Smart new look for Broadspectrum’s NSW school cleaners

​​Broadspectrum’s NSW school cleaners have a smart new look thanks to the input of employees.

Following an 18-month consultation process with employees, several prototype shirts were developed and trialled in the field. Employees were then given the opportunity to vote for their favourite design via Broadspectrum’s Mobile Cleaners App.

Senior Contract Manager David Zensea said it was important that all employees had a say in their new-look uniform. “The feedback and engagement throughout the consultation process has been very pleasing. The new shirts provide a very distinct identity for Broadspectrum cleaning staff.”

There were two overwhelming preferences; the most popular design was chosen as the new cleaner’s uniform and the runner-up design as the supervisor’s uniform. The new short-sleeved shirt is made from a polyester-cotton mix to allow for comfort and breathability. The Indigenous design on the sleeves was taken from Broadspectrum’s Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) artwork, designed by Aboriginal artist Anthony Turnbull in conjunction with students from Chinchilla State High School

The new uniforms are being rolled out to more than 1,600 employees.

Broadspectrum’s NSW Whole-of-Government Facilities Management contract manages the cleaning in public schools, TAFE colleges and government buildings in the Hunter Central Coast and Western Sydney regions.
