The Sligo Park Hotel has thanked more than 20 of its staff members for their long-serving commitment to their roles, as part of its annual ‘Service Awards’.
The hotel had postponed its awards for the past two years –largely due to the Covid-19 pandemic– but management believe now is the right time to recognise the hard work and dedication of its team.
Revealing that combined, the hotel’s staff have served a total of 320 years, Sligo Park Hotel wants to recognise all the hard work and commitment that has gone into keeping the business alive and thriving.
Commenting, General Manager Gerard Moore said: “We have 20 staff members who, over the last two years, have achieved a total of 320 years’ service which is a remarkable achievement by any standards.
“Our service awards are a way for us to recognise and thank a number of people for being such valuable members of our team.
“Each member of the team has played a significant part in our success and therefore we believe it’s important to recognise their service anniversaries and significant milestones. Thank you to all and we look forward to the next 320 years.”
Mr Moore said the hotel likes to think its guests were in the right hands whenever they choose the hotel for a stay or a significant event such as a wedding, anniversary or birthday.
“The reason they feel that way is down to our superb team, whether these team members are working front of house or in a more behind the scenes role such as administration, housekeeping, dining, bar or leisure centre.
“All these functions combine to ensure guests at the Sligo Park enjoy a seamless experience with the best possible customer service and high standards.”
