Celebrating Laundry Week in 15 Minutes or Less!

Laundry week in Hilton Prague!!!

We had our first Laundry Week, and we would like to share with you our fun experiences! We had prepared a special programme for the other departments.

Monday – We had a spectacular opening by showing a short video from laundry daily operation.

Tuesday – The first competition took part (shirts and trousers ironing)

Wednesday – The participants had to find the washed napkins in a pile full of clean linen, and than to iron them on the flat ironing machine. The team who has most pieces ironed wins the game. Time 10 min.

Thursday – The participants had to prepare a guest delivery basket, following laundry price list, which was made by us. Some of the shirts were with missing buttons or some socks were with holes. The teams had to find out and to repair all damages, and then nicely and neatly to fold the items. Time 15 min.

Friday – Closing of laundry week with big awarding ceremony!

During the whole week we had great fun, and also it was very interesting for the people from the other departments to be a part of our laundry life. We are all looking forward to the next laundry week 2011 (maybe we’ll see some of you there :))!!!

……I was competing against our GM during the competition where we had to find clean napkins in the laundry… I stole some towels from right under his hands and still have a job!!!! ; )

Thank you for the opportunity, was great fun and more than all it gave us a clear idea on how all the Laundry team works allowing the hotel to operate.

Hi Boyka and Laundry Team,
thank you for the opportunity to have an insight in the really impressive work you do!
All the Front Office Team Members who had the chance to participate had great time and fun including myself. Even though I thought I am better in shirt irioning, but on the other side, thanks to your team, I can see my development needs now! :))
