Happy National Custodial Workers Recognition Day! Held every Oct. 2, it’s a celebration of the people who keep our buildings cleaned, maintained, safe and ready for daily activity.
Every workplace needs custodians. Custodial workers are ubiquitous, yet they’re often the least seen or recognized employees of a company.
“More than 23 million custodians in the United States work behind the scenes, clean up our messes, and usually go unnoticed,” according to an ABC news story. National Custodial Workers Recognition Day is a way to highlight “their sometimes thankless job.”
In another ABC story on National Custodial Workers Recognition Day, one custodian says his team’s work is rarely noticed until something goes wrong.
“If something’s wrong, they hear about it. If something’s right, they usually don’t get that pleasure of hearing ‘Thank You,'” he says.
Read on for quick recognition ideas to show your gratitude and celebrate National Custodial Workers Recognition Day. Your custodial staff will appreciate the attention!

Workplace happiness depends on leaders who know how to empower employees. “The Arrival of the People-First Workplace” has begun, according to a recent PSFK editorial round-table.
“It’s high time for all companies — whether operating in a converted loft or from the top floor of a Midtown skyscraper — to adopt a people-first workplace. Or, as our report tells it, ‘corporations run the risk of fragmenting internally if they continue to separate employees from the high-value service they provide customers,'” PSFK’s Bogar Alonso writes.
A big part of putting people first is empowering employees to do their best work possible. And the organizational payoffs are big. TalentCulture calls employee empowerment “a powerful strategy” toward workplace happiness and growth: “Used properly it can energize a company’s culture, increase profitability and positively impact the customer experience.”
Yet, as TalentCulture and other workplace experts point out, too many organizations are missing the chance to empower employees adequately. Read on to find out why, and how empowering employees builds lasting workplace happiness.Read More

Everyone benefits from a healthy culture of workplace gratitude: employees, managers, company leadership and, of course, customers.
World Gratitude Day is this Wednesday, Sept. 21, so we’re taking time this week to reflect on how gratitude in the workplace supports people and amplifies gratitude elsewhere in our lives.
The origin of World Gratitude Day dates back to 1965. It was inspired by the all-American holiday of Thanksgiving!
At an international Thanksgiving dinner in Hawaii that year, Indian meditation teacher and World Gratitude Day founder Sri Shinmoy “proposed a globally unifying holiday to formally express gratitude and appreciation.” The United Nations formally adopted it in 1977.
“It’s a good day to reflect on what we have and why we have it. Doing that doesn’t undermine our ambition. We can still want more and expect more. But we’ll be healthier for acknowledging our good fortune,” she wrote.
Regularly expressed gratitude can lower blood pressure, improve sleep and even dramatically decrease depression. The benefits extend beyond personal wellbeing. Gratitude is also good for relationships and business.
Yet, as Kaplan discovered in researching her book, gratitude doesn’t get the attention it deserves.
“Three years ago, I oversaw a national poll for the John Templeton Foundation that found less than half of the people surveyed said they expressed gratitude on a regular basis,” Kaplan writes. “The American myth of self-reliance may be the biggest obstacle here. … However talented or driven we are, most of us got a boost along the way from a loving parent, an encouraging boss, or the simple luck of being born here.”
Let’s look at the ways workplace gratitude in particular touches everyone involved and lifts up organizational culture. The benefits of workplace gratitude are all-encompassing!Read More
