A CLEAN PERSPECTIVE ON ‘BACK TO WORK!’
With more people demanding safe work environments that are regularly cleaned and disinfected, Monwabisi Kalawe, CEO of Cleaning for the Tsebo Solutions Group, reflects on how COVID-19 has elevated the importance of his industry in the minds of the public.
If 2020 was a year of resilience, where organisations from across all sectors and industries fought to survive a world turned upside down by the COVID-19 pandemic, 2021 is a year of transcendence where we take the lessons learned over the past 12 months and apply them to new and better ways of working.
Although lockdown and restriction of movement resulted in what felt like an extremely stagnant year, the reality is that perceptions and ways of working changed more radically in one year than in the past five combined. From a professional perspective the most obvious of these was the accelerated relevance of the industry as a strategic imperative in the minds of C-suite executives and government leaders.
