex’s most actionable and dependable case studies that support facilities management professionals as they develop and execute janitorial programs. The publication covers how to manage different aspects of a janitorial program such as: developing the scope of work, establishing a cleaning schedule, how to maintain different floor surfaces and in-house vs. out-of-house programs.


Janitorial Workload Tool. 2.0

The purpose of the tool is to help retailers generate an accurate scope of work by quantifying cleanliness and removing subjectivity. It can also serve as a tool to help retailers determine and maintain their brand standards (level of cleanliness desired) and to gauge staffing requirements and costs. This could enable open conversations with the organization's internal teams, such as finance, operations and store development plus supplier partners. This tool was developed by the PRSM Benchmarking Committee in collaboration with Simon Institute and Michigan State University.
