Hirsch’s Centurion recently hosted their monthly Domestic Workers Course, which aims at up-skilling and training Domestic Workers in the basics of cleaning and appliance care and maintenance. It is also a way to say ‘thank you’ to the men and women behind the scenes, who keep our households running smoothly.
An integral part of this program is the monthly Domestic Worker of the Month competition, whereby Employers can nominate their Domestic by completing a motivation to win the award. The Prize is a R300,00 Gift Voucher compliments of Hirsch’s – but the winner also goes forward for the title of Hirsch’s Domestic Worker of the Year – with a prize of R5000,00.
The winner for August, Gloria Ntshangane, was overjoyed at receiving the award.
Isabelle Grutman – Gloria’s Employer said: “Gloria is an absolute angel and we are so grateful to have her. As well as cleaning the house, she packs our orders and sorts out our filing. She is my right hand – picking up all the pieces that I drop as a business woman, ensuring that my household and business can run successfully. She is so appreciative and grateful – she definitely deserves to win the competition.”
The course was attended by 21 Domestic Workers, keen to hone their skills and learn new tips and tricks for cleaning in the home. A visit to the Bedroom Boutique where the importance proper mattress care was explained, was followed by a quick cooking demonstration. A general demonstration on the various appliances, their care and maintenance was also given. An important part of the course was also a presentation on the uses of Vinegar and Baking Soda in cleaning the home.
