BOOMERANG! A Corporate Social Responsibility Program giving back to The Hospitality Industry

The Above and Beyond Foundation offers a turnkey Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program that recognizes and rewards outstanding hospitality industry individual(s) working on your actual meeting or incentive program in progress. From the motor coach driver that transfers the guests safely from the airport, to the doorman who greets them, servers, housekeepers, tour guides, AV techs and everyone behind the scenes; are all included.  With the attendees input, one (or more) outstanding individual(s) will be awarded a life-changing $10,000 cash grant from The Above and Beyond Foundation, in the name of the host company, on-site, during your company’s meeting or incentive program.

The process is simple, time sensitive and effective, informing both workers and attendees about the program details in advance. The attendees will be part of the initiative by “keeping a look out” for outstanding individuals they encounter throughout the program.  If the host company is including an APP for their program, a module can be built that will allow attendees to nominate via the APP. Alternatively, a simple ticket exchange tally program is also viable.  Back-of-the-house employees will also be included in the process by having the nominated front-of-the-house employees select a different back-of-the-house team member each time they get a nomination.   The entire process runs the duration of the meeting and will culminate with an awards ceremony celebrating the winner(s) at an appropriate time during your meeting schedule.
