International Housekeeping Week is a week (held every year during the second full week of September) dedicated to recognizing the efforts of hard-working housekeepers who work behind the scenes to maintain the quality and cleanliness of our GMU campus.
Amidst COVID pandemic, the work of the housekeepers increased many folds. Hygiene & cleanliness has never been more important. The pandemic has required housekeeping staff to change the way they work. They have increased the frequency of cleaning in many areas and embraced new tools such as electrostatic sprayers and personal protective equipment. We are so grateful for the dedication and determination of our staff who play an important role in reducing the spread of illness. GMU applauds the efforts of everyone who is living out what it means to put the interest of others first.
A small video was shared during the event. All the members of Housekeeping were felicitated with certificates by the Chancellor, Vice Chancellor – Academics and COO. This was followed by Cake cutting and a lunch for the Housekeeping Team.
GMU is thankful to our unsung Heroes of Housekeeping for looking after us all and for thier critical contributions to keeping us safe.
