And the winner is…

We are delighted to announce that Sarah Cole is the 2015 Milsom Hotels & Restaurant ‘Employee of the Year’. Sarah started working with the company through Milsom Catering, mainly as a stop gap while she pursued her aim to join the Royal Navy. However, good sense prevailed and Paul Milsom persuaded her to work for us in a sort of ‘roving manager’ role which means that Sarah works throughout the group wherever she’s needed. Sarah is a true Merchant of Happiness (the Milsom motto), no task whether large or small daunts her and she’s popular with guests and her peers alike.

Before announcing the main award at a special lunch for all awardees, Paul Milsom mentioned that it was good to see people from all across the group from the front of house, receptionists, chefs, general managers and kitchen porters. He said that every member of staff present were worthy winners and had given much to the company during the past year.

The Employee Awards were started in Spring 2015, with all members of staff in each property voting for their peers every quarter to become Employee of the Season, these winners then go through to the Employee of the Year award.
