Saskatoon’s landmark hotel, the Sheraton Cavalier, and its general manager John Bevis, were honoured for exemplary human resources by the Hotel Association of Canada earlier this month.
The hotel, which has been owned and operated by the same local family since its inception in 1962, won the association’s Hall of Fame Award of Excellence earlier this month.
“Creating a fun atmosphere, a feeling of belonging, demonstrating respect for individual effort, dedication and potential make this hotel a clear choice as the next inductee into the Hotel Association of Canada’s Hall of Fame,” said the Canadian Tourism Human Resource Council’s Martha Cummings.
The hotel boasts an impressive staff retention rate (36 per cent of staff have been with the hotel for more than five years), and a number of employee benefit initiatives that position the property as an employer of choice in the province.
The award is given to an individual, team or property who or which, through their actions over an extended period of time, have contributed in a manner beyond the expectation of daily business.
The award is sponsored by the Canadian Tourism Human Resource Council and
