UMF Launches Search for Best Guest Room Attendant

March 15, 2022

UMF Corp. is now accepting nominations for its annual Guest Room Attendant (GRA) Excellence Award.

The award, now in its third year, highlights the contributions of GRAs at hotel companies across the country. Hotel managers are encouraged to nominate staff members for the award. The winning attendant will receive an all-expenses paid trip for two, including airfare, to a location of their choice within the 48 contiguous states.

“Hospitality, already hyper-focused on cleanliness, has transformed its business model during the pandemic, deploying infection prevention practices that are similar to those of an acute care hospital,” said George Clarke, UMF CEO. “In the midst of this, GRAs have had to pivot quickly, learning new methods for industry-recommended cleaning and disinfection protocols. We established the National GRA Excellence Award to acknowledge the hospitality housekeeping departments that have worked tirelessly to ensure guest safety, satisfaction, and loyalty.”

The deadline for nominations is April 30. For more information and to submit a nomination, visit UMF’s website.
