As a Hotel Housekeeper, you might think that it is the Front Office and Catering Departments that are the ones who are really “doing the good.” But the truth is, these Departments wouldn’t have a job to do if it was not for the help of Hotel Housekeepers (read on or watch the video).
But sometimes during those bad days when shifts don’t seem to be going the way you would like them to be, just stand up tall and remember, you are responsible for making sure the Hotel bedrooms stays organized, on budget, and efficient – without you doing your work the Hotel would simply not operate.
But why should Hotel Housekeepers really stick it out doing their tough work – week after week?
A Sense of Pride While the demands and stresses of Housekeeping work are many, so are the rewards that can come from helping people enjoy their stays in the Hotel. Remember Bedrooms are the backbones of Hotels.
Plenty of Opportunities Millions of people work in Hotels and it is one of only a handful of industries in the World which is still growing every year. The long-term outlook for Hotel jobs is excellent – it is unlikely that a Hotel bedroom will be serviced by a Robot in our life-times.
Potential for Growth Hotels offer tremendous opportunities for professional development and exploration, whether you want to try out work in another department or work at a promotion. Whatever you’re interested in, you can find it in a hospitality setting.
Welcoming to Everybody Hotels are an especially good place for people to start their careers and Housekeeping Departments normally have a good community feel about them which welcomes people in to them and soon lets them feel part of the team.
Relative Flexibility and Stability Hotels are open 7 days a week, all year round, Hotels can offer a lot of flexibility in terms of when people work. Many hotels have long histories and secure futures compared with working in other industries. Stability appeals to risk-averse workers.
No matter where you work or what type of Hotel Housekeeping work you do, it all contributes to making a difference to everyone else who needs the Hotels; all the other Hotel Departments, every Hotel Guest and all of the Suppliers, to name just a few.
I am saying today saying Thank you for everything that every Housekeeper and Housekeeping Department does out there in the World of Hospitality!
Never feel insecure – you are as good as the rest of them!
