The next generation of hospitality professionals

Kids at work at Westin

This past Tuesday morning, it was “Take your Kid to Work Day” at The Westin Aruba Resort.  Associates were encouraged to bring their children to work so that they can have a better understanding of what mom and dad do all day, as well as experience what it is like to work in different departments within the resort.
The island’s next generation of hospitality executives got to spend the morning in the kitchen, with housekeeping, the front office, the executive offices, the Kid’s Club, the fitness center, and various other aspects of the inner-workings of the property.
Later that morning, over snacks and drinks, representatives from Animal Rights Aruba, an organization that The Westin Aruba Resort is a proud supporter of, gave a presentation on pet care at home and brought small animals like a chicken, turtles, and a dog for the children to interact with. The children also received goody bags donated by the T.E.A.M. Worker’s Union at The Westin Aruba Resort.
The day was a big success, leaving the kids with a better appreciation for their parent’s responsibilities at work and also feeling like a part of The Westin Aruba family.
