WMSBF board member Cindy Locklin was featured in the Grand Rapids Business Journal this week as one of the reigning finalists for its Top Women Owned Businesses awards competition. The Journal lauded Locklin’s Busy Bea’s Services as a janitorial-services company that is “changing the world” using environmental sustainability and corporate social responsibility.
“We are trying to make a difference in the world, trying to make it a better place to live, by doing what we can for our employees, including paying them for volunteer time, giving back to the community, while putting our customers and their satisfaction first,” Locklin said. “We also try to think outside the box. Spectrum Health considers Busy Bea’s Services to be one of the leading environmentally sustainable janitorial companies in West Michigan. “Without satisfied customers, you do not have a job or a business, and every one of our environmental buildings techs understands that.”
The Grand Rapids Area Chamber of Commerce also recognized Busy Bea’s as its Woman Owned Business of the Year in 2012.
