Recognising our outstanding people

Kew Green Hotels Employee Awards 2016

At Kew Green, we enjoyed a wonderful night celebrating the successes of our outstanding employees, teams and hotels at our annual employee awards ceremony, held at the Crowne Plaza Liverpool – John Lennon Airport on Thursday 25th May.

Each year we come together to recognise those people in our company who exemplify the values of great hospitality at Kew Green.

The Great Gatsby themed event brought together individuals from across the 55 hotel estate, from Glasgow to Brighton, including both our managed and owned properties.

Alex Pritchard, CEO said: “Our employee awards ceremony is an excellent opportunity to bring together our people and recognise the outstanding work that they deliver throughout the year, in each and every hotel.
We are extremely proud of our hotels and of those employees who were nominated and won awards in recognition of the dedication they put into their roles, whether that be in F&B, revenue, sales, housekeeping and across all areas of our business.”
