According to the press release, “Not only a recipient of the prestigious award, with just 100 employers on the 2021 list, the Nonantum Resort is the only one in the hospitality industry to be nominated. Based on the results of a customer satisfaction survey. employees, as well as on employee benefits and workplace policies, the price is increasingly important in today’s job market where employee shortages abound and competition for staff is heightened. .

“The award undoubtedly offers a glimpse into the satisfaction of current employees at their place of work, but also of the places where job seekers may wish to apply as they assess their employment options.”

“The award is incredibly well deserved and reflects the effort made by the entire team, as well as the positive tone set by owner Jean Ginn Marvin and general manager Tina Hewett-Gordon,” said Hannah Lamprey, marketing coordinator at Nonantum, in an email. “Coming out of the particularly difficult 2020 season, we weren’t sure what the 2021 season would bring. We were faced with staff shortages, unprecedented numbers of travelers and had to somehow organize two wedding seasons into one. It had the potential to make for a horrible work experience in 2021. However, it couldn’t be further from our reality.

“Despite everything that went against us, we were able to lean on our managers and each other to create a collaborative victory during our high season. Every player on our team fairly deserves this award for this reason, and that’s why it’s more special than ever to win this year. “

Customer reviews in the 2021 season reflect a similar picture:

“We know a lot of places are understaffed just like the Nonantum, but you would never know by the professionalism and friendliness of all the staff,” Carrie, an August guest, wrote on Tripadvisor. “We have seen many staff members multitask on a given day; we heard the owner was doing the dishes and the general manager was waiting for tables. It says a lot about the way a facility is run with a focus on customers and staff.

According to the press release, “The magazine, and countless others, echo what the award means, the Nonantum Resort has been and continues to be an exceptional work environment where employees are supported, valued and rewarded. “
