Thank Your Cleaner Day 2019 This year, we’re celebrating Thank Your Cleaner Day on Wednesday, October 16th.This is a special day to recognise all the hard work and dedication provided by cleaning service staff all over the country. It provides a great opportunity to express your gratitude to the underappreciated individuals who continuously work to keep your office buildings, schools, restaurants, and other commercial spaces neat and tidy all the time.Be sure to take part in this initiative to demonstrate your appreciation to the people who work around the clock to make your spaces hygienic, healthy, and easy on the eyes. You might not notice them if they work during the after hours or on weekend shifts, so doing something out of the ordinary for your cleaning team would truly make them feel extra special.Crewcare is right behind this celebration because we’ve witnessed first-hand how our crew puts in the effort to serve all of our clients every day. As our CEO David Serville said last year, “You often don’t notice good cleaning, but it’s important to notice the cleaners every now and again. Thank Your Cleaner Day helps start this conversation.”What can I do to show my support for Thank Your Cleaner Day 2019?There are a lot of ways to get involved on this special occasion. While not everyone would be able to afford to spend money to thank their cleaners, there are several simple ways to participate.You can build your approach based on our previous recommendations such as leaving small gifts such as chocolates or flowers for your crew or even shout them all a freshly made flat white. You can also find examples from people who have participated in the initiative overseas. The possibilities are endless!Ideas for Various Budget PointsModest BudgetSmile and say ‘thanks’ when you bump into your cleaner to make them feel appreciatedLeave a simple card for your cleaning crewDisplay a big thank you sign on a digital screen prominently seen in your commercial spacePrint out a banner to thank themWrite a nice review for your cleaner online and share your thoughts about themModerate BudgetModerate BudgetBuy them flowers, chocolates, or coffeeTreat them to a fast-food breakfastGift your cleaner with a movie or shopping voucherPurchase an official gift box from the founders of the initiative for your cleanerGift them with a home cleaning or lawn mowing service voucherUnlimited BudgetSend them to a trip to the spa or host a party for your cleanersHold an awards ceremony to formally recognise your cleaning crewSurprise them with a vacation package — it doesn’t have to be extravagantFree printablesIf you want to keep it thoughtful yet simple, our team has crafted an awesome set of free downloadable resources that includes a poster and a thank you card you can easily print in your office or any other commercial establishment.
