Solihull Chamber of Commerce has revealed the shortlist for its annual awards, and hogarths have been nominated!
The hogarths team are proud to have been shortlisted for an award within the Solihull Chamber of Commerce annual awards. The team are nominated for the Outstanding Contribution to Community Award.
“Form is temporary, Class is permanent”.
It would be very easy for hogarths as a business to help here and there, when asked to do so. Or in other words show some good form. There is a culture within the hogarths Team. A feeling that we have a role in our community to make things happen, support initiatives, and help people. This is class.
Perhaps our core values of customer service, and wanting to make sure guests have the best experience possibly inspire us to help others achieve their goals.
Perhaps our willingness to take on roles such as Solihull Chamber President (Robert Elliot), a Governor of Alderbrook School (Olly Shepherd), a Director of British Hospitality Association (Steven Quick), a National Apprenticeship Ambassador (Emma Griffiths), a Enterprise Advisor (Ellie Beattie) and to become business advisors, group leaders, facilitators, hosts, supporters, participants, cheerleaders, and fund raisers has become a good habit?
It’s most likely because we love doing it. Hard work results in a feeling of real fulfilment, pride, and sense of wellbeing. Many of the people we meet are inspirational beyond measurement.
In recent years, and as time progresses hogarths have been and will continue to be involved in a whole series of events and initiatives. These will benefit organisations, individuals, and age groups across Solihull and the wider Midlands.
While some activity is all encompassing and enjoyed by the whole family, we have also embarked on projects that benefit other age groups, particularly the young, but also the mature of years. This is where our Academy really shines. We aim to provide as much local support to schools and colleges to help promote our fantastic industry as sometimes it is missed in general curriculum. With the growth of our Academy, we are now working with Solihull College to influence their curriculum for Travel and Tourism to help their students gain invaluable industry-specific knowledge and it has also allowed us to take on more work experience and industry placements than ever.
The team work tirelessly to support local businesses, charities and events and to be rewarded this recognition for the hard work that the team put in really shines through. Group HR Manager Emma Griffiths comments ” The awards had a very high number of high quality entries this year so it’s fantastic that we have been shortlisted as a finalist for this awards. Thank you to everyone in our hogarths family, for helping us be an amazing team ,who really do help individuals and the local community in so many ways.”
The hogarths team know we are up against some very talented competition, good luck to all those who have been shortlisted. We look forward to celebrating with you at the annual awards on 17th October.
