Why “Personal Hygiene and Good Grooming” Matters:

Your employer requires it. Every employer in the hospitality industry has rules and policies about employee hygiene and grooming. Depending on your job, there may even be health code requirements, for example, about washing your hands if your handle food. And because you work in a service industry and may interact with customers, it is essential that you present a clean, positive, professional image. How you present yourself on the job not only impacts your success but also reflects on the whole organization and affects its good reputation. Your good health depends on proper hygiene habits, such as brushing your teeth and keeping your body clean and free of germs that could make you sick. Not washing your hands or coughing in someone’s face could spread illness such as colds and flu. Customers and coworkers will appreciate being serviced by and working with someone who is clean and smells good and who is well-groomed.

Key Points:

  • Proper personal hygiene and good grooming are essential requirements for your job.
  • Always follow your organization’s hygiene and grooming policy.
  • Come to work every day clean, fresh, appropriately dressed, and well-groomed.
  • And finally, if you have any questions about personal hygiene and grooming requirements, speak to your supervisor.
