STAFF members of Warwick Fiji were recognised for their dedication and commitment to the company by senior executives of Warwick Fiji in Saturday.

The popular Coral Coast resort held its annual staff awards function at the property on Saturday evening.

Resort general manager Tim Bathke said they had staff members who had been with the resort for more than 20 years.

Mr Bathke said it showed their commitment to the guests and the resort.

The awards function also recognised those staff members who were part of the long service members.

As many as 48 staff members were acknowledged by the executive management for their service to the resort.

Warwick’s senior vice-president Tammie Tam said they looked forward to a better year in 2019.

Ms Tam said Warwick Fiji had come a long way since 1979. She said over the years a lot of young people had come on board and were part of the resort’s team.

“Some of the staff members here were young boys and girls and now they are an important part of the team,” she said.

Awards presented at the function included employee of the year, general manager of the year, among others.

Those who are retiring this year were also recognised for their long service and commitment to the company.

Meanwhile the executive team also performed a traditional yaqona ceremony for the staff members too.
