Willemstad (March 20th ,2018) – The award ceremony of the Stars of the Industry 4th quarter of 2017 was held at CHATA member Landhuis Bloemhof. During this event, the 1st quarter employees and supervisors nominated by a variety of CHATA members were recognized and celebrated. All the nominees received a gift provided by BlueBay Golf & Beach Resort, Sunscape Curacao Resort, Spa & Casino and Landhuis Bloemhof.

Each quarter CHATA focuses on a different personal quality a person has that brings out the best in them while working in the hospitality/tourism industry. The focus of this quarter is helping one another.

According to President & CEO, Mr. Miles Mercera, “Helping others creates a sense of meaning in our lives. It fulfills some of the most basic needs such as connecting with others and creating lasting relationships. By having lasting relationships, one promotes team spirit and earns a sense of belonging. This as a result, increases productivity and also ensures a pleasant working environment. Someone once said, “Together we can achieve more!” This is because there is power in a group of people who work together toward a common goal. A strong team, brings out the best in each member and makes it possible for the team to achieve something that one man only never could.
