Also shortlisted for Outstanding Leader of the Year is Monika Skrynska, our amazing Guest Services manager at Regent Street Management Direct, where she oversees a portfolio of a dozen high profile buildings. This is a truly special award to be nominated for; the shortlisted manager must embody excellent people management skills and be supported by their manager. Equally they need to celebrate their team’s successes widely and be a manager their people trust and will go that extra mile for. They can demonstrate their effectiveness through tangible results such as staff surveys, retention or other business measures.
Monika is shortlisted alongside senior managers from Park Plaza Hotels, Red Carnation Hotels, The Dorchester Hotel, and Park Plaza Hotels.
Finally, we have been recognised in the Excellence in Diversity & Inclusion category for the way we engage all our teams including our brilliant LGBT+ initiatives, focus on accessibility to enable a diverse workforce and demonstrating the education we have provided to our clients in this area. To win this award the judges are looking for evidence that an organisation is committed to a diverse and inclusive workforce and has taken measures to put some great processes in place to encourage this.
Huge congratulations to everyone and good luck at the ceremony to be hosted at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel later in September.
