Thank You for a Great International Housekeeping Week!

We hope you had a wonderful week celebrating your Kings and Queens of Clean. While International Housekeeping Week may be over, we encourage you to keep the recognition going and celebrate your Housekeeping superstars 365 days a year. Thank you for sharing your stories. Over 6,000 photos and stories were shared by hotels across Hilton Worldwide. In addition, 50 winners were selected to receive a US $100 gift card for a team celebration. Click here to see who won, and check back in August, 2016, as we get ready to do it again. In the meantime, click here for information and tools to recognize all departments.

Note that we’ll be leaving the website open through the end of October to share your stories and induct your team into the Wall of Fame.

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.
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.
