To commemorate International Employee Appreciation Day, Villa Resorts has launched a new and innovative Employee Appreciation Programme.
“As work environments continue to evolve and become more diverse, multi-generational, and technology-driven, we believe that recognition and appreciation should evolve as well,” Villa Resorts said.
Effective 3 March 2023, its recognition initiatives will be integrated with mobile technology to make it easier to acknowledge team members. The programme includes gamification and a range of reward options, enabling team members to select the type of appreciation they value most, empowering everyone to celebrate achievements and share them through its social space.
“Our appreciation program strongly emphasises genuine, specific, and sincere recognitions tailored to each individual’s accomplishments,” said Mohamed Aalim, Group Director of Talent and Culture at Villa Resorts.
“Unlike traditional infrequent appreciation, our flexible and frequent recognition system will reinforce positive behaviors, motivate team members, and create a culture of continuous appreciation and recognition.”
As part of its transformation initiatives, the hospitality group has also launched the Villa Academy of Excellence to promote a growth mindset and an Employee Wellbeing Certification to prioritise its team members’ mental and physical health.
“At Villa Resorts, we are committed to cultivating a work environment that values and recognises our team members, fosters positivity, and encourages everyone to reach their full potential,” the hospitality group said.
“On behalf of Villa Resorts, we extend our sincere gratitude to all employees for your contribution to developing our industries. We wish everyone a Happy Intentional Employee Appreciation Day!”
Employee Appreciation Day is observed on the first Friday in March, for employers to give thanks or recognition to their employees.
