Pan-European hostel and bar operator Beds and Bars led by CEO Keith Knowles, has unveiled it’s Employee of the Year after a vigorous search and interview process.
On September 29, 2015 at the company’s Hercules Pillars pub in central London, Keith and the board of Beds and Bars awarded Jennifer van der Linde this much sought after accolade, with Hamish McNeil, Tristan Chittleborough and Darian Creasey named as close runners up.
PR Manager for Beds and Bars Robert Savage said: “It was a very intense process with candidates from across the sites in ten cities and seven countries, nominated by their managers for exceptional achievements – above and beyond the call of duty – in addition to embodying the Beds and Bars mantra – Live Your Life! We couldn’t be happier for Jennifer, who in addition to receiving a generous cash prize, will also enjoy an extra week of paid holiday.”
Jennifer was nominated for Employee of the Year after being put forward for the Employee of the Month award, four times in the past financial year. Primarily she was recognised for her work as a Hostel Ambassador – enhancing the customer experience – during her time at the St Christopher’s Inns hostel in Greenwich. Jennifer is now a Hostel Manager at St Christopher’s Inns, London Bridge – the company’s flagship UK hostel.
