This year at Kew Green we established our first Employee Board, with the goal of ensuring all our employees have a channel through which to have their voices heard, and to help our employees have a direct and positive impact on the running of the business, its future direction and the strategy of the company.
The Employee Board initiative aims to harness the innovation of Kew Green’s outstanding people and put employees at the heart of strategy and development for our business. The board is made up of seven members, representing each of our regions across the UK, as well as one member from our central Sales & Reservations Hub and one wild card member. The 2017 board members include employees working in Food & Beverage, Operations, Finance and Sales. Attending quarterly board meetings, their role is to gather feedback and ideas from employees across our business, in every hotel, and identify and support new initiatives for the company. The first board meeting took place on 7th July 2017.
Graham Norris, Managing Director for our Managed Hotels, spearheaded the project and will attend each Employee Board meeting and provide updates to the Kew Green senior leadership team. He says, ‘We’re excited to lead the way in the industry with Kew Green Hotels’ Employee Board and believe this is a great opportunity for employees to get involved in how the company is run. Our staff are our most important asset and we welcome the chance to work with the Employee Board to drive the business to the next level’.
