Improvements through employee & personnel development:

Training specialist: Sebastian Waack developed a tailor-made training program for a Hamburg-based commercial cleaning company that raised quality standards and at the same time strengthened employees’ safety awareness.

Motivation guru: In Düsseldorf, Sebastian integrated an innovative reward system for a cleaning company that increased employee satisfaction and drastically reduced absenteeism.

Example solutions for employee development in the commercial cleaning industry

Customized training concepts:


Simple training courses:

In cleaning, it is important to work well and safely. Sebastian did a special training course for a company in Hamburg. The employees learn with examples and small tests.

This gives them a better understanding of how to clean well and safely. This makes work better and safer.

In the commercial cleaning industry, quality and safety are two inseparable concepts.
Sebastian Waack not only developed a training program for the Hamburg-based cleaning company, but also integrated interactive training modules.

These modules offer employees regular practical examples and tests to deepen their knowledge and skills.

This customized training not only improves quality standards, but also raises awareness of safety regulations and procedures.

Innovative reward system:


New reward system:

Sebastian tried something new in Düsseldorf. He not only used normal bonus programs, but also incorporated game ideas to tell employees immediately when they had done something well.

Employees can receive rewards, see who is the best and are given small tasks.

And what happens? The employees are happy, are absent from work less often and business is going well.

Sebastian has chosen a unique approach in Düsseldorf. Instead of relying solely on traditional bonus programs, he integrated gamification elements to provide employees with continuous feedback and recognition.

Real-time rewards, leaderboards and employee challenges create an environment where performance and engagement go hand in hand.

The result?
Motivated employees, reduced absenteeism and a flourishing business environment.

Holistic talent development:


Talent development explained simply:

In Frankfurt, Sebastian saw that it’s not just about hiring new people.

He has created a system that looks at how good the current employees are and who could be good in the future.

He helps employees to improve with special programs, advice and regular discussions.

This helps to avoid a constant shortage of new specialists and current employees are happy to stay and improve.

In Frankfurt, Sebastian quickly realized that talent management means more than just recruiting new employees.

He introduced a system that both evaluates the current employee pool and identifies future potential.

Targeted development programs, mentoring and regular evaluations ensure that every talent within the company is optimally promoted.

This not only leads to a reduction in the shortage of skilled workers, but also to greater employee loyalty and development.

Clear communication for first-class cleaning results:


Simple communication for better cleaning:

When cleaning buildings, it is important to speak well. If something is unclear, something can go wrong.

Sebastian Waack knows this and uses simple tools to improve talking between people. He has systems that provide quick answers and help everyone know what to do. It also helps the teams to work better together.

He believes that a team that works well together works better. That’s why he organizes training courses and meetings to strengthen the teams. With Sebastian’s help, people talk to each other better and the work is done better.

Communication is essential in building cleaning. If there are misunderstandings or a lack of clear instructions, errors can creep in.

Sebastian Waack has recognized this and relies on modern communication tools that improve the exchange between employees and management.

It brings systems into play that enable immediate feedback and ensure that everyone knows exactly what to do. In addition to these tools, he focuses on team-building measures.

He is convinced that a well-coordinated team works more effectively. He therefore organizes training sessions and meetings to promote team spirit and ensure that everyone is on the same course. Sebastian’s approach not only improves communication, but also increases the quality of work.
