Hastings Hotels celebrate 367 years of service!

Hastings HotelsHastings Hotels has paid tribute to 18 employees who between them have clocked up 367 years of service at the 5* Culloden Estate & Spa.

To acknowledge this achievement the Chairman of Northern Ireland’s leading hotel collection, Sir William Hastings, hosted an event to celebrate the employees.

“The Culloden Estate & Spa is Northern Ireland’s most prestigious hotel and it would not have the reputation it does today without the hard work and dedication of its staff. I am extremely proud to acknowledge some of the hotel’s longest serving staff members who between the 18 of them have an astounding 366 years employment at the Culloden,” Sir William said.

“This includes 38 years for Philip Drennan the Conference & Banqueting Manager who oversees all the events and weddings, 36 years for Executive Head Chef Paul McKnight and 35 years for Bars Manager Seamus Murphy.

“I would like to thank each and every one of the 18 employees for all their years of hard work and commitment to the Culloden. It can be quite typical in Northern Ireland’s hospitality industry for people to move between outlets and not stay in the one place for such a great length of time, so it is fantastic to see our employees are bucking this trend and dedicating their services to the hotel and its guests,” Sir William added.

Longest serving employee, Philip Drennan said: “It has been an absolute pleasure to dedicate most of my working life to the Culloden and its guests. I know I speak on behalf of all of the 18 employees being recognised by saying that our long service has been made possible due to the fantastic working ethos of Hastings Hotels.

“As a group, it supports all of its employees offering excellent training and opportunities which in turn motivates staff to do the best job possible. And by creating such a pleasant working environment it is no surprise we have so many long serving employees.”
