International Housekeepers & Environmental Services Week | September 12-18, 2021

IHW 2021

Held every year during the second full week of September (12th-18th in 2021), International Housekeepers and Environmental Services Week is a week dedicated to recognizing the efforts of hard-working custodial staff members. During a global pandemic, we have seen these unsung heroes on the front lines to keep facilities clean and safe for those who work, visit, live and play there.


We encourage you to celebrate with us by recognizing your company’s cleaning and EVS staff with us. Here are a few simple things you can do:


  1. Dedicate a whole week of activity that culminates into a large award ceremony to acknowledge the accomplishments of staff.
  2. Post your appreciation on your personal and company social media channels.
  3. Sign up your team to compete in the preliminary round of the Housekeeping Olympics where winners attend the finals in Las Vegas. Register today by filling out and submitting this form.
