Meet the winner of the 2020 Employee of the Year Award Winner

2020 Employee of the Year Award

Gulay Cinar from Main Beach Tourist Park

Gulay is the definition of a people person, everything she does is for others.

Having started as a casual cleaner at Main Beach Tourist Park 3 years ago Gulay’s incredible work ethic and drive to delight her guests has formed a culture in the park of striving to ALWAYS give the guest an amazing experience.

This attitude has recently led to her leading the housekeeping team and bringing her flair and eye for detail to the entire park.

Her infectious manner and zest for life have seen her become something of a tourist attraction in her own right, new guests have heard all about her before they even arrive, and returning guests bring her gifts and mentioning how the days are longer when she is not there.

A guest review from late in 2019 stated “The mornings sparkle from the moment you are greeted by Gulay and then are dazzled by the results of her hard work keeping the park not only clean but tidy. Her days off are dull for the traveller!!”

With a history in customer service, Gulay has found her calling in Tourist Parks where her natural ability to delight and amaze can shine and the judges agree that the industry is lucky to have her!

 

Highly Commended

Ji Fenton of NRMA Treasure Island Holiday Resort

Ji’s first day on the job at NRMA Treasure Island Holiday Resort was April Fool’s Day 2016 and there has certainly been no quiet time since that.

The pied piper of Treasure Island had no children at his first activity, so off he went wandering all around the park collecting stray children and parents as well, bringing them all back to the Kids Club and invented a new activity that everyone actually wanted to participate in.

Within a week of Ji’s commencement, he was bringing forward so many new ideas to fill the activity program, that the park simply had to just let his imagination loose.

Ji has no “off switch”, his zany, self-confident persona, constant laugh and upbeat “love of life” is fundamental to his makeup and it shows in his work.

Ji is the consummate NRMA employee. He is never idle and never needs external motivation to excel in his role. His generous heart and dedication to the NRMA Treasure Island ethos sees him frequently assisting other employees in their roles where he can.

Nothing seems to be too hard for Ji in giving his time and energies to his colleagues, earning him a Highly Commended in this year’s Employee of the Year Award category.
