Golden Tulip Assists Staff's Awards
TWENTY CHILDREN and wards of employees of Golden Tulip Accra (GTA) have been awarded scholarships to study at various SSS and tertiary institutions during the coming academic year.
The packages were presented to the recipients at a ceremony at the hotel's premises last weekend.
Fourteen of the recipients, including nine girls, will enter SSS; three, all girls, will continue their SSS education, while the remaining three, including one girl, will enter tertiary institutions.
Mr. Thom Sheriff, General Manager of GTA, noted at the presentation ceremony that his company's Collective Agreement with its employees has shifted focus from mere periodic adjustments in salary to "mutually fruitful areas of social responsibility."
Apart from providing scholarship to staff's wards, GTA, he said, is also gradually shouldering "the burden of family health."
"We hope that we will be able to off-load the health and education burdens off our employees and redirect their freed mental energies to the total service of our guest," Mr. Sheriff added.
Those at the function included some parents/guardians of the recipients as well as GTA's Human Resource Manager, Mr. Kojo Hazel; local ICU chairman, Mr. Felix Torsu; Legal officer, Mr. Charles Antwi and Mr. Bertha de Graft Johnson, Head of Marketing.
