PREM ENGAGE & Excellence Awards 2018

We celebrated excellence in hospitality at an awards ceremony and dinner at Tulfarris Hotel & Golf Resort in Co. Wicklow (3rd October). The awards, which were attended by 170 people were part of the company’s ‘ENGAGE’ programme which encourages group wide entrepreneurialism at all levels within the company. The programme is the brain child of our HR Manager, Sarah Marr and began in the early part of 2018 by inviting employees to submit ideas and suggestions on how business, services, products and employee wellbeing can be improved across the group.

35 teams were registered as participating in ENGAGE projects throughout the year with 8 teams making it to the final. The Aspect Hotel in Kilkenny came out on top and took the top prize for their project, ‘Tip Top Teams’, a project which focuses on employee wellbeing.

Guests flew in from England, Scotland, France, The Netherlands, and Belgium, with more colleagues travelling to the Wicklow resort from all around Ireland.Guests who arrived in the earlier part of the day were treated to a golf tutorial with Tulfarris PGA Golf professional Tom O’Neill before enjoying a cocktail reception in the Manor House, hosted by PREM Group CEO, Jim Murphy. Later, guests enjoyed baby pumpkin, followed by Irish beef or roast darne of Irish sea cod which was followed by a dark chocolate and hazelnut mousse prepared by Executive Head Chef Eddie McDermott and his team. The celebrations went on late into the evening when guests took to the floor to enjoy music and dancing to the sounds of The Blue Romantics
