Three Cork women recognised for 15 years of service at Cork International Hotel
Three team members from Trigon Hotels are celebrating 15 years of friendship since they started their careers at the Cork International Hotel in 2007.
The three women, who have gone through marriages, family and loss together, have been honoured at The “Long Service Awards”.
The annual awards are to recognise the dedication and contribution of team members.
The three team members are Carmel Lonergan, Kylie Basnett and Sarah Mullins.
Carmel Lonergan is the Director of Group Operations at Trigon Hotels, Kylie Basnett is Group Corporate & MICE Sales Manager and Sarah Mullins is Front Office Supervisor.
Trigon Hotels, which include Cork International Hotel and The Metropole Hotel in Cork city, is passionate about creating a positive culture, facilitating work-life balance and promoting flexibility with working hours which the three team members say has been an important factor in their long service to the hotel.
Speaking about her years with the company, Carmel Lonergan said it has given her a great career with many opportunities along the way.
“In some ways hospitality has been taken for granted and is not recognised for all the amazing training and development it gives. There are so many opportunities in hospitality where you can work your way across and up the business to build experience and confidence. No matter your starting point, there is a path for everyone. I’ve taken a traditional route through a trainee management development programme but the best way is to talk to us and see what suits your learning best. It’s different for everyone and doors will open that you may never have thought of before.”
