In addition to HHS’ CIMS-GB certification, HHS met compliance with the Standard CIMS certification which recognizes organizations for their ability to deliver consistent, quality services that meet their customer’s needs.
The Standard is divided into six areas of management best practices:
- Quality systems
- Service delivery
- Human resources
- Health, safety, and environmental stewardship
- Management commitment
- Green Building (GB)
The CIMS-GB certification is an optional designation that is awarded to companies who successfully demonstrate a commitment to the delivery of environmentally preferred services that meet partner needs and expectations. By implementing the CIMS-GB principles, HHS has established its capability of providing green cleaning services and assisting partners in achieving benchmarks and points under the LEED-Existing Buildings: Operations and Maintenance (LEED-EBOM) Green Building Rating System. HHS underwent a comprehensive assessment by an accredited CIMS-GB assessor to officially be certified as an ISSA CIMS-GB organization.
