Recently the Blue Energy committee of the Hilton Aruba Caribbean Resort & Casino organized a PLANTation celebration, an appreciation day in which departments exchanged plants and thoughtful cards with each other.
This initiative brought joy and enthusiasm to the workplace as many of the team members are gardeners at heart.
The Engineering department started the thread by awarding a planter to Food & Beverage who paid it forward to Front Office, who in turn delivered to the Kitchen.
Each department then kept the chain of sharing going, granting a symbol of life and growth throughout the hotel from Purchasing and Accounting to Security, Commercial, Housekeeping, Recreation, Spa, Executive office, wrapping up with Engineering, completing the circle of sharing.
While not everyone is blessed with a green thumb, plant lovers were pleased with the gift exchange, and marveled at the gratitude expressed by each department to one another while adding warmth and light to each area.
Engineering remarked that easy-care varieties of plants were selected, and since every department was included, no one was green with envy!
