The International Executive Housekeepers Association (IEHA) has introduced a tool on its website that can assist facility executives in finding qualified commercial cleaning professionals. The “Find a Certified Member” feature on the IEHA website allows employers to identify individuals in their area who hold the Certified Executive Housekeeper (CEH), Registered Executive Housekeeper (REH), or Master Registered Executive Housekeeper (MREH) status earned by completing IEHA’s Professional Education Credentialing Program (PECP).
Based outside of Columbus, OH, in Westerville, IEHA is a non-profit, professional organization for those who direct cleaning, maintenance, housekeeping, groundskeeping, safety, and facility management programs in commercial, industrial, or institutional facilities.
“The demand for quality, experienced and knowledgeable cleaning professionals has never been higher,” said Michael Patterson, president, IEHA. “IEHA’s PECP Program is the most recognized end-user certification in the industry and individuals who complete our curriculum represent the best of the best. This feature helps connect those individuals with employers who want to take the cleanliness of their facility to the next level.”
Located under the “about” section of the website, employers can click on “Certified Members” and find an up-to-date list of individuals who currently hold IEHA’s CEH, REH or MREH designation along with their expiration date. The tool also has a search function so employers can look for members by name to validate their designation.
For individuals who have obtained IEHA’s Certification, the “Find a Certified Member” feature will help open new job opportunities and increase their visibility amongst potential employers. It will also help reduce administrative duties associated with validating designations.
“While this is our first version of this feature, you can expect to see future improvements as we continue to grow and enhance our program,” added Patterson. “This is only the beginning of some of the new and exciting benefits we plan to introduce to increase the value of membership with IEHA.”
