CHATA Stars of the Industry Q2 2017

Willemstad (September 28th , 2017) – The award ceremony of the Stars of the Industry 2nd quarter of 2017 was held at CHATA member Blue Bay Curaçao Golf & Beach Resort. During this event, the 2nd quarter employees and supervisors nominated by a variety of CHATA members were recognized and celebrated. All the nominees received a gift provided by Sprock Distilleries.

Each quarter CHATA focuses on a different personal quality a person has that brings out the best in them while working in the hospitality/tourism industry. The focus of this quarter is Trustworthiness. According to President & CEO, Mr. Miles Mercera, “Trustworthiness is very important in our daily lives and also the tourism industry. In order for our society to be able to function, we have to be able to rely on others and trust that they are going to do what they promised to do. This is the case in romantic relationships, families, friendships but also with our colleagues and employees. Visitors for example trust that Curaçao will deliver on its promise to provide them with a pleasant stay. On the other hand, managers and business owners also trust that their employees will execute their work to the best of their abilities and provide their customers with the ultimate experience. The reason that these Stars have been nominated today is because they are doing just that. They have proven to their colleagues and managers that they are worthy of their trust by always meeting and exceeding their expectations.”
