Monday, September 10th is the start of International Housekeeping Week! Held every year during the second full week of September, International Housekeeping Week (IHW) is a week dedicated to recognizing the efforts of hard-working custodial staff members. The true heroes of any building operation , custodial employees, have one of the toughest jobs in a building. But also one of the most important. Buildings that are not properly cleaned can lead to illness and productivity loss for the people who eat, visit, live, work and play there. International Executive Housekeeping Association is the official sponsor of International Housekeeping Week since its founding in 1981. Today IHW is celebrated globally in thousands of facilities from Dubai to Hong Kong, from Huston to Dublin.
Please take a moment to thank our hard-working and dedicated UNC housekeepers for a job well done!
