Coconut Bay Dishes Out Impressive Prizes At Annual Staff Awards

The buzz and excitement was prevalent on Friday, December 4th, 2015 as senior executives, directors, CEO Mark Adams, owner Gary “Butch” Hendrickson, management and staff gathered for another gala staging of Coconut Bay Beach Resort & Spa Annual Staff Awards. The event has been staged every year since the inception of the property. It provides an occasion for the owner of the resort to recognize and award staff for their contribution to the hotel operations and success during the concluding year.

The 2015 edition of the staff awards marked the tenth year that this event has been staged. During this year’s awards, seventeen staff members were recognized under the category of excellence for Department Employee of the Year. This award prize comprised all-inclusive weekends for two at high-end resorts around Saint Lucia along with boat rides. The second group of awards fell within the category of Special Awards and featured the following: Spirit of Coconut Bay, Trip Advisor Award, Best Smile of the Year, Unsung Hero, Rookie of the Year, Front of the House, Back of the House, GM’s Award, and Department of the Year. Apart from the Department of the Year (Restaurant) which won a trophy and boat ride, individual winners in the respective areas listed above won a range of prize packages of two to four items comprising televisions, fridges, cash, tablets and stoves.

Some of the recipients of the ten Special Awards were: Spirit of Coconut Bay – Michi Joseph, Smile of the Year – Maryanne Mangal, Unsung Hero – Leonard David and Manager of the Year – Christina Gyan. In addition, special prizes of a watch each from Columbian Emeralds were presented to thirty long-serving staff members who have been with the hotel since its inception date of 27th, March, 2005. Winners in all prize categories, including long-serving staff members, were handed certificates of appreciation.

Quite apart from the focus on recognition and appreciation, the Annual Staff Awards provided an opportunity for strengthening work relationships, consolidating the Coconut Bay ‘family spirit’ and recommitment to the Coconut Bay ideal of excellence in service and product.
