JOEL CRADDOCK, C.P.T., C.A.P.,I.C.E.

President, Doc's Facilities Solutions, Inc

I took the Full Course to see how our cleaning operation stacked up against ‘’best-in-class”. The Course provided that opportunity, with clarity. The amount of good content and the “bite-sized considerations” allowed me to take in the information easily and with clear understanding.
The most valuable to me were the HR Modules (5 & 6) – staffing. I especially liked the detailed listing of the required attributes, attitudes, skills, roles, etc. that we need to look for and hire to in order to best deliver results and value to our customers, and provide a low employee turnover rate. With such a high employee turnover rate, and with the difficulty of finding good people in our industry, and the cost of a high employee turnover rate, and the cost to recruit, conduct background checks and drug testing, to hire, onboard, educate, train, as well as uniform costs, etc., we cannot afford to make poor choices in hiring. Mikes well laid out plan, and the things we were not doing, we have now implemented and we expect BIG POSITIVE IMPROVEMENTS.
A very close second for me was all the great information on management and leadership (modules 7 & 8), the differences and how they were changing, and the need to be able to meet people where they want to be met. The information on leadership was great.
We as the cleaning industry need to develop better leaders/leadership which will in turn result in our industry getting the respect it should be getting.

DAVID GUGLIELMO

Associate Director of Facilities, Christopher Newport University, Former VP for Education, Virginia APPA

I took the Full Course to gain more general knowledge related to effective cleaning, cleaning operations, and the professional cleaning industry, and to see what Best in Class might look like. I also wanted to get a roadmap for my department to become Best in Class, and resolve the real issue facing all of us - hiring in a post Covid environment.
The course provided great value in all the areas I wanted, and did resolve my issues in taking it. In addition, I enjoyed the course layout, and the follow up Q&A/Masterminds’ sessions each week.

MERVIN BREWER

National Liason Chairman for the Utah School Custodial Managers Association

I took the Full Course as I am passionate about helping to ensure the best possible leadership training can be provided to those people in custodial leadership positions. The Course more than solved it for me, it was of great value.
This is a very high-quality product that can help the needs placed on leadership personnel in the custodial field. I liked that this Course emphasizes Employee Engagement and I liked that it places that responsibility firmly on leadership.
This Course is truly something that needs to be taught everywhere and needs to become the ‘mainstream norm’ for the custodial industry. With the material covered in the Full Course, you can change people’s lives for the good.

GEOFF BROWN

NYSSFA Mid-State Chapter, State Director & Former Vice President, Director of Facilities at Cazenovia CSD

As a Facilities Director I am always in search of professional development opportunities to better myself in the hopes that I can continue to improve the training and the opportunities for my staff to learn and develop. Mike’s Full Course and the weekly Coaching Calls with Mastermind Sessions provided great value, wonderful information, and the ability to explore our world with other professionals. I would recommend this course to anyone looking to develop themselves and their staff!
Image

JOSHUA KINNEY

Manager, Custodial Services, Good Shepherd Home (LTC)

I took the Full Course. As a manager in the cleaning industry field for the last ten years I find great value in the education and consulting Mike has provided to me.
In particular, the Modules/Lessons on Staffing (5 & 6) gave me sufficient information to solve my staffing problems, and to better attract, recruit and hire new front-line cleaners.
The presentation of the Modules/Lessons over the weeks gave you time to really think hard about the material and compare your operation to ‘’best-in-class” and then to develop a focused improvement plan to drive changes that will produce significant benefits.
Overall I would recommend to any cleaning industry leader and facility manager to contact Mike Sawchuk for their education and consulting needs.

MARCELO ESSABBA

Director of Housekeeping Operations - Miami Dolphins, Hard Rock Stadium & Formula 1 Crypto.com | Miami Grand Prix

I wanted to see how we can improve, and what are we missing that needs to be considered and developed as required for our specific operation. The Full Course did not disappoint.
The Course was full circle and covered many topics and ideas that would more than satisfy all – relatively new BSCs, experienced BSCs, as well as experienced cleaning operations managers from education (higher and K-12), LTC & hospitals, as well as venues.
I know this Course will help those that want to improve their operational excellence in order to drive better results in their levels of clean, healthy and safe they provide.

NATALIA SOKOLOWSKI

Team Leader, Patient Support Services at Trillium Health Partners (major hospital)

I was fortunate to take the Full Course offered by Mike/Sawchuk Consulting. What a wealth of information it was! It is a very detailed, information packed course that I highly recommend to everyone in the cleaning industry. The experience and wealth of information Mike shares is phenomenal.
The Full Course provided great detail and insights on the various topics as described in the Modules, and it provided many great ideas/suggestions. There were also experiences shared from others attending the Course during our Coaching Calls/Masterminds Sessions that provided value as well.
The Course made me review how our department functions and think of new ways we can do things to improve in order to drive greater consistency in providing high levels of clean & healthy to our patients, medical staff, and visitors.
If you are in charge of a cleaning department in the hospital, school, long term care sectors, you need this course!

MAL J. SMITH

Founder & CEO at Victory Lab Micro-Clean

As a relatively new BSC operation, I recognized the need to be as abreast as possible of the best-in-class industry procedures, processes, and products.
The Full Course, including the Coaching Calls/Masterminds Sessions were invaluable to me as I build my business, provide the greatest value to my customers, and to be as successful as possible.
The Coaching Calls/Masterminds Sessions allowed me to discuss and better learn topics meaningful to me. The comradery that developed I loved, and I feel blessed to experience.
Image

TRICIA HOLDERMAN

President & CEO at Elite Facility Systems

I liked the sheer volume and expanse of the content in the Full Course. There were many topics that as an owner of four different cleaning operations, in operation for over 42 years, that prompted me to revisit what and how we were doing things in order to drive improvements in our operations and results. I believe more businesses need a reminder to update their policies and procedures. This is the first course of its kind that I know of, and it provides demonstrable value.
Image

MICHAEL McCARTHY, CIWFM

FM Support & Solutions, Delivering Excellence in Environmental & Sustainable Projects

What intrigued me about taking the Full Course was to get a comprehensive understanding of how best in class do things, how others do things, and the processes they use. This course provided that and more! It provided a lot of verified perspectives, and the addition of new perspectives and paradigms that allow instigation of new systems and processes.
I especially enjoyed the Coaching Calls/Masterminds’ Sessions. They were important as they highlighted how others saw things and also how others work in different areas of the world and in different types of facilities.
In addition, the information from the Modules/Lessons was huge and gave massive support to existing processes as well as a toolbox to enhance and improve.
I recommend this Full Course to all that want to know for sure where their cleaning operation stands as compared to best-in-class.

MATTHEW ERWIN

Director of Facilities, North Syracuse Central School District

Since I am always looking for ways to improve my self, and my team, I made the opportunity to take Mike’s Full Course. The course provided a lot of useful information on our journey of continuous improvement.
I liked Mike’s approach as he is real and didn’t shy away from any issues or problems, we brought up for him to assist us with. I enjoyed his delivery and no-nonsense approach.
It was well worth my time, and that was the ‘’value barometer’’ for me.

RESTRICTED

Manager of Environmental Services, Multiple LTC Homes, Major City, USA

I needed more insight into the changing and challenging process of keeping our facilities at the highest levels of clean, healthy and safe for our residents, staff, and visitors, especially during the current pandemic where we had to continuously change our processes and procedures. The Full Course definitely provided great relevant information in these areas, and helped me solve some specific issues/problems that were lingering for a while. The Course was very thorough and easy to follow.
