In the vibrant city of Miami, Florida, Heart of the House and Servantex recently hosted their first-ever President’s Club Awards, commemorating the exceptional accomplishments of their high-performing staff.

Awardees were treated to a multi-day South Beach excursion filled with team-building activities, evening festivities, and a grand awards gala.

In attendance were shining stars from Heart of the House who staff the world’s leading hotel and food and beverage brands. Joining Heart of the House’s top performers were award winners from Servantex, the hospitality staffing company’s parent company who provides executive leadership, legal, finance, IT and HR support.

Acknowledging and appreciating employees is deeply ingrained in the company’s culture, and President’s Club went beyond just honoring top-performing managers and markets. It also extended recognition to the supporting departments and staff members who have played an indispensable role in the organization’s rapid growth.

Before the night concluded, employees a took a moment to show their gratitude for the principals of the company. In a touching tribute, Chris Taylor, CEO, and Kenia Gonzalez, Vice President of Operations, were presented with the Diamond Star Award for consistently prioritizing the company’s mission of caring for people in their leadership.
