RISQS “Rail Industry Supplier Qualification Scheme” is a supplier qualification for the rail industry that pre-qualifies suppliers to be formally recognised as capable providers of products and services.
This enables Tarem to upskill staff members, which will enhance their skills, allowing them to grow and develop their career path. Also offering greater opportunities to supply labour into the rail industry and meet clients’ needs more efficiently.
Torquil Allen, Business Development Director said: “This is a fantastic achievement as it opens up a new market for us to compete in and have a greater social impact”.
About Tarem Services Ltd
Serving London for over 20 years, Tarem Services Ltd is a social enterprise company with a difference. Where experience has shown us that cleaning is one of the lowest paid jobs in the UK and one of the most important. Most cleaners have to juggle 3 to 4 jobs per night, on contracts paying only the ‘living wage’. For this reason, in 2006 we made it our goal to focus on tackling in-work poverty by ensuring that the cleaners working for us are recognised for the important and essential work that they do.
We achieve this by enabling them to share in the success of the business along with becoming an employee shareholder. Not only do our employees receive annual dividends from the profits made by the company, but they also receive a monthly profit share produced by the individual contract they are working on. This unprecedented move has transformed the lives of our staff that has resulted in exceptionally low staff turnover. And the workforce putting in the maximum effort that enables each contract to be finished to a very high standard.
We also get involved in a variety of other social and environmental causes such as assisting our clients in reducing their waste and offsetting our own carbon emissions produced whilst servicing contracts.
