Celebrating Our Maintenance & Engineering Heroes With a Special Day of Recognition.

Hilton Cebu Resort & Spa, Philippines

To show our appreciation to our Maintenance & Engineering Team Members, we held a Maintenance & Engineering Appreciation Day. We celebrated it at our Team Member Restaurant with tables set-up for the team. The day prior, personalized invites were sent out to the team members stating a specific time. When the time came, the other team members in the restaurant welcomed the Maintenance & Engineering Team with a round of applause and words of thanks. We also made sure everyone knew the significance of the event by setting up a poster right at the entrance with and action prompting statement reading, “Have you thanked them lately?”

All the Heads of Department were there to welcome them, serve them and thank them throughout their meal. Midway through, we announced the significance of the event to everyone and announced that there were special people who deserved special recognition. Awards were given out and the team members were touched with one team leader teary while receiving his recognition.

I think the best part about it was when we started capping-off the event, literally, with our General Manager, Markus Kraus, approaching each of them and putting our tokens (caps) on their heads. The tokens were caps with a logo of Mighty Mouse and accompanying text that said “Here I Come To Save The Day.” These were also given out with personalized tags to make them feel extra special that day.
