Hawthorne Hotel Announces Employee of the Year Awards for 2010

At our annual holiday party for all of our team members this week, we announced our Employee of the Year awards. We annually recognize our top staff members in two categories -- Full-time and Part-time, and here are our winners.  In the first photo below you can see how surprised Claire-Marie was, and how happy her fellow teammates were in her award:

Claire-Marie Gauthier was selected as our Full-time Employee of the Month.  Claire-Marie works in our banquet department as the liquor coordinator for the Peabody Essex Museum, as well as here in the Hawthorne Hotel as a banquet coordinator.  Claire-Marie is such a dedicated and helpful member of our team -- we can always count on her to do her job extraordinarily well -- she is always right there for us, and does all of her work with a smile.

Runners-up for the Full-time award were Jana Mason and Luke Healy.
Claire Kallelis, Assistant General Manager; Juli Lederhaus, General Manager; Claire-Marie Gauthier; Liz Dube, Banquet Manager

Part-time employees of the year winners and runners'-up -- KrisTina Wheeler, Brooke O'Keefe and Elizabeth Manzi.
KrisTina Wheeler was selected as the Part-time Employee of the Month.  KrisTina works in the administration area of the hotel, fulfilling many tasks -- she is my administrative assistant, but she also handles many human resource functions, including writing an awesome monthly employee newsletter, and helps out in many other departments of the hotel. 

The decision on who should receive these prestigious awards was not easy, as all of the nominees are stars in the eyes of their managers and co-workers.  However, these two team members are so deserving of this recognition, and we are all very happy for them.

Please join me in congratulating Claire-Marie Gauthier and KrisTina Wheeler!
