National Custodian Day 2023: They perform their duties while we slumber. Sometimes we pass them in the hallways without “seeing” them or their work as significant. This is why we adore National Custodian Day, which occurs annually on October 2. It recognizes the effort required to keep our public facilities in pristine condition, as well as the people who labor tirelessly, often for low pay, to ensure that our schools and workplaces are clean and sanitary.
In the war on pathogens, custodians are our first line of defense, but their work is frequently unappreciated. Therefore, on National Custodian Day, express your gratitude to the custodians who clean the offices and institutions you frequent. According to us, custodians are the hardest-working individuals in the entertainment industry!
Activities for National Canadian Day
Do something kind for the janitor.
To demonstrate your appreciation for the custodians in your life, bake a cake, purchase a gift card, or simply write a note of thanks. Everyone enjoys receiving recognition for a task well done, and the addition of a sweet treat is always appreciated.
Compliment your custodian’s supervisor.
It’s a basic task, but it’s crucial when you consider that most custodians live difficult lives and earn little money. If you appreciate the hard work of your custodians, contact their supervisor via phone call, email, or text message to express your gratitude. Or, more simply, compose a note and have multiple coworkers endorse it. Stick it on the wall where the custodian’s supervisor will see it, and you will have given your custodian not only a wonderful day but also the chance of a raise during the next review!
Organize a luncheon at the office
Send an email to your coworkers inviting them to assist you in celebrating National Custodian Day. (Be careful to hand-deliver elegant invitations to the janitors and their supervisor.) Request that everyone who registers bring a dish. Bonus points are awarded if you can surprise the custodians as they enter the potluck celebration.
