Just a day as any other days if you know you know. How to balance life outside and inside. Management was okay I guess. A very tight workplace culture.

General life at Fairmont Zimbali Lodge and Resort

It was a stunning environment with best policies for employees to adhere to easily. Fun with its achievement awards and celebrations on a monthly basis which I was full member. The sad part in my career was to always feel bad when an employee is terminated or dismissed for bad behavior. No employee was carrying lunch boxes as lunch was provided. Even breakfast, employees used to gather at dining hall for breakfast and then start work. Lovely company though. I used to train line managers in the field of disciplinary. This is a multicultural organization as we had all races, real rainbow nation with best values of unity.
