At the Park Inn by Radisson Polokwane in South Africa, we know that when we help talent grow, it benefits the hotel, enhances our reputation and allows us to grow too. Our Happy Makers continue to do us proud: they scooped two awards at the Polokwane City of Stars Awards, that took place on 16 November 2017 at the Peter Mokaba Stadium.
We had nominations in 6 categories for: Best Housekeeper, Best Maintenance, Best Chef, Best Waiter, Best Receptionist and Best Restaurant Manager.
Two of our stars walked away as winners in the Best Housekeeper and Best Maintenance category. We also had a runner up in the Best Restaurant Manager category.
The Best Housekeeper award was given to a perfectionist and a strong team player Emichen Motimele who always performs her tasks with a great smile.
The Best Maintenance award went to Siphiwe Motloung, who is always there encouraging the team. Born with a hearing impairment and growing up in a silent world, Siphiwe is always teaching everyone basic sign language so we can better communicate with him and has not let any difficulties stop him from achieving his goals.
Runner up in the Best Restaurant Manager Category was John Rapetsoa who is always "adding colour to life" for every guest and his colleagues. He always goes out of his way to ensure everyone receives our Happiness Guaranteed Service.
Park Inn Polokwane is delighted to have such bright stars part of our family.
