Hampton Inn North Bay, Ontario
At our hotel we are always looking at ideas to get our team involved in different events. The week leading up to Valentines Day we purchased the brown paper bags and decorations and let all of our team members decorate their own ‘Valentines Bags’ like the kids do in school. We hung them all up around our staff room and encouraged our staff to exchange Valentines cards or treats. On February 14th we had a pizza party and everyone went through their bags. It was great because it gave us an opportunity to check in with all of our staff and see how things were going but also to have each member of our team show their appreciation for each other. The managers all put words of encouragement on their valentines cards to show how much each employee really contributes to the hotel. It’s great to let loose and do simple things such as this once in a while. I feel that the motivation and communication through holding activities such as this really does reflect in their work.
