As the nerve centre of any hotel business, ensuring that rooms are clean and tidy, and that linens and beds are both comfortable and clean is pivotal to success. But, as anyone who has ever worked in the Housekeeping department knows, keeping hotels clean and germ free is a massive undertaking. It’s all about promoting strong standards, and working diligently to execute them. And, regardless, of whether your hotel lobby is beautiful and your rooms promote the latest trends, if your hotel isn’t clean and sanitary, and doesn’t promote a hygienic home-away-from-home experience, it’s a certainty guests won’t return to stay there.
So, what does it take to run a successful housekeeping department? From ensuring that staff have the latest tools and technology to do their jobs properly, to understanding the latest trends in cleaning methods, there’s much work to do to keep the department productive, efficient and happy.
To help executive housekeepers and staff keep up with changing technology, product information, and recruiting trends, Hotelier is proud to present the second annual Housekeeping Forum, to be held April 25th at One King West Hotel & Residence, Toronto.
The all-day conference will present a series of panels designed to provide insight into topics that include changing technology, human-resources issues, outsourcing, sustainability and more. Find out everything you need to know to ensure your housekeeping department functions efficiently, that staff are armed with the proper tools and happy and safe in their jobs. Learn about the best practices of the industry’s most successful housekeepers and find out how to problem solve some of the most pressing issues facing housekeepers today.
