Jurys Inn gets its Nottinghamshire STARS
submited Tue 14 Jun, 2011
Jurys Inn Nottingham takes home prestigious award for 'Outstanding Young Manager'
June 2011, Jurys Inn Nottingham's shortlisted employees, Nicola Ross and Alison Turner joined their General Manager Simon Anglin and over 240 people from the tourism, hospitality, leisure and culture industries for the Nottinghamshire Stars awards evening. Alison Turner scooped the 'Outstanding Young Manager' award with Nicola Ross just missing out on the 'Excellence in Customer Service' award.
The awards, designed to celebrate the unsung heroes of the hospitality, leisure and tourism industries throughout Nottinghamshire are hotly anticipated and much coveted among a workforce in excess of 31,000 which spans all ages, genders and ethnic backgrounds. Nottinghamshire Stars gives a wide range of employees from differing levels of skill and ability to become ambassadors for the industry and by nominating staff for one of the 11 categories, a chance to be champions of their brand.
Simon Anglin, General Manager for Jurys Inn Nottingham commented: “We're delighted that both Nicola and Alison were shortlisted for this year's awards in recognition of the hardwork, professionalism and the fantastic spirit they bring to the team. There’s a Jurys way of doing things - it’s in our group’s DNA. We recruit employees not just based on skills but their friendliness and ability to deliver outstanding service and a warm welcome every time.”
The Nottinghamshire STARS awards send out a positive message about the tourism industry, raising awareness of the commitment made by staff and students in the industry and rewarding them for excellence and dedication to quality. Nottinghamshire STARS promotes tourism, leisure, culture and hospitality as career choices offering reward for ability, loyalty and commitment.
