Nine properties. Five games. One champion.
The annual Housekeeping and EVS Olympics descended on Caesars Entertainment’s Las Vegas properties once again.
“Last year, Flamingo Las Vegas hosted the first-ever Olympics after the annual citywide games were canceled,” said Kaitlin Molina, senior director of housekeeping and in-room dining operations for Caesars Entertainment.
After its incredible success in 2018, every Caesars property in Las Vegas agreed to make the games a tradition at Caesars Entertainment.
This year, Caesars Palace hosted the games, and it was a party fit for Caesar himself. With dozens of team members color coordinating for their property packed a ballroom at Caesars Palace.
“The event this year included five housekeeping and EVS-related games where team members from each property compete against one another,” said Molina.
This year’s games:
- Vacuum competition
- Buffer pad toss
- Toilet paper toss
- Top secret executive challenge
“We had a spirit competition where each property choreographed a dance to their selection of music,” said Molina. “Top-performing properties were awarded points for each game, and overall winning properties were identified at the end.”
Winners received a trophy and, most importantly, “bragging rights,” explained Molina.
The defending champion was Flamingo Las Vegas, but this year, the property lost its title to an incredible performance from the team at The LINQ.
Molina said team members had a chance to win raffle prizes such as TVs, mattress sets, hotel stays and more, plus they will be able to enjoy refreshments at a cash bar with proceeds going to a citywide Breast Cancer Awareness fundraiser.
“All of our housekeeping and EVS team members were invited to participate,” said Molina. “It is a great way to showcase our mission of “Inspiring Grownups to Play.”
