Clean Green Innovation Award
The TRSA Clean Green Innovation Award recognizes outstanding efforts in environmental improvement by a company and/or facility implementing an innovative approach to increasing sustainability, reducing energy consumption and positively impacting the environment. A company/location may nominate itself. All nominations are encouraged to quantify their results.
Company Community Service Award
TRSA recognizes that many companies in our industry make significant contributions to individuals and their community every day by volunteering their time, actions, talents and dedication outside of the workplace. The annual Community Service Award honors a company that has been generous with their time and talents and brings to light their sense of caring and responsibility for others in the community.
Above and Beyond Service Award
Customer service is critical to the success of your company. No matter how fast or efficient your plant and production staff may be, if the service is not, success will elude you. While there is plenty of good customer service in this industry, truly above and beyond service is rare. The Above and Beyond Service Award recognizes those who exceed the levels of good service and set a higher standard for others to follow.
Diversity Recognition Award
The TRSA Diversity Recognition Award tells the story of individual or company that has encouraged and facilitated increased diversity in the linen, uniform and facility services industry. These individuals and companies are tackling big issues and making our industry better every day.
Volunteer Leadership Award
The TRSA Volunteer Leadership Award honors individuals from Operator and Supplier Partner companies whose expertise has guided TRSA successes in advocacy, education, research, benchmarking or networking. These individuals recognize the competitive benefits and overall economic value to their companies of strengthening the entire linen, uniform and facility services industry, including their own competitors.
Best Plants of the Year Award
Linen, uniform and facility services laundries recognized in the TRSA Best Plants of the Year competition are acknowledged for their comprehensive efforts to improve capabilities to supply, launder and maintain textiles for their business customers. Applications for this honor describe achievements and surmounted obstacles and cite statistical results across a wide range of indicators from environmental stewardship to productivity improvement.
This competition enables Operator and Supplier Partner members to have their videos judged for creativity and messaging alongside those of industry peers. Fellow TRSA members rate the effectiveness of videos on how well they fulfill their intended purpose, whether purely informative, such as showcasing a company or its employees or products or services; or technical: describing capabilities, processes or product features such as training for customers.
