It’s a sustained approach that began two years ago and has touched almost every aspect of our employees’ lives in very meaningful ways. The pandemic has wreaked havoc not just on the industry, but on everyone working in tourism and hospitality, and I believe our dedication to ensuring employee well-being, not just for our own colleagues but in the entire sector, has resulted in our successful recovery as a destination.
