Quayclean Chief Executive praises workforce for April achievements

Quayclean Chief Executive praises workforce for April achievements
May 2, 2022

Quayclean Chief Executive Mark Piwkowski has described his workforce as “teams of superstars” after completing the busiest period of event works across the country since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic in late 2019, and the most intensive phase since the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games.

Over recent weeks, Quayclean has conducted cleaning, hygiene, and waste management services to dozens of major public facilities across Australia which were attended by more than four million people.

Over 250 Quayclean staff supported the 12-day Sydney Royal Easter Show which drew more than 900,000 attendees, over 300,000 fans packed into Quayclean-managed AFL and NRL venues since 7th April, and over 72,000 spectators were trackside during the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival at Royal Randwick and Rosehill Gardens racetracks.

With COVID-19 restrictions lifted, the Easter holiday and Anzac Day long weekend periods also saw crowds flock to major tourism and entertainment sites such as the Sydney Opera House, Adelaide Festival Centre and Perth Zoo, with aquatic and recreation centres across the nation also packed with crowds taking advantage of good weather and reopening facilities.

Piwkowski advised “an additional 1.2 million people passed through Southern Cross Station, Victoria’s primary metropolitan, regional and airport gateway.

“It’s been an extraordinary effort by our teams and leaders. They are truly magnificent, coping and managing every day under high pressure during peak times to make our customers look great.

“It is because of their dedication, work ethic and commitment that they were able to provide a superior service to our customers. Without doubt, they are teams of superstars.”

Going on to thank customers for their ongoing support, Pikowski added “the pandemic continues to throw everyone late curveballs when workers are forced into isolation at late notice which disrupts plans and operations. Our workforce has learned to be nimble, flexible and maintain a good sense of humour when faced with these labour disruptions.

“Our customers understand and recognise the challenges the pandemic continues to present, and they have worked in partnership with us to identify and implement solutions.”
