SMEs are the heartbeat of the UK economy!
Why does being an SME make Clarity Cleans a great business? Small businesses are paramount to the UK economy. Did you know that large organisations only make up 0.1 percent of businesses in the UK?!
SMEs are the backbone of the financial system in this country. They generate tax, create employment, and deliver professional services.
SMEs (small and medium enterprises) ‘account for three fifths of the employment and around half of turnover in the UK private sector.
The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development Council states that SMEs are key to environmental and sustainable growth, as well as social well-being. Meaning we are important to both economic and personal sustainability. We are proud of being one of many businesses that contribute to the UK. However, we are special and are pleased with what makes us unique!
Clarity Cleans being an SME, means we can focus on what is important to us as a business. A small team means a clear shared vision.
We care about giving our employees fair wages, based on the Living Wage Organisations recommendations. None of our employees are on minimum wage.
Moreover, we care about our environmental footprint. We are ISO 1401 accredited, we use hybrid cars for our senior staff and use reusable or recyclable products in our cleaning.
Lastly, we are a family business. The morals our family carry in our personal lives are the morals we emphasise in the business. We accentuate fairness, sustainability, we are dedicated to great training and brilliant management. We care about our local community and want our staff to feel included, listened to and cared about.
So, next time you hire an SME, remember that SMEs are important to local eco-systems and this country!
When SMEs thrive, individuals thrive.
