Shayon Wilson’s enthusiasm created several amazing experiences for Hyatt Ziva and Zilara guests, and the result saw him copping the Superstar of the Year title for 2018 at the resort’s recent Eminence Awards.

“An associate who has displayed outstanding work ethics, unparalleled, dedicated service and continues to deliver ‘service from the heart’ was how Wilson was described by his bosses.

Words such as ‘brilliance’ were easy to accord Wilson, who works in the Culinary Jerk Centre at the Rose Hall property.

For surpassing his peers, he walked away with an engraved award; a 55” Samsung television; US$1,000, and a weekend for two at the Grand Palladium in Hanover.

Wilson shared the spotlight with Wentworth Taylor, Supervisor of the Year, whose excellent contribution to the 2018 Employee Engagement Scores single-handedly moved the employee dining room scores by double digits.

“His work ensured the property moved from 72 per cent to 82 per cent. He was rewarded with an engraved award, a 49” LG television, US$1,000 and a weekend for two at the Grand Bahia Principe in St Ann.

Manager of the Year Rawle Shortridge of the Finance – Systems Department joined the top two stars, having shown great leadership skills as chairman of the sports committee.

Shortridge was recognised for his ‘supportive role’ in the hotel’s Granville All-Age School ­community initiative.

“He also oversees several projects on property that include securing the company’s electronic assets” were among the accolades read in the citation in his honour.

The other employees recognised for their outstanding contribution in 2018 included Phillip Hazle, who received a Special Award, and Redehlia Gordon of the ­Housekeeping Department, who copped the General Manager’s Award.
