A new award recognizing outstanding performance in laundry facility operations has been added to the accolades TRSA presents in March at the Legislative Conference in Washington. The Best Plants of the Year Award joins others that enable member companies and/or their business locations to have their teams recognized for exceptional work among competitors in community and customer service, safety and sustainability, as well as individual honors for exemplary performance in these fields.

These awards are open to all TRSA operator and associate members. Multiple companies and individuals may be honored in the same award category and companies can win in more than one category. Submit entries for any of these awards now here.

Winners of the Best Plants of the Year will demonstrate how a local operation improves capabilities to supply, launder and maintain textiles for business customers, taking advantage of local resources to meet global challenges and deploy industrywide best practices. Winning applications describe how these laundries’ leaders seize challenges to become more competitive.

Other competitions now underway:

Above and Beyond Service. For exceptional attention to customer needs, either as part of the normal course of business but perhaps a one-time effort that was especially responsive, empathetic or pleasantly surprising to customer(s).

Clean Green Innovation. For one or more ways sustainability has been improved (resource reduction, discharge control, increased efficiency) or industry best practices have minimized environmental impacts.

Company Community Service. For short- or long-term commitments to volunteer time or professional talent or provide other support, bringing to light a sense of caring and responsibility for others in the community.

Diversity Recognition. For effort(s) to value the “unlikeness” of individuals and encourage or facilitate such variation in human qualities in the workforce, perhaps taking steps regarding diverse talent or intergroup interaction or otherwise fostering inclusivity.

SafeTRSA Safety Excellence. For establishing or maintaining workplace safety as a corporate value through projects or achievements that have produced or reflected safety gains; or ongoing activities that succeed due to top management support, employee involvement, training or good communication.

Volunteer Leadership. For individuals who have been involved in TRSA, enhancing its success and benefiting their companies through this participation. Winners’ activities may have included participating in political action, benchmarking, committees, presentations or certification; or writing, reviewing or researching for publications, videos or webpages.

Awards will be presented Wednesday, March 25, at TRSA’s 10th Annual Legislative Conference in Washington, DC. Complimentary and discount registration will be available to award-winning organizations. Questions? Contact Ken Koepper at 703.519.0029, ext. 109.
