Employee of the Month Luncheon | January 2022

We recently held our First Monthly Employee of the Month Luncheon of 2022! Each month our Leadership team has the opportunity to nominate a Team Member who they feel demonstrates exemplary work performance and outstanding achievement- in other words, a ‘Hospitality Hero’! The Team Member must show the highest level of Professionalism, Respect to Others, Integrity, Teamwork, & Accountability.  



During the Luncheon, each Leader takes turns introducing their Nominees and their story of success, growth, and professional excellence. Many smiles, laughs, and stories are exchanged between all of the different attending departments, team members, and leaders. Towards the end of the Luncheon the winner is revealed! While there is one winner each month, we strongly believe in celebrating each Employee’s progress and successes equally.
