Blue Sky Leisure Celebrate Staff at Annual Conference


Miss Ali Hampson, a Restaurant Supervisor at ZAKS Fine American Restaurant, Mousehold Heath, Norwich, has beaten off stiff competition from 170 of her fellow employees to win Blue Sky Leisure’s ‘Superhero of the Year’ award 2009. Now in its fifth year, the internal awards are held annually by Blue Sky Leisure, which owns Kelling Heath Holiday Park, Woodhill Holiday Park, Blue Sky Homes and ZAKS Fine American Restaurants.

Ali, 38, who lives in Norwich and has worked at ZAKS for ten years, received the award in recognition for her excellent customer service.

“It’s such an honour to win the award because there is so many other dedicated staff at Blue Sky Leisure,” said Ali. “I always try to make customer needs a priority and it’s the little things that count and being a step ahead to ensure they are happy. I think it’s very important to treat customers as I would want to be treated when I go out for a meal.

” Ian Hacon, Chief Executive Officer of Blue Sky Leisure, said: “Ali is a superb candidate and a perfect example of the high level of service Blue Sky Leisure offers across all its businesses. Nothing is too much trouble for her and we had so many nominations throughout 2009 for her excellent customer service.”

The ‘Superhero of the Year’ award was presented at Blue Sky Leisure’s Annual Conference, where the keynote speaker was environmental journalist Penney Poyzer, who praised the Group’s dedication to the environment and sustainability. As well as the main award a number of other awards were also given for long service.

The conference also underlined the Group’s commitment to the Investors In People (IIP) scheme, with the announcement that it has recently won the Bronze award. Winning Bronze is a huge achievement for the Group, and we are aspiring to Gold in the future,” said Ian Hacon.
