Now in its fifth year, the Thank Your Cleaner Day campaign provides businesses with the platform to bring cleaning staff into the spotlight so that their hard work and dedication in keeping our premises clean can be recognised, reminding everyone of the positive impact they have. On 16 October 2019 more than 20 countries across the globe will join the Thank Your Cleaner Day campaign, from Australia to the Dominican Republic, to the USA and the United Kingdom. To celebrate this key date, Kärcher encourages the global cleaning industry to support and raise awareness for the important cleaning work many overlook.
Managing director of Kärcher UK, Simon Keeping, said: “By creating a special day to celebrate the work our cleaners do, we’re focussing attention on the value they bring to improving the quality of our work and leisure environments. These unsung heroes, often working unsociable hours, help improve our productivity at work and enhance our enjoyment during downtime. It’s a great opportunity for us to appreciate the great work our cleaning teams do to improve our surroundings. On this day we encourage everyone to take the time just to say hi to their cleaning staff and thank them for making a difference.”
British Cleaning Council chairman, Paul Thrupp, said: “Workers in the cleaning sector provide a vital service to the economy, ensuring that our workplaces, schools, hospitals, transport, and public spaces are clean, tidy and safe. So we at the BCC are delighted to support this fantastic campaign which encourages people to recognise the hard work of cleaners and the massive contribution they make.”
