Goodwill Industries of the Southern Piedmont, Inc.
January 27, 2010
Goodwill Industries of the Southern Piedmont is making a difference in the Charlotte area Hospitality Community. By training clients in most aspects of the hospitality industry, they are helping to create knowledgeable applicants new to our industry. I have been involved since the foundation of this training program, and have seen constant attention and ongoing improvement to the program. Through careful screening of program applicants and thorough training, the calibre of their graduates is consistently very high. Because of the high attendance and participation expectations for the attendees, I have the confidence that most Goodwill Hospitality Training Program graduates will demonstrate interest, enthusiasm and reliability if they become associates at our hotel. In fact, one of our associates who graduated from the program has received such positive guest recognition that she has received our Associate of the Month award, a "Spirit to Serve" award from our corporate offices, and a promotion during her tenure here. We are very pleased to be participants and beneficiaries of the Goodwill Industries of the Southern Piedmont Hospitality Training Program.
