About Batwork

Our vision

Batwork was created to connect cleaning agents with private employers, within a reinforced legal framework. The cleaning agents are thoroughly vetted by our teams, and should they meet all criteria, they are allowed to be listed on the platform where private employers can choose from them and offer a salary proposal.

Our Group

Batwork is part of Batgroup: a group that provides a 360° cleaning solution to those who need it, while fighting the black market on as many fronts as possible.

Every Batgroup company offers secured and insured job opportunity to thousands of cleaning agents.

We founded Batgroup with a clear mission in mind: to bring more justice to the cleaning world, by making the fight against undeclared work our priority.

For too long, home cleaners have lacked recognition for their hard work and have suffered from the precarious working conditions of undeclared workers.

Learn more about the mission of Batgroup and its entities in offering secured and insured job opportunities to thousands of cleaning agents across Switzerland.

The companies within Batgroup:

  • Batmaid is a platform to book a cleaning service. In this organization, cleaning agents are employed by the company. Batmaid is a cleaning company offering various types of services: home cleanings, end of tenancy cleanings and office cleanings. Clients that do not wish to be an employer can avoid this status and book services through this cleaning company.

  • Batwork is a marketplace to find and recruit your cleaning employee. In parallel with Batmaid, cleaning agents can connect with private employers on Batwork. The employer can choose their employee as well as the salary they wish to offer. However, a minimum wage has been put in place with the aim of preserving adequate wages and avoiding any wrongdoing.

  • Batsoft is a platform that enables private employers to have their cleaning agents declared and insured on their behalf. They are able to manage their working relationship with their employee on their own on this platform. Batsoft enables the automatic creation, modification and termination of working contracts, the management of absences and working time, salary payments, and warnings in the case of inappropriate behaviour amongst other features. This platform offers a simple and effective management of working relations in the home cleaning sector.

Our story

After five years, the company has grown rapidly, from very few clients and 3 employees to today, more than 50,000 clients and almost 100 employees. Batmaid has always been a company known for its persistence in the fight against the black market. This fight started 6 years ago, and so far, has led us to help more than 5,000 cleaning professionals exit the black market and find declared and insured jobs.
