This is also the perfect time to understand the differences of our associates and understand the vast cultures represented in the company by pairing and celebrating with a sister hotel in another country.
For Celebrating Our People Week 2014, Hyatt Regency McCormick Place was paired with the Park Hyatt Shanghai. Throughout the week we’ve had all kinds of delighters and activities to show our staff some of the culture of Shanghai as well as our appreciation for their hard work. We had treat carts making the rounds to the various departments, receptions at the employee entrance giving out coffee and donuts in the morning and cupcakes in the afternoon, gifts of drawstring Celebrating Our People Week backpacks, and the week ended with a big celebration yesterday in our Prairie Room.
The celebration included a catered lunch from a local Chinese restaurant whose owner is from Shanghai and traditional Chinese decorations including parasols, lanterns, and fans. There was even a selfie station where employees could capture themselves in front of a Shanghai inspired backdrop. We also through in some favorite American past times such as inflatable bowling, Wii bowling, and mini-golf. And of course we had to air yesterday’s USA vs. Germany World Cup match for our associates to watch during their lunch.
At Hyatt, our associates make all the difference, and we had a great week Celebrating Our People! Want to be a part of the Hyatt team? We’re hiring!
