Diversified Maintenance Managers Achieve CIMS Certification Expert Designation

December 14, 2021 Diversified Maintenance Managers Achieve CIMS Certification Expert Designation

Fifty-eight senior managers at Diversified Maintenance have successfully undergone and completed training to become ISSA Cleaning Industry Management Standard (CIMS) Certification Experts (CCE).

In obtaining CCE designation, Diversified’s managers met an extensive list of criteria across a wide range of areas, from quality systems to health and safety. This comprehensive achievement marks an important step toward gaining key information about critical factors that the managers can use to elevate a company’s service standards for its customers.

In addition to its staff members being declared CCEs, Diversified also successfully completed recertification to the CIMS and CIMS-Green Building (CIMS-GB) criteria with Honors. Compliance with the standard shows that a cleaning organization has the systems in place to deliver consistent, professional services designed to meet customer needs and expectations and is prepared to deliver a comprehensive green cleaning program based on LEED EB: O&M green cleaning criteria. CIMS and CIMS-GB certification are required in many cleaning service bid specifications as customers look for an effective way to identify high-quality providers committed to customer satisfaction.

“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,” said Larry McAlpin, Diversified executive vice president of risk, procurement, safety, and strategic alliances. 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 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.”

Independent, accredited assessors verify CIMS- and CIMS-GB with honors-certified firms meet the industry standard for:

  • Quality systems
  • Service delivery
  • Human resources
  • Health, safety, and environmental stewardship
  • Management commitment
  • Green building.

Recently, CIMS-GB became a direct compliance option to meet the green cleaning policy prerequisite of Version 4 of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) revised Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design for Existing Buildings: Operations and Maintenance (LEED EB: O&M) rating system.
