Are you ready? International Housekeeping Week is only a few short weeks away. It’s our special time in September to celebrate our back of house superstars.
They keep our hotels clean and inviting, so we should do all we can to keep them smiling. But don’t limit your celebration to just International Housekeeping week! Make time every day to let your Housekeepers know they’re valued. It might be 15-minute towel-folding contest to get everyone charged up, or an impromptu ice cream float party to boost energy. Add some shout-outs to your morning meeting to recognize your Housekeeping champions.
Let all your other Team Members get in on the fun. Challenge the Front Desk to a trivia bowl with Housekeepers or organize a quick relay race between Housekeepers and the Food and Beverage team. When Team Members have fun and compete in friendly tasks, motivation skyrockets. A few events a week is enough to keep everyone feeling valued and excited.
