For this purpose, firstly a literature review has been made and a conceptual framework on performance evaluation and housekeeping has been tried. Then, development of expressions, structuring of the scale and data analysis were completed by applying the scale development steps. In this process, face-to-face interviews were conducted in order to determine the expressions. The data obtained from the research were analyzed with confirmatory and exploratory factor analyzes and structural equation model. As a result of the analyzes, it was concluded that a valid and reliable scale was developed to evaluate the performance of housekeeping staff. In addition, factors affecting individual performance were also investigated and statistically significant relationships were found between organizational commitment, perceived stress and freedom of decision and individual performance.
