The team at Clean Force would like to extend a huge congratulations to our Bendigo team: Simon, Rory, Richard and Michael for completing five years of service with the company.
Simon, Rory, Richard, and Michael joined the Bendigo team in 2016 when Clean Force won a commercial contract with Telstra. The team was initially responsible for gardening and cleaning Telstra regional sites across Bendigo, Shepparton, and Kerang. Since then, the team in Bendigo has doubled in size, while continuing to provide exceptional service across construction sites, government, and private offices.
We asked the team about their highlights while working at Clean Force over the last five years, here’s what they had to say:
After losing my old job, I was very thankful to work with Clean Force. Because of Clean Force supporting me, I have found other work I can do. I was also able to save and purchase a property near Bendigo – I now have around 50 sheep on it. I would never have been able to buy this property without Clean Force and the knowledge of farming and responsibility Richard has taught me.
Without Clean Force, I would be sitting at home seven days per week. The social contacts are priceless, my confidence has improved, and I can now have regular conversations with others and not just my family.
I work on an independent site two days per week. I can have chats with others at work, and I have my own money to buy things, including getting a coffee down the street. It’s given me the independence I thought I could never have. Thanks, Clean Force.
Richard (Team Leader)
When another company made us redundant, my first concern was my team and not knowing what would happen. When we contacted Clean Force, they said they wanted to take my whole team – it was a sense of relief. I have seen the Bendigo team double in size in the last five years. Clean Force and its management team have supported people in our area to work and give us a chance to contribute to the community. The Bendigo team all live with disability or illness in one form or another, but each one of them has shown themselves to be an integral part of our team. My biggest highlight is knowing our team has thrived and has changed so many lives for the better – not just our Clean Force staff but their families as well.
