  • Area Inventory Lists:a list of all items within each area that will need housekeeping’s attention. It is regarded as the first step of the planning process, because it ensures that all cleaning activities are addressed.
  • Frequency Schedule:indicate how often items on area inventory lists are to be cleaned or maintained. These schedules often run on a daily, weekly and monthly schedule– as per your requirement and depending on the activity.

  • Organizing refers to the executive housekeeper’s responsibility to structure the department’s staff and to divide the work so that everyone gets a fair assignment and all the work can be finished on time
  • Supervisors should have the authority and information necessary to guide the efforts of employees under their direction.
  • A Task List identifies the tasks that must be performed by an individual occupying a specific position within the department. The tasks on the list should reflect the total job responsibilities of the employee.
  • A Job Description is a detailed list identifying all the key duties of a job as well as reporting relationships, additional responsibilities, working conditions and any necessary equipment and materials.
