Best Practices
Treat Your Team Like Stars With Movies and Popcorn! Hampton Inn & Suites Madison – West, WI, picks one day during the week and brings in ALL Housekeepers, so each person has only ten rooms to clean. After finishing early, they gather in a conference room for a movie, popcorn, pizza—and a whole lot of recognition. Variation: Bring slippers for the Housekeepers to wear.
DID YOU KNOW?
Studies show that one in three employees cite lack of recognition as a factor when
leaving their job. Recognition can positively impact retention and much more.
