Wednesday, July 16, 2008 (Shawnee on Delaware, Pennsylvania) — The Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort was nominated for Happenings Magazine’s 2008 “Best Companies to Work for in North East Pennsylvania” award in the medium business category.
The award was based on nominations sent in by employees, and was open to all businesses located throughout Northeast Pennsylvania. The entry forms asked employees to outline the positive aspects of working for their company.
Shawnee received six nominations mentioning perks such as complimentary or discounted rates for resort activities such as spa treatments, fitness facilities, and golf. In addition, employees receive free passes to broadway quality plays at The Shawnee Playhouse, and an opportunity to work in a wonderful environment where beautiful surroundings and friendly people are the most common decorations.
Rob Howell, General Manger of The Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort said, “Happy employees make for happy guests. Finding the right balance between operational expectations, performance rewards and a positive atmosphere is a challenge for any group of managers. The Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort is working diligently to find that balance.”
Another aspect that makes Shawnee a wonderful place to work is the resort’s commitment to the community and environment. Staff members of the inn are able to participate in numerous community and environmental projects spanning from The United Way’s “Day of Caring” to Shawnee’s annual “River Road Cleanup”. In this regard, The Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort encourages employees to volunteer in activities that will not only benefit the community but also enrich the lives of countless individuals.
