A message from Mike
We all have a story to tell. The commercial cleaning business is where we landed 41 years ago. Aside from our daily janitorial responsibilities and the small business grind of compliance, regulation, taxes, liability, etc… our primary focus is the quality of the partnerships we choose to forge with our people, both customers and employees.
People are an extremely important part of our business, hence our name, Populist. How do we enhance these partnerships? Through a variety of ways – training, listening, responding, understanding, exercising empathy, patience, and discipline. Also, knowing that respect is reciprocal, by instilling and nurturing such core principles and values as commitment, hard work, individual responsibility, and professionalism. We believe we have a moral obligation to do what we do with the intent of doing it right every time. This is what we mean by quality partnering.
Yep, it’s hard work. But, it’s worth it, and we wouldn’t have it any other way!
Mike Eller, Co-owner, Populist Cleaning Co
