Diversified Maintenance, a national company providing facilities maintenance announced that 58 Senior Managers have successfully undergone and completed training to become CIMS Certification Expert (CCE). CIMS (Cleaning Industry Management Standards) is an ISSA-run certification that awards effective, efficient cleaning teams. Certified teams have to meet a long list of criteria across a range of areas, from quality systems to health and safety.

This achievement marks an important step toward gaining key information about critical factors that the managers can use to elevate company’s service standards for its customers. With their CCE designation and re-certifications, the Diversified managers have completed comprehensive training programs on principles of effective cleaning management, elements of a comprehensive green cleaning program, steps required to comply with the CIMS-GB requirements, and effective ways to assist customers in obtaining LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification. 

Diversified Maintenance also achieved its recertification of CIMS-GB with Honors meeting 100 percent standards and demonstrating the Company’s successful completion of a comprehensive assessment by an independent, accredited CIMS-GB assessor. The recertification also highlights the company’s commitment to provide environmentally sustainable services to meet customer requirements and also assist in achieving sustainability goals and points for LEED certification. 

Larry McAlpin, EVP of Risk, Procurement, Safety & Strategic Alliances, Diversified Maintenance, says, “Developed and administered by ISSA, Diversified’s CIMS-GB recertification has established a system that has improved our operational performance, cleaning outcomes, and cost management. We take pride in this accomplishment, not only because of the prestigious nature of this industry-specific recognition, but also because it demonstrates our capability to deliver quality and customer-focused services that result in cleaner and healthier facilities maintained with environmentally conscious processes. We are also proud of our team members who became CIMS Certified Experts (CCEs) as it benchmarks and promotes our Company for our employee growth and development, in-house quality systems, service delivery standards, workforce management, health and safety best practices, management commitment, and environmental sustainability.”

An accredited CIMS-GB assessor analyzed the company’s commitment to deliver environmentally sustainable services, and certified Diversified Maintenance for its capability to provide green cleaning solutions that meet customer demands, expectations, as well as their goals to achieve points under the LEED-EBOM rating system.
