The Terraces Apartments at Port Denarau in Nadi will celebrate International Housekeeping Week in a grand way, in recognition of their housekeeping department’s hard work.

The event is celebrated around the world starting yesterday to September 16 each year.

Owner, Joye Dixon said during the launch yesterday, it was the first time that they had taken up the initiative to celebrate the event.

She said for a week the housekeeping department would be hosted for lunch and tea parties.

Their housekeeping department is made up of 11 staff members. Ms Dixon said some had been employed there for over a decade.

“I want to thank my housekeeping department staff members for sticking by us, some have been here for 11 years and it is an honour to have hard working employees,” she added.

Ms Dixon said working conditions for her staff members was always her main priority.

“I am very particular with the relationship I have with my workers. Since it’s just a small resort, it is easier for me to create that friendship with them, I get to know them,” she said.

Ms Dixon also said the one week event would be an opportunity for team building.

“They are very excited to be part of this event. Competitions have been organised throughout this week,” she added.

Financial controller, Kritika Sami-Nand said the event ends on Friday where the housekeeping department would be hosted to a dinner.

She said they have organised bed-making and best dressing competitions.

Ms Nand also thanked their general manager, Rohit Kant, who had been supportive.

“The housekeeping department plays a pivotal role in the managing of our daily business.

“They are the ones that see tourists are in good hands when they come here, it is because of them that tourists chose to come here, so it is time we recognise their hard work,” she said.
