Praise for tourism workers
Minister of Tourism Richard Sealy has advised stakeholders that for Barbados’ tourism product to be sustained, front-line workers in the sector need to be recognised.
Giving the feature address at The Club Barbados Resort & Spa’s staff awards on Saturday night at the Almond Beach Resort in St Peter, Sealy said worker appreciation was critical because motivated workers always wanted to perform their best.
He contended that if workers were not motivated by something greater and more meaningful than just a pay cheque, then they would shift to another area where payment was more flourishing.
He stressed the fact that many workers had held strain in spite of not having an increase in salary for a few years spoke volumes to their dedication.
“That again is something that is never mentioned but that is something I am aware of. Everything that I have said about putting service over self has been done in circumstances where even though the cost of living has gone up slightly . . . you have still stuck with the task of helping us provide this quality product,” he said while saluting the workers and applauding the management of the resort for hosting the event.
