Jan 17 - 18 2023


12:00 pm - 3:00 pm




This course discusses workloading as the foundation of a successful cleaning plan. A workloading strategy provides an opportunity to rebuild the current cleaning culture to one of efficiency, innovation, balanced workload, and high-performance thinking. The goal of workloading is to provide a mathematical and factual basis for stated custodial staffing levels in relation to customer and management expectations of clean. Additionally, strategizing and planning determine which cleaning elements of who, what, when, and how are needed to meet customer expectations. Therefore, this course benefits frontline cleaning workers involved with performing the cleaning functions, as well as those that are tasked with making, and defending, custodial staffing levels.
