National Custodial Worker’s Recognition Day

National Custodial Worker’s Recognition Day

On October 2nd, National Custodial Worker’s Recognition Day encourages appreciation to men and women who keep our schools and workplaces across the nation running smoothly.

We especially want to recognize, and appreciate them for their hard work during this pandemic.  COVID-19 has thrust our custodial teams into a front-line battle with infection control.  They have graciously adapted and helped implement processes to address this global pandemic here at Georgia College.

Custodial workers have always been a key part of maintenance, cleanliness and keeping us safe, but during this outbreak, the importance of their roles has greatly increased. Officially deemed an essential worker, custodians have taken on the role of frontline soldiers in the battle to stop the spread of coronavirus.  They continue working tirelessly to help keep Georgia College buildings as clean and disease-free as possible.

Our custodians deserve to be recognized, respected and supported now more than ever. Custodial workers operate behind the scenes, and are often under-appreciated for the hard work they do day after day, and we want to honor those who selflessly commit to keeping us safe.  As a result of their hard work, the buildings are safer and healthier for those entering them.

So please, if you know or see a custodial worker, THANK THEM today!

And remember, we can all do our part to help them do their jobs too. We can be clean ourselves by keeping work stations neat. After a break, pick up after ourselves in the lunch/break room. We can even do some light dusting around our desks, office or cubicle. There is no reason to leave a mess for anyone else when we can simply do our part to help.
