NATIONAL CUSTODIAL WORKER’S RECOGNITION DAY
On October 2nd, National Custodial Worker’s Recognition Day encourages appreciation to men and women who keep our schools and workplaces across the nation running smoothly.
Custodial workers operate behind the scenes. They are often under-appreciated for the hard work they do day after day. These are the personnel keeping schools, hospitals, office buildings, museums, churches, and other buildings clean and well maintained.
While delivering outstanding services and running a well-maintained operation building, they contribute to critical first impressions and the success of any business. They’re the people we call on to give our brick and mortar businesses a polished look. The bank, schools, and office buildings look organized and presentable because custodial workers efficiently keep everything in top condition.
Additionally, their skill saves businesses and organizations money. Well-maintained carpets and surfaces last longer. Seasonal updates and maintenance help buildings to run more efficiently, too. Custodial workers make sure buildings are ready for each season and running correctly. As a result, the buildings are safer and healthier for those entering them.
The work is physically demanding. Depending on the position, custodial workers may work varying shifts and possibly in several locations. They may be part of a team or work independently.
HOW TO OBSERVE #CustodialWorkersRecognitionDay
If you know a custodial worker, THANK THEM today! Use #CustodialWorkersRecognitionDay to post on social media.
And we can all do out part to help them do their jobs too. We can be clean ourselves by keeping work stations neat. After a break, pick up after ourselves in the lunch/break room. We can even do some light dusting around our desks, office or cubicle. There is no reason to leave a mess for anyone else when we can simply do our part to help.
