LAWTON, OK – Comanche Nation Entertainment (CNE) – operator of Comanche Nation Casinos – recognized its housekeeping and environmental services team members in a week-long celebration during International Housekeeping and Environmental Services Week. The effort was part of the company’s “Family First-Comanche Cares” initiative to show appreciation for members of the CNE family.
“We never want to miss an opportunity to show our team members our gratitude for their efforts and professionalism they display every day,” said Jack Crane, COO of CNE. “We want each of our team members to always feel like they are an important part of our CNE family.”
The Family First-Comanche Cares initiative not only includes efforts to recognize individual and groups of team members throughout the company for their work, but it is also an extension of CNE’s efforts to put their team member’s own families first.
“We treat members of our staff like family and we support their responsibilities at home with their own families,” said Crane. “Team members should not have to worry about missing their children’s appointments, games or school functions because of work. Family should always come first.”
International Housekeeping and Environmental Services Week at CNE was led by the company’s Human Resources Director Tisha Henson in partnership with PDS Gaming. Throughout the week, team members were treated to a variety of experiences and gifts including a breakfast celebration, pizza party, gift bags with messages of appreciation, an ice cream celebration and on the final day – cake, punch and unique prizes for each hotel and environmental services team member. Prizes consisted of a variety of family-centric gift baskets including a campfire kit, complete with a family pack of s’mores ingredients, and a fishing kit stocked full of everything needed for a memorable day fishing out on the water.
“The entire week was filled with so much appreciation for these team members,” said Henson. “Hotel and environmental services roles are not normally seen or noticed by guests, and so they often do not get as much recognition for their incredibly hard work. They keep our properties clean and our company in working order.”
