The awards ceremony, which will be held at the Motherwell Concert Hall on the 2nd of September, has 10 categories, with four finalists nominated for each. Organised by North and South Lanarkshire Councils, these awards are one of the longest established business awards, promoting and celebrating the success and diversity of the Lanarkshire business community. There were a record number of entries to the awards this year.

Winners of each category will be announced at the prestigious black-tie event, which attracts over 400 guests and is hosted by actor, radio and TV presenter Grant Stott. These awards are a great opportunity for Lanarkshire businesses to come together again to recognise business excellence after they were temporarily paused due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Pest Solutions Proud Award Finalists

This recognition as finalists in these two categories of these prestigious Scottish business awards is more significant considering the worthy competition of the other finalists and the many great businesses we have in the Lanarkshire area. To be a finalist is an honour, and to be a finalist in two categories is encouraging recognition for the great work our team at Pest Solutions do every day to protect our customers’ homes & businesses from pests.

Pest Solutions Managing Director, Chris Cagienard, said:

“I am delighted and humbled that Pest Solutions has been nominated as Finalists in these two categories of the Lanarkshire Business Excellence Awards, as it is a great recognition and validation of our team’s hard work and dedication. Our team are our greatest strength as a business. Their commitment to professionalism and passion to delight in customer service excellence has driven our business forward, resulting in a growth of 72% last year. Growth & professionalism is simply a by-product of the focus and attitude embedded in our team, and these two award nominations highlight the good work our people do every day.”

The team at Pest Solutions send our congratulations and best wishes to all the 2022 Lanarkshire Business Excellence Awards finalists. We look forward to celebrating with you on the 2nd of September.

Excellence in Customer Service Award Finalist

Pest Solutions are proud to be recognised as a finalist in the 2022 “Excellence in Customer Service” Award.

At Pest Solutions, we focus on being a customer service company first and a pest control company second. Building the mindset in our team so that they delight in excellent customer service.

This is especially important as many of our clients experiencing a pest problem are potentially feeling significant distress, fear, or shame. People are often rightly concerned about the risk to public health or their business operations. Given the sensitive nature of a customer having a pest issue in their home or business, it is amazing to see how many of our clients make an effort to leave google review feedback for the great work of our service team.

With this customer-minded focus, by default, professionalism is the by-product.

We strive to be a customer service company first and a pest control company second. It is encouraging to be nominated finalists alongside other like-minded businesses and organisations.

The team at Pest Solutions would like to congratulate the other finalists on their nomination and wish them every success at the award ceremony. Well done, and we will be celebrating with all the finalists and championing great customer service.

The 2022 Lanarkshire Business Excellence Awards finalists for “Excellence in Customer Service” are:

  • Clyde Valley Housing Association
  • Pest Solutions
  • Policy Expert
  • Strachan & Kemp Commercial Services

Best of luck, and keep up the excellent customer service.

There was a record number of entries to the awards this year. The event aims to celebrate the success and achievements of Lanarkshire businesses and is hosted by North and South Lanarkshire Council.

Councillor Robert Brown, chairman of community and enterprise resources at South Lanarkshire Council, said:

“The huge response for entries is not only testimony to how highly regarded these awards are held within our business community, it is also a reflection on the vitality and resolution of the companies out there as they continue to pull away from the problems being faced by everyone during these problematic times. Both Lanarkshire councils have always been so impressed by the resolve and determination to succeed by our local businesses. It is the innovation and flexibility of local businesses which will lead the sustainable economic recovery we urgently need to see in Lanarkshire, having the skills to deliver in a fast changing environment. Our two councils will support local companies in every way we can.”

The team at Pest Solutions congratulate all the 2022 finalists and wish everyone the best of luck at the awards event. For our business to be considered finalists in two categories is a great honour, especially as we are amongst such strong competition and other worthy finalists.
