Embracing Diversity: How Park Avenue Hotel is Leading in Inclusive Employment

By April 27, 2023June 22nd, 2023No Comments

The Park Avenue Hotel in Rockhampton, which is part of the Star Hotel Group, has demonstrated an outstanding commitment to inclusivity by employing five people with disability across various areas of the hotel. These individuals work in the kitchen, bar, restaurant, and cleaning departments.

Joblife Employment Rockhampton, has worked closely with the Park Avenue Hotel and its manager, Shawn Noyes, to provide ongoing support to these participants. Joblife staff Noella and Becci have developed a strong professional relationship with the hotel family and even celebrated team events at the restaurant.

What sets the Park Avenue Hotel apart as a “star” employer is its dedication to treating these participants as valuable members of the team. The hotel and Joblife Employment work together to ensure the participants are included in team activities, receive roster flexibility for medical and family support, and are supported to achieve their goals.

In addition to the benefits for the participants, the Park Avenue Hotel’s inclusive practices also benefit the company as a whole. Studies have shown that companies that prioritize diversity and inclusion often experience improved productivity, increased employee morale, and a more positive company culture.

Joblife Employment is grateful for the hotel’s continued support and wants to give a big shoutout to the Park Avenue Hotel for setting an example of how inclusive practices can benefit everyone involved.
