    Yes,its true we should recognize all members of manpower in the organization we are into.

  2. Always get to know your housekeeper, they’re part of the team too.

    Everyone in a hospital is important. If one doesn’t do their job it effects everyone. If you keep this in mind it is much easier to make a point of knowing everyone and respecting all.

  4. I stink with names, but the cleaning lady at the building where I worked for last 2 years was Tina. She spoke very little English, but I spoke to her every time I saw her. I used Spanish as best I could… always thanking her for a great job. Her mother died in Mexico and we really missed her. When she returned we gave her a sympathy card and told her that we saw a big difference between her work and others… She’s the best.

    This is why I thank the cleaning ladies for taking out the garbage

  6. I remember teaching this in Sunday School. I hope it stayed with them !!!

  7. Often times, I joke with these junior workers and just pass a smile sometimes, but I hardly ask them for their names let alone addressing them by those names. This is an eye opener and a change of attitude is imminent. Tks

  8. Yeas . Me to when I m in college my teacher told us the same thing we mast know every thing

    I’m not good with remembering names but according attention to people around u with a smile/saying hello it’s touching, shows u r a good person, caring, having a big heart :)

  10. I volunteer in the ER at my local hospital, I know all my nurses, techs, doctors, housekeeping, and lab personnel by first or last if it’s a doctor. It was something I learned a long time ago. Also I try to maintain an involvement about them outside of work, by asking how the family is. Making it habit now makes it habit for future jobs.

  11. So true! Every job in a hospital is so important!

  12. Most often, those are the people who makes our life easier.

  13. This hit home for me..I’m a lunch lady..a thankless job but very necessary none the less..we feed all ur children daily and take it very seriously…don’t forget the lil people..they make ur life easier! :)

    I say hi to a lot of people everyday in my job, I may even hold a conversation with many of them but that doesn’t mean I know their name and it doesn’t mean I don’t care just because I don’t know their name!

  17. Dhen Tan says:
