National Custodial Worker Day is celebrated on October 2nd of each year.  It was established to celebrate the hard work of men and women in the custodial profession.  Custodial workers are those who clean toilets, mop floors, take out the garbage and generally maintain your office space.  These men and women work hard every day and are often taken for granted.  Today is a great day to show a little appreciation.

The staff here at National Whatever Day were unable to locate the origin of National Custodial Worker Day.  However, we were able to locate a Custodial Worker’s Resource website.  Custodial Worker’s Resource provides resources for custodial workers as well as recognition.  One of their “Dates to remember” is National Custodial Worker Day on October 2nd.

Recognizing the Custodial Worker’s who work with you can be as simple as saying hello and how much you appreciate their work.  Other options are greeting cards, a poster placed for all to see, or if you are the boss maybe offer the day off.
