Thank Your Cleaner Day
Be part of the Thank Your Cleaner Day and say “Thank You!” to the hard working people responsible for your safe and clean workplace
We all like to feel valued and appreciated
Cleaning is one of the most important industries in the world, yet most of the people undertaking this important work are invisible to you. Every day, skilled hard working cleaning staff are onsite to ensure your premises are ready to go for the next business day.
The Thank Your Cleaner Day is a special day once a year dedicated to all cleaners. In 2015 it was conducted for the first time in New Zealand by the local trade organization for Building Service Contractors (BSCNZ) and Kärcher to take the opportunity to thank the people who keep workplaces clean, safe and hygienic.
Together with local partners, Kärcher now wants to establish the Thank Your Cleaner Day on a global level to recognize the hard working cleaners around the world, who often work outside office hours and therefore out of sight. On this day, 21st October 2020, clients and office workers who use a contract cleaning company can let their onsite cleaning staff know they recognize and value their work – by leaving them a note, giving them a little gift or just saying “Thank you!”
Many of the individuals who keep our workplaces clean and safe do so in the evenings and on weekends, and thus do not cross paths with those who benefit. Thank Your Cleaner Day was established to recognize the dedicated professionals we depend on and the valuable service they provide.
Office managers and employees alike are encouraged to share the following materials, available on www.thankyourcleanerday.com, in their workplace and on social media with #thankyourcleanerday to help raise awareness of the value workplace cleaners provide and encourage others to express their gratitude.
What is the Thank Your Cleaner day?
The Thank Your Cleaner Day is a special day once a year dedicated to all cleaners. Together with local partners from the participating countries, Kärcher wants to take the opportunity to thank the people who keep workplaces and public buildings clean, safe and hygienic. On this day office workers can let their cleaning staff know they recognize and value their work.
Thus, the Thank Your Cleaner Day is a chance to say “Thank You!” for everyone working in a facility that is cleaned by professional cleaners. This could be office buildings, factories or public buildings like schools. People can thank their cleaner by leaving them a note, giving them a little gift or just saying “Thank you!”
