ServiceMaster Clean Contract Services AAA has been awarded multiple prestigious awards for growth, customer satisfaction and more.

ServiceMaster Clean Contract Services and Merry Maids businesses from across the UK recently rallied in Coventry for our Spring Forward event.

The day was packed with informative sessions from Team Academy on how owners and staff can utilise their natural superpowers to create an impact in their businesses.

It was rounded off with a gala dinner and awards evening that saw franchise business owners from both brands awarded for their accomplishments over the last year.


The Awards Won

Growth Awards

One of the most highly decorated attendees of the night was ServiceMaster Clean Contract Services AAA, recognised for growth of over £5M in 5 years and £1.5M the last year.


NPS Customer Award

The team was also awarded for their excellent NPS and customer satisfaction.

With an NPS of +77, they far exceed the industry average of 40, demonstrating how they go above and beyond to deliver exceptional customer service.

When collecting this award, business owner Siva Kugathas remarked on the significance of customer service:

“Customers are everything. Without customers, we don’t mean anything, so taking this award has shown that we are doing something we should be doing by [making them happy.”


Employee Engagement Initiatives and Staff Awards

Siva was also awarded for how he engages with his team and works with them to keep going above and beyond.

Through engagement like employee mentorship schemes and 360-degree feedback, Siva has even been shortlisted globally for his efforts to recruit, retain and develop the best team to aid his business growth – which made him the worthy winner of this award.

As evidence of these initiatives in action, two of the team also received prestigious staff awards, both Kamil Derenowski, who won the Employee’s Choice Employee of the Year Award and Gauri Lather, who won Salesperson of the Year for her constant ability to deliver great results for AAA since joining the business, and for her ambitious mindset, drive to win and dedication to growing the business.


Giving Back to the Community

The team also won an award for the work that they have done in their community, which has included helping to combat homelessness in the local community and taking part in support schemes like the Pay it Forward scheme.

Be it through local charity events, Siva is always looking to give back, whether through large financial donations, supporting team members with their own charitable endeavours or even international community initiatives where he can make a difference within communities closest to his heart.


Carbon Neutral Invest in the Future Award

Siva and his team were also awarded (by our headline sponsor, Capital Fleet Solutions) for their commitment and dedication to reducing their carbon footprint through a tree planting initiative at his ServiceMaster Clean AAA woodland.

Speaking of his initiatives while collecting this award, Siva said:

“We have invested in our own woodland to [ensure] the future is protected and that we’re doing something about [climate change]. It’s our social responsibility. Everybody needs to do their bit. I think that it’s our responsibility.”


Marion E. Wade Award

The team also received one of the most prestigious awards of the night: the Marion E Wade Award – named after the ServiceMaster founder and minor league baseball player who began ServiceMaster as a moth-proofing company in 1959.

This award recognises a business owner who embodies the ethos held dear to our brand of ‘going above and beyond’.

As the winner, Siva was recognised for his drive and motivation that have led to rapid growth over the years, alongside achieving new record highs for the franchise network, and his trailblazing approach to winning new business has been recognised on several accounts, both internally and externally.

Congratulations to Siva and his team for their hard work delivering excellence and going above and beyond for their business and community.

We wish them continued success in the years to come!

Guildford-based entrepreneur Siva Kugathas celebrates the unveiling of his new initiative to offset his carbon emissions, the ServiceMaster Clean AAA Woodland.

At ServiceMaster Clean Contract Services, we are committed to providing cleaning services that go above and beyond the call of duty.

Though we are an international brand, we work closely within our local communities to provide a positive impact on the people we serve.

With climate change being a huge talking point and concern for many, we know the social responsibility that organisations and businesses have to affect positive change.

Back in April of 2023, we discussed the responsibility of businesses to help work against the looming threat of the climate crisis as we shared the excellent environmental initiatives from ServiceMaster Clean Contract Services Mid-Anglia.

In that post, we shared an interesting statistic from Forbes. Although 90% of companies think sustainability is essential, only 60% have implemented a sustainability strategy.

Siva Kugathas from ServiceMaster Clean AAA is part of the 10% walking the walk.

Carbon emissions and businesses

According to the United Nations, fossil fuels and their carbon emissions are the main contributors to climate change.

With most of the carbon produced in the UK coming from our businesses, industries, and production habits, everything we, as businesses, do matters.

Especially fuel and product efficiency.

For example, according to the Harvard Business Review, by improving fuel efficiency by roughly 87% between 2005 and 2014, Walmart avoided 15,000 metric tons of CO2 emissions and saved nearly $11 million in one year.

Though this is one of the largest companies in the world, this example illustrates the scale that simple fuel efficiency can have on costs and the environment.

The ServiceMaster Clean AAA Woodland

Siva and the team at AAA strongly believe that, as a business, reducing their carbon footprint to help combat climate change is part of their social responsibility.

As such, they have undertaken several initiatives to reduce our environmental impact. Chiefly, the opening of the ServiceMaster Clean AAA Woodland.

But what is this, and why has Siva chosen to do it?

In the cleaning industry, travel by car/van is essential to ensure our cleaning equipment is transported safely to where it needs to be.

As driving is a massive contributor to carbon output, Siva’s targets for carbon offsetting are to offset the carbon his teams put out.

To do this, he has recently purchased a plot of land in Devonshire named ‘The ServiceMaster Clean AAA Woodland”.

Siva planned to plant trees for each new client his team provides services for to help put more oxygen into the atmosphere and offset carbon emissions.

However, having consulted with a local ecologist and discussed the condition of the biome, he now plans to incorporate complementary trees and plant life into the existing land and turn the area into a conservation site to preserve and nurture the woodland.

So, while he will still be planting new greenery to offset carbon emissions, he will also be working carefully to care for this patch of nature and ensure it becomes a haven for local plants and wildlife.

The Grand Opening

Last week, members from Siva’s team from across his 14 territories and members of ServiceMaster Brands UK’s head office team gathered at the woodland to officially open the land and mark the occasion with a team BBQ.

As he popped the champagne and cut the ribbon alongside ServiceMaster Brands UK Managing Director Alan Lewin, Siva detailed his plans for the land,

“The initial plan was that we were going to plant lots of Conifer trees and offset our Co2 mileage, but there is a slight change in the plan now. We will nurture and bring in the broad-leaf, add more trees and look after this land.”

He then thanked his team for all their hard work and support with his initiatives:

“Thank you all for making it here and supporting opening this land.”

“To the ServiceMaster HQ team, thank you very much for being here, and most importantly, thank you to our staff who work day in and day out to enable us to make this happen and do something good to give back to the community.”

Siva, Alan and Guy Strang, ServiceMaster Clean Contract Services Brand Leader, then did the honours of planting the first trees, laying down roots for what the ServiceMaster Clean AAA Woodland promises to become.
