the director has to be an expert in the janitorial business from working in the business. also; must have the ability to organize the workers to do the assigned task at hand. understanding the need of the customer and the leadership ability that workers will respect and admire. people skills is priority because most of the time the employees that are in your department will have a host of life short coming including pride in themselves. an eye for detail is what will make you the winner that the customer is in need of because there are things that a trained eye can do to help the the service of your customer that is unknown to that customer. housekeeping is one of the most important areas of the public and private areas of this world that can have a major affect on the world we live in and is take for granted. a lack of compiadance in this industry can start a health promlem that can and is very hazardous to your health as the public. cleanliness is next to godlyness.

A very good Director of Environmental Services must be able to do the following three things to be successful.

1. Retain Staff: You can do this by doing monthly rounding on each employees
2. Reward and recognize: Personal notes to the housekeepers home.
3 Make sure that they have the tools to get their job done. You can obtain from the monthly rounding.

Have a great new years
