Janitorial Subcontracting Network Sees Growth
Janitorial Subcontracting Network, a free networking group on LinkedIn, designed to bring together national and large regional janitorial and facility maintenance companies seeking janitorial service providers as subcontractors and local janitorial companies seeking contracts from larger companies, was launched in March attracting both local and national companies. The group has attracted hundreds of companies.
Ed Selkow for 6 years worked as an executive for national facility management companies and performed all janitorial services through subcontractors. According to Selkow who started the group, “I saw a need for an online network where large companies could find and then connect with small local companies to provide janitorial services to their clients."
Local janitorial service owners who are looking to add subcontracts from larger companies need to have a LinkedIn account in order to join the group. A LinkedIn account is free and group membership in the Janitorial Subcontracting Network is free.
Companies looking for subcontractors are posting their needs on the network also and their number is growing. A library of documents for both large contract holders and small subcontractors is also growing from within the group.
