"The team and I enjoy having the opportunity to read each of these submissions. It truly is difficult to narrow our choice to a single winner ever year. Kayla's submissions focuses on her personal experience taking the role of a custodian and how through personal experience she realized businesses would not run without custodial work. Congratulations, Kayla!"
– Sam Riegsecker, Manager of Makreting Operations, Janitorial Manager
In her essay, Kayla describes that a business’s cleanliness shapes the perception of patrons. “If the place does not look clean, my thoughts about the business immediately are negative, whether they may have good service, good food or good products, Kayla writes. “Custodial work is so important to maintaining and attracting customers.”
Kayla also cites her personal experience while working as a custodian for a local elementary school in the summer of 2020.
As Covid-19 continued to spread around the world, it was there that she gained respect for custodians, learning just how important the job was for ensuring that facilities remain clean and healthy. “I would not want to work in an environment that was not kept clean, visit an unsanitary business, or send my kids to school in such an environment,” she notes. “Although my impact may have been little, I felt pride in that I could justify making sure the elementary school was clean once I finished there.”
At Janitorial Manager, we couldn’t agree more with her perspective. A new standard of clean has arrived across the globe. JM is proud to be a solution to help businesses and institutions keep their facilities clean, healthy, and safe.
