Cleaning is one of the most important industries in the world yet is often undervalued by those who benefit from the service. Every day tens of thousands of skilled, hardworking cleaning staff are onsite to ensure premises, working and living environments are kept clean, safe and hygienic ensuring they are ready to go for the next business day.
Originating in New Zealand in 2015, and now in its fourth year, Thank Your Cleaner Day is a global initiative for businesses all over the world to recognise the hard work of these often invisible cleaning heroes to let them know they are valued and appreciated. Companies that are cleaned and maintained by cleaning contractors are joining together to support Thank Your Cleaner Day, which will be held on 17 October 2018.
Kärcher is partnering with the Cleaning and Support Services Association (CSSA) plus other cleaning industry associations and cleaning contractors to spread the word and encourage universal recognition on this day.
Kärcher has been supporting the Thank Your Cleaner Day project right from the start, from the development of the idea into the campaign that it is today.
Kärcher makes the initiative public around the world and supports building service contractors to establish the Thank Your Cleaner Day for its customers. Various activities are taking place in companies in order to show appreciation and acknowledgement of their service. Over the years activities have included colourful events such as joint breakfasts, barbecues, and morning and afternoon teas for the cleaning teams.
The feedback from the cleaning industry and the clients celebrating this day with their cleaning contractor has been very positive. Seven countries took part in 2017, this year 11 countries are getting ready to showcase their cleaning industry.
