Southport Visiter - - Visiter Active -

THE Bold Ho­tel in South­port is send­ing mem­bers of staff jet­ting off on hol­i­day with its em­ployee in­cen­tive scheme.

The first win­ners of the scheme, which is de­signed to re­ward staff for their hard work, were an­nounced at an awards cer­e­mony at the ho­tel on Mon­day evening.

Joanna Bal­cius, a mem­ber of bar staff at the Bold Ho­tel and Punch Tarmey’s in Lord Street, was the win­ner of the first prize af­ter com­ing out on top of the points scor­ing sys­tem and she will be fly­ing to New York.

The in­cen­tive scheme was launched in Au­gust and staff were el­i­gi­ble for points de­pend­ing on sev­eral fac­tors, in­clud­ing show­ing will­ing­ness to sup­port the Bold’s ethos, and pro­vide ex­cel­lent customer ser­vice.

Joanna won a three­night trip to New York with her hus­band, Man­tas Bal­cius, who is a door su­per­vi­sor at Punch Tarmey’s.

In se­cond place, and win­ning a trip to Am­s­ter­dam, was Tracey Booth who works front of house.

In third place, win­ning a trip to London was kitchen as­sis­tant To­masz Grosz.

Af­ter the awards cer­e­mony, all staff were given tick­ets to the Ser­vice In­dus­try Ball at South­port The­atre and Con­ven­tion Cen­tre on Mon­day night to cel­e­brate.

Joanna, who started work­ing at the Bold Ho­tel in March last year, said: “I am over the moon to have won the trip, I can’t quite be­lieve it.

“But I have worked hard over the last few months and it is amaz­ing that it is recog­nised in this way.”

She added: “I’ve never been to Amer­ica be­fore, so I can­not wait.

“The man­age­ment have re­ally helped me to learn new skills and de­velop and I am grate­ful to them for their sup­port.

“There is a great team of staff at the Bold and Punch Tarmey’s and they make go­ing to work very en­joy­able.”

An­drew Mikhail, owner of the Bold Ho­tel and Punch Tarmey’s, said: “We like to re­ward staff for their hard work when they go above and be­yond what is ex­pected of them, so we saw this scheme as an ex­cel­lent way of mon­i­tor­ing this.

“Joanna has demon­strated her com­mit­ment to the com­pany, as have Tracey and To­masz, through their hard work and will­ing­ness to get stuck in. We hope she has a won­der­ful time in New York – she de­serves it!”

The Bold Ho­tel un­der­went an ex­ten­sive re­fur­bish­ment dur­ing the early part of last year and now fea­tures 25 en-suite bed­rooms.
