Up To Par and Taylor Hospitality Recognize Associates Going Above and Beyond at Company Townhall Meeting

Lexington, Va. (January 14, 2020) – Up to Par Management and Taylor Hospitality, leaders in club and hospitality management, have selected the winners for its January Try Hard Awards. Awards were presented at the January Town Hall meeting, held virtually, on January 14.

“These awards help us highlight our teammates who strive to make us the best in the industry,” explains Sean Taylor, founder of Up To Par Management and Taylor Hospitality. “We selected five staff members whose contributions are exemplary within their department and across the company.”

The January 2021 Try Hard Award winners are:

  • Cassidy Miller, Director of Sales, Regency at Dominion Valley
  • Mickey Alford, Maintenance Manager, Bolling Wilson Hotel
  • Paul Carp, Sous Chef, Virginia International Raceway
  • Alexis LaBerge, Marketing Manager, Up To Par Management
  • Abedla Rashid, Food and Beverage Expediter, Heritage Hunt Golf & Country Club

The Try Hard Award is a way for Up To Par to recognize associates who go above and beyond in their role – delivering on our purpose and displaying our core values. Associates who are actively and regularly displaying our values are perfect candidates for the Try Hard Award. Good candidates are not necessarily the loudest or most noticeable. The best candidates are often the ones who are quietly and faithfully working within their roles.

Candidates for the award are nominated by our managers once a month. A winner is chosen by our senior leadership team and recognized at our monthly Town Hall meetings as well as receiving a gift card as a token of appreciation for their hard work and commitment to the company. 

Up To Par recognizes these ‘Try Hards’ because they are the ones who outwork their peers and go above and beyond. Try Hards are all in and committed to doing the work. They take ownership of their position and execute on what they say they are going to do. Most importantly, these exemplary associates have a positive impact on their team, their supervisors, and the guests and members of their respective property. 

Up To Par congratulates all Try Hard award winners for this month.
