International Housekeeping Week 2022 at CSG

Updated: Aug 2, 2023

Clean floors, spotless countertops, and a well-made bed are what hotel guests expect when they initially step into their rooms. A hotel with these qualities is perceived as a quality hotel that guests are far more likely to return to. These are the expectations of guests, but such tasks do not accomplish themselves. It is the thankless job of room attendants to ensure the demands of guests are met and exceeded.

Housekeepers are the backbone of the hotel industry, they are even referred to as the "heartbeat of the hotel industry." Their job has become increasingly harder as the hotel industry returns to normal occupancy levels. Housekeepers are expected to create a positive guest experience all while juggling new regulations and standards.

Those who have endured the highs and lows of the hotel industry deserve to be celebrated for their work. This is the intention of International Housekeeping Week.

How to Celebrate Housekeepers

Every year in September International Housekeeping Week is celebrated to recognize the unsung heroes of the hotel industry. International Housekeeping Week was founded by the Indoor Environmental Healthcare and Hospitality Association (IEHA). International Housekeeping Week began in the early 80s as a way to recognize to heroes in the hotel industry.

The event aimed to reward housekeepers for their dedication and boost individual and team morale. Because housekeepers work in the background of day-to-day operations their work is often unnoticed. The IEHA created International Housekeeping Week to ensure the essential work of housekeepers was properly celebrated.

International Housekeeping week takes place September 11-17th. The essential contributions of housekeepers and cleaners are celebrated during this week. All companies, big and small, are encouraged to participate in this week-long celebration.

Celebrations can include putting your appreciation on your social media channels or giving your housekeeping team a personalized card. Other celebrations can include luncheons and award ceremonies for your team members throughout the week. No matter, how you choose to celebrate, the intent is to acknowledge the thankless efforts of housekeepers.
