Advantages of a Commercial Janitorial Partner with a Direct Hire Model

Contributed by Garrett Goralski | Regional Sales Executive

Commercial janitorial services carry out crucial functions through a number of processes that are designed to create a positive impact on operational efficiencies for their customers. A clean and well-maintained workplace makes a fantastic first impression on customers, potential clients, visitors, and employees which is also a strong indication of the high caliber and quality of the products and services offered by a business. As an outsourced partner, professional janitorial companies assist with upholding a uniform appearance without leaving any untouched areas or neglected spots and surfaces.

When evaluating a janitorial service provider as an outsourced service partner, most businesses pay close attention to the range of services offered, industry reputation, national presence, quality assurance, and more. While these are all key determinants of service quality, it is also equally important to understand the difference between direct hire and subcontracting models to know who is going to perform the cleaning services. When a janitorial partner relies greatly on third-party service delivery, the subcontracting arrangement makes it challenging to maintain transparency, service credibility, accountability, and quality assurance. On the other hand, self-performing janitorial service providers have better quality systems and procedures along with a host of benefits including:

  • Well established performance criteria for employees
  • Streamlined communications and account management
  • Improved transparency of operations and scope of work
  • Structured employee recruitment, screening, background and drug checks, and selection procedures
  • Extensive employee training
  • Uniformity in practices and management
  • Absenteeism management
  • Cost savings in the long run

With a self-performing and direct hire model, Diversified Maintenance leverages its national footprint, financial stability, customer-driven approach, and employee training and development program. As the Company schedules services with custom programs for its customers, its direct hire model enhances the efficiency of its work order management throughout the contract period.
