This is a month of firsts as we introduce the Star Award which is bestowed upon the employee who did something (or some things) which really stood out. Also, all our of this months winners are actually in some way first-time winners. So please join us for congratulating the following crew members for their incredible efforts at the hostel!

STAR OF THE MONTH – CLEMENT KAJAWO

As mentioned the Star award goes to someone who did something (or some things) which really stood out in the month. This month’s winner had a lot on his shoulders as our public areas guy, Joel and our maintenance man, Julius were both on leave. So what stood out with Clement? Was it that he worked 6 days a week instead of his standard 5 days so that the property was up to standard? Was it that he handled a lot of maintenance-related issues? Or was it that he helped out in housekeeping when there were staff shortages? Well actually it was all of the above. Thank you, Clement, from all of the crew for the hard work you did this last month and for going the extra mile.

MANAGER OF THE MONTH – SANDILE MASEKO

Sandile has been around for a while and has won many Employee of the Month awards as a cook. However, a short while ago he was promoted to Head Cook and has taken the extra responsibility in stride like a champ. Sandile and his team have been working hard and efficiently. When we see him at the Randy, we know we have nothing to worry about as he always has everything under control. So congrats Sandile on your first ever Manager of the Month award… We are sure there will be many more to come!

EMPLOYEE OF THE MONTH – FATIYAH DE KOCK

Fatiyah recently became a permanent crew member at the hostel after working hard and proving to us that she is up for it. However, she didn’t stop there. On no! She then continued to improve and put a whole lot of effort into her work. So much so, that she was recommended for this award by almost all of her fellow never@home crew members. Congrats Fatiyah, we hope you will continue this upward trend!
