A pastry chef, an executive houseman, a night auditor, a social director. These are only a few of the 24 super-inclusive, SuperClubs teams members from Jamaica, the Bahamas and Cuba, who are vying for top prizes worth over $1,500,000 (including a Caribbean Cruise, a scholarship to study in the United States, and US$1000.00) in the first ever competition of its kind within the Jamaican hotel industry.
The contest, designed to take the motivation and recognition of its super team members to another dazzling height, is another innovation of the John Issa-led chain of hotels, which first introduced the ‘all-inclusive’ concept to Jamaica.
When the contestants meet for the Grand Finale, at Trelawny Beach and Fun Resort on September 5,2000, it will be veritable head to head showcase of knowledge, Caribbean creativity (in costume), tantalizing talent (cameo performances), and superior style (deportment) displayed by SuperClubs employees.
Brainchild of executive vice-president of SuperClubs, Joe Issa, and the competition was born out of the recognition of the essential role played by the greatest asset in the building of the fine SuperClubs tradition – its human resources. The idea, further fine-tuned by vice-president of Human Resources, Dr. Errol Holmes, dual focus: to promote the talents and creativity of team members within the SuperClubs resorts, and to reward and further encourage the breadth and accuracy of knowledge of information particular to SuperClubs Resorts and concerning the Jamaican and Caribbean tourism product, in general.
Now, with only days to go to the finals contestants are polishing their skills and replenishing their knowledge base to make a good show at winning the sectional awards (male and female) for Best Talent Piece, Best Costume, or Most Aware Contestant.
