Saiyad Samim Shah could not contain his happiness during the Reddy Groups staff recognition at the Tanoa International Hotel, Nadi, on Wednesday night.

The 29-year-old father of two scooped the ‘Our Company award’ for his passion, dedication and hard work repeating a feat he won in 2010.

“First of all I thank the general manager (Narendra Kumar of Tanoa Waterfront Hotel) because I’ve learnt a lot from him for the past 10 years working there,” he said.

“He has shown me The Tanoa Way in giving so much.”

Mr Shah started his career at Tanoa as a cleaner in 2006, then became a conference setter and now is the company driver and an attendant.

The 2014 Our People award was presented to Rusila Kotoilakeba of the same hotel.

“It’s the Tanoa way; it’s like a cycle, our guest, our people and our company as our Directors have always motivated us saying as our people, if they are empowered our guest will be satisfied. If the guests are satisfied then our company will get the satisfactory as well,” she said.

The 23-year-old single mum from Oneata, Waiqori, Lau said she owes her award to all at Tanoa Waterfront staff, her family especially her son.

Three years ago in September 5, 2012 Ms Kotoilakeba began her career with the hotel as a front office staff.

Uphold The Tanoa Way Reddy Urges
Reddy Group of Companies director Rohit Reddy urged staff members on Wednesday to uphold The Tanoa Way at all times.
He made those remarks during Staff Recognition Awards night.
He said three things that shape – The Tanoa Ways: Culture, Heritage and people which make them different at the Tanoa Hotel Group and Reddy group.
Mr Reddy said: “The first is our Culture, as we are a very open, friendly and give it a go company and have a never say die attitude.
“Very open, means that most people got access to the chairman. And I think in most companies you don’t have that. But we’ve got access and are very open to the chairman.”
