From June 16 – 21, the Aruba Marriott celebrated Associate Appreciation Week (AAW), an annual Marriott International celebration that recognizes the hard work and dedication of over 146,000 associates worldwide.
The celebrations kicked off Friday afternoon with an outdoor BBQ. On Monday associates participated with an on-site scavenger hunt and brain gymnastics. On Tuesday morning, many associates joined a special hike tour at the National Arikok Park while others got sportive and played paintball in the afternoon. Over one hundred fifty associates gathered Wednesday morning in the Casino for a game of Bingo. Several associates were lucky and won cash prices. At night teams geared up for the car rally, where associates drive around the island and receive crazy fun assignments to win. Thursday morning associates geared up for exercising with early Zumba and sports events at the beach. The afternoon was family time for associates and their little ones. A special treat was the movie night with the new release of Monsters Inc University at Paseo Herencia cinemas. The Associate Appreciation Week ended on Friday with a morning beach walk, balloon classes and a jam-packed bowling night at Eagle bowling.
Associate Appreciation Week 2013 was another great celebration week for the Marriott’s associates. The Human Resource department did an excellent job organizing the week. For more photos of the Aruba Marriott Appreciation Week, visit the official Facebook fan page www.facebook.com/ArubaMarriott.
