As hospitality professionals at the Hillside Bistro, we know it’s summer when our patio is bustling with sun seekers and wine sippers and our staff is thriving in the creative chaos that comes along with a busy summer shift. But like a theatrical performance, there is so much preparation behind the scenes that often goes unrecognized.
The staff at the Hillside Bistro would like to take this opportunity to send our gratitude to Lindsay Wong, bistro manager, for facilitating the ultimate hospitality work environment.
It’s not often that you find a manager who recognizes and develops both individual and team skills, while offering unconditional support, inspiration and incredible leadership. Lindsay offers: foresight (she schedules us up to two months in advance), keen organization (for wine festivals, weddings, staffing, etc.), positive reinforcement (recognizing and appreciating our hard work), communication (regardless of the situation, Lindsay provides clear delegation and a calm and collected voice), and she even brings us snacks (Wouda’s cinnamon buns anyone?).
It really does take an amazing person to be an amazing leader!
A special thank you also goes out to the shareholders of Hillside Winery & Bistro for creating such a cohesive management team, and to all of the Hillside staff, who help make it such a great place to work.
