The tireless efforts undertaken by Le Manoir aux Quat' Saisons in recognising the importance of a strong human resources team in driving business won the Oxfordshire hotel the Excellence in HR accolade at the annual HR in Hospitality Awards.
Held at the Park Plaza Riverside in London, the awards ceremony heard how the HR policy, headed by HR director Julia Murrell, at the 29-bedroom hotel and two-Michelin star restaurant is an excellent role model for the industry.
The Links with Schools and Colleges award was presented to Natalie Wild of Marriott Hollins Hall in Shipley, West Yorkshire, for her proactive and energetic efforts in liaising with young people.
Meanwhile, the HR Rising Star award went to Rakhee Patel of the Dorchester Collection for her "persistence and professionalism" and the award for Excellence in Learning & Talent was presented to PPHE Hotel Group, in recognition of an initiative to harness young talent.
More than £5,000 was raised during the presentation evening for the hospitality industry's two charities, Springboard and Hospitality Action.
