Celebrating Our Maintenance & Engineering Heroes!

We’ve heard from several hotels who are using the 2014 Recognition Calendar to recognize their Maintenance & Engineering teams during Maintenance & Engineering Week, January 12-18. See some of our favorite ideas!

“We kicked off Maintenance and Engineering Week with tool shaped sugar cookies and a wall of positive guest comments about their efforts!” — Jessica Lyons of Hampton Inn Savannah Historic District, GA

Yum, tool box cookies!


“We will be recognizing each department according the recognition calendar. All managers and the BE Committee have a copy for the great ideas. January started off with every department recognizing the Engineer/Maintenance Team. We have incorporated many more recognitions ideas for our Blue Energy committee to focus on as well.” — Sherrie Thigpen, Hilton Greenville, NC

Check out the cake Sherrie’s hotel prepared for their team. Awesome work!

Tina M. Christian (Hampton Inn Dyersburg) says

Our Maintenance man has been off for 4 months, and during that time we have pulled together to keep the department going. We are excited that he is returning next week and we are planning a celebration for his birthday, which passed during his time off. We want to show him our thankfulness for the job he does, but also for the brightness he adds to our day.

During our recent snowstorm, our Chief Engineer was here helping each department and filling in wherever he could. There was not one guest he did not speak to or assist in one way or another. He is a true leader in our eyes (Clarence Ponder)

Kimberly (Doubletree by Hilton Times Square South) says

Although our Engineering team is small, they are so very important to us! So they were taken out for lunch and given gift cards of their choosing to thank them for the extremely hard work they perform day to day. We are nothing without them!
