Hi there,

I hope that you are well and have had a good April – it seems unbelievable that May is already upon us!

Here at Spectrum, we’ve had a great April, with lots of exciting innovations on the horizon.  Kelsey Moss also joined us as our new Business Support Administrator.  Check her out here, we are loving working with her.

In other news, this month seems to have been all about:-

How Compliant Are You?

It seems that April’s been all about compliance! As we know, cleaning is a crucial investment in human health and the environment. Although at times legislation may seem like a pounding headache difficult to get rid of, it does work in creating safe and welcoming settings that essentially add greater value for your stakeholders. Failing to comply can lead to an array of issues, from legal complications to poor brand image. Only this month KFC’s reputation has been called into question when faeces bacteria were found on ice from a drink machine. Kellogg’s, another global company, has also been placed in the firing line after it was discovered cereals had been contaminated with urine. These are perhaps extreme examples, however they do foreground how even the ‘big boys’ can get it wrong, and that we all need support in this often complicated domain. Which leads me nicely to…

Keeping You In The Know

A recent survey found that the majority of small businesses in the UK were not aware of the Hazardous Waste (England and Wales) (Amendment) Regulations 2009. This got me thinking about how many of our customers were perhaps not aware of this, and were therefore not complying with waste management legislation. After blogging about it and posting on Twitter and Facebook, I thought it was worth mentioning here too in case you missed it. Click here to view our blog for all you need to know.

Our Community

We’ve been enjoying some great local events recently that have really given us the chance to enjoy our community and all that it has to offer. The BBC Good Food Show cooked up some delights in Harrogate, with its culinary treats bringing hordes of people to the area. Books by The Beach equally brought a great crowd to Scarborough, with the temperamental weather certainly not dampening the brilliant minds that visited the coastline. Such weather will hopefully stave off this coming Bank Holiday when the fantastic Tour de Yorkshire will once again return to the region. We can’t wait to show our support!
