Indesit Introduces Chore Club To Encourage Housework Sharing

Major appliance manufacturer, Indesit has introduced a Chore Club to encourage families to involve children in the household chores through light-hearted learning activities, as part of the brand’s wider #DoItTogether campaign. The #DoItTogether campaign continues to focus on the gender imbalance of sharing the domestic duties, as 85 per cent of women claimed to be solely responsible for delegating household chores*, and aims to encourage families to think about how to share the chores fairly.

The Indesit Chore Club kicked off on 1st August 2020 and is designed to turn everyday chores into enjoyable and interesting ways to educate children. Throughout August, Indesit will be sharing a range of fun activities on social media that encourage children to get involved in household chores. The activities include recipes that involve mathematical equations and learning Spanish while unloading the dishwasher. Indesit’s easy-to-use, family-friendly appliances play a starring role in making housework easier, as families try to balance busy lives with the ever increasing demands of the home.

In 2019, Indesit conducted a survey to learn more about family life, how chores are delegated and why parents chose to involve their children in the housework. A key objective of the #DoItTogether campaign is to encourage parents to educate their children on the importance of sharing chores and improving the gender balance for the next generation. The study revealed the main reason for involving children in housework was to make them feel more responsible, which was closely followed by teaching the children the importance of independence*.

Easy-to use appliances from Indesit include the Aria built-in range of ovens that boast the family-friendly Turn&Cook feature and its Innex range of washing machines that benefit from Push&Wash, a one-button system that commences a dedicated programme with the simple push of a button, making the chore of doing the laundry a simpler, faster and fuss-free operation.

Sara Bazeley, Brand Manager, Indesit, says: “Involving children in the housework is important for future generations and the Chore Club activities are a fun way of encouraging children to participate. We hope families have fun with the Chore Club and that the increased exposure of the important role appliances have in completing the household chores inspires consumers to invest in the latest appliance technology that can save them precious time and resources.”
