(CMR) Dorothy Robinson has been awarded the Room Attendant Award as part of the annual 2018 Marriott International Awards of Excellence for her dedication to the Ritz-Carlton Grand Cayman property.
Robinson is one of only 10 individuals chosen from 32 brands and 6,500 properties around the world to be honored this year. She is also the only award recipient from Latin American and the Caribbean beating out 250 other persons for the coveted recognition.
When we spoke with Robinson recently she shared her passion for hospitality and what she does: “I love my work and I love my customers and company. I try to show them what Cayman Kind hospitality is all about every day.”
Robinson is originally from Jamaica but has lived in the Cayman Islands for over twenty-five years. Other recipients represent properties across the globe including Brazil, Australia, Portugal, UAE, Canada, and the USA.
Each year, the Marriott Awards of Excellence recognizes the â€śbest of the bestâ€ť at Marriott International. Established in 1987 and named after our founder, the J. Willard Marriott Award of Excellence honors the companyâ€™s finest associates who represent the characteristics of the award: achievement, character, dedication, effort, and perseverance. Additionally, four group awards acknowledge outstanding corporate citizenship, diversity and inclusion efforts, excellence in demonstrating the companyâ€™s core values, and creating a TakeCare culture of health and well-being. All of these stories exemplify the core values of Marriott International.
Managed and franchised employees from more than 6,500 properties around the world and across the companyâ€™s 30 brands can be nominated for an AOE Award.
This year, 10 extraordinary employees received the AOE Award this past May in Maryland.
These honorees exemplify Marriottâ€™s core values and legendary spirit to serve and bring these to life for guests every day. In addition, four outstanding properties will also be honored with the Alice S. Marriott Award for Community Service, the J.W. Marriott, Jr. Diversity Excellence Award, the Stephen Garff Marriott Award of Excellence for Culture, and the Debbie Marriott Harrison TakeCare Award of Excellence.
