Students identify the grounds and buildings as one of the top reasons they choose Central. That makes our job one of the most important at the university. Our teamwork and dedication has truly made this campus a gem of the state and set high expectations for us all.</p><p>In order to continue this level of service, this summer FMD custodial employees will be working in teams to learn new buildings, new systems, and new skills. Approaching work in teams of three will help ensure we have the person-power and the know-how we need to be effective no matter what:<br>• no matter what building we’re in<br>• no matter how busy things get<br>• no matter if people need to take a sick day or even take a new job</p><p><strong>Time to learn new systems</strong><br>The slightly slower summer schedule gives us the opportunity to learn the secrets of each building on campus, from locating equipment storage to learning new security systems. Unbelievably, our buildings and their systems range in age from 1 to more than 100.&nbsp; If we have to fill in for someone, we might need to figure out how to get underneath the 1940s barracks that house International Studies, or know the digital code that unlocks a lab.</p><p><strong>Backing up and filling in</strong><br>Everyone has days when they’re sick and can’t come to work. From time to time, retirements and professional changes leave other positions unfilled. Regardless, there’s work to be done! Being familiar with buildings and systems other than our regular assignments means we have our co-worker’s back—and they have ours.</p><p><strong>Help handling the crowds</strong><br>CWU is a destination for students, conference, athletes, and many other groups. Ensuring top quality readiness—and a speedy recovery—will be easier if others can lend a hand when needed. Working and thinking as a team will help us help each other when the pressure is on.&nbsp; And understanding each others’ roles gives each of us a stake in upholding high standards of cleanliness, no matter what building we find ourselves in.</p><p><strong>Time for deep cleaning and project work</strong><br>Everyone has a to-do list of projects you just can’t fit into the regular work schedule. This summer our teams will attack some of the deep cleaning and project work we’ve not been able to get to during the school year.&nbsp;</p><p><strong>Money in the bank means student help this fall</strong><br>Students can provide tremendous support during the academic year when demand is greatest on residence halls and academic facilities. This summer our team plan will provide additional help where it is most needed, and we’ll save enough money over the summer to hire students to lend a hand this fall.</p></br></br></br></br></br></br></br></br>
