Town Hall messages were delivered by the respective General Managers, Dixie Eng and owner Leah Fried Sedwick in Springfield and Ellen Haynes and Steve Jones, President in Dulles. Paychecks and tips were distributed.
In Springfield, Dixie led a question and answer session to refresh the team on our services offered at Olde Towne Pet Resort. An Easter egg hunt was conducted with prizes for all. Each egg contained a question and answer or a pet proverb. The menu was Chinese food from nearby Panda Cafe in honor of our Easter “fortune” eggs.
In Dulles, the staff voted popular Chick-fil-A as their meal venue and enjoyed an Easter egg hunt with prizes.
Olde Towne Pet Resort recognizes associates on a quarterly and annual basis for outstanding service. Employees participate through a nomination process at each location.
In addition to recognition and honoring a co-worker, employees come together for a luncheon and fellowship with employees who they may not see on a regular basis due to shift work. Olde Towne Pet Resort is staffed 24/7 to provide services for our guests and their owners.
