Eighteen young-at-heart colleagues recently retired from the Radisson Aruba Resort Casino & Spa. The resort made the extra funds available and associates made use of their right for early retirement.
Following discussions with eligible candidates those reaching the appropriate age were give the option to receive a handsome amount of money and stop working or perhaps embark on a new career or a new challenge. Those who turned the offer down, and opted to keep on working were also applauded for their decision to stay.
General manager Gary Jutz thanked his retiring members of staff for their many years of service and for their numerous contributions to his resort and wished them good luck in their new endeavors. JutzÂ pointed out that the Carlson companies traditionally took care of their associates and that the voluntary retirement was just one example of the company’s unfailing support of its most valuable resource, its associates.
Interim Director of Human Resources, Glenn Farro then acted as party emcee entertaining the audience with tales and anecdotes as the retirees were called to the stage to receive a plaques and a handshake.
