SANDALS GRANDE ANTIGUA TEAM MEMBER LAUDS THE SANDALS CORPORATE UNIVERSITY IN HER PURSUIT OF SUCCESS

Spa Therapist at Sandals Grande Antigua Resort and Spa, Threcia Thorpe, is sharing her success story with others on the importance of tapping into learning and development opportunities that companies provide for their team members and how it can play a role in individual success.

Thorpe, who has been employed by the regional resort chain for the last 15 years, has been actively engaged in professional development courses through the Sandals Corporate University (SCU), an innovative corporate strategy focused on building Team Members knowledge, skills and attitudes, developing future leaders for Sandals.

She said, “being enrolled in the various hospitality courses throughout my tenure with the company has aided in my personal and professional development goals. The courses are very timely and have motivated me to gain additional international certification with the goal of one day becoming a spa manager.”
The Sandals Corporate University continues to break new ground in the Caribbean by offering a unique opportunity for the resort’s team members.

“This university is the first of its kind in the region, providing a chance for every team member, to receive certification. This is a game-changer for employees who have a desire to advance themselves through education and training,” Sandals General Manager David Latchimy added.

By partnering with internationally recognized universities, professional organizations, and local educational institutions, the SCU ensures that its programmes are of the highest quality and meet industry standards.

Thorpe, who is now currently enrolled at the Spa Education Academy in England where she is pursuing a program in Spa and Salon Management encourages her fellow team members and colleagues to take advantage of the courses available on SCU’s interactive learning platform. She credits the SCU for providing the foundation and motivation for her to take this step. She believes that investing in education and continuous learning is crucial in today’s ever-evolving job market.

“Threcia’s success story serves as an inspiration to other team members at Sandals Grande Antigua Resort and Spa to take advantage of the learning and development opportunities available to them and reach their full potential. With the support and resources provided by the SCU, team members like Thorpe can achieve their dreams and become leaders in their respective fields”, Sandals Learning and Development Manager Carlene Spencer added.

The Sandals Corporate University is a testament to the company’s commitment to investing in its team members. By providing access to education and creating opportunities for growth, Sandals is not only creating a highly skilled workforce but also contributing to the development of the Caribbean region.
