An employee perspective -
Written by Sonia Marques, Hostess at The Grill
The COVID-19 pandemic came as a shock for everyone all over the world. We all had to quickly adapt to a new way of living. Being away from home during this time has been very difficult as this is obviously something that none of us have ever experienced before and we do not know what to expect. Many clubs have had to stop operating during this time and some have even had to send their staff home, as there is no work for them. Workaway International and the respective country clubs along with SAA have done a great job in arranging a charter flight to bring the participants home during this time.
Addison Reserve Country Club has successfully managed to operate a non-contact delivery service for our members and we are therefore still able to work throughout this pandemic. We were given the option to go home if we wanted to, which some people chose to, however, those who chose to stay until the end of our contracts were given this opportunity too. Addison Reserve has done a phenomenal job of keeping us safe and having our best interests in mind. While working, we observe all safety measures as well as wear face masks and gloves to ensure that both the employees and the members are kept safe. Our staff, including management, has been divided into 2 teams, as to minimize the amount of contact we have with each other. We offer deliveries during lunch and dinner, as well as the market menu, where our members can order groceries and household supplies.
Although we are in unprecedented times, the best thing we can do is follow the advice from professionals. Practice social distancing, keep physically and mentally active and healthy as well as try our best to keep a positive attitude.
We’re all in this together!
“Your positive action combined with positive thinking results in success.”
