stand out employee: herlinda
Meet our Stand Out Employee for May, Herlinda!
Herlinda has been working with us at the girl & the fig as a Host since 2015, and she has quickly become a familiar friendly face to our guests and a superstar employee to her managers. Choosing Herlinda as this month’s Stand Out Employee was unanimous among the management staff.
From her managers:
“Herlinda is always quick with a smile and gives the impression that she is genuinely happy to see each and every person that walks through the door. Over the last year, Herlinda has grown tremendously as a person and as an employee; she demonstrates great leadership of the host team making sure all new trainees are set for success while trying to infect them with her constant enthusiasm for the fig and for life itself.”
We asked Herlinda a few questions about herself - get to know this stand-out employee a little better, and visit us soon at the girl & the fig!
