Richard Speroni has been named as the Winchester Royal Hotel Employee of the month for May.

Working as a Night Porter at the hotel, Richard has received the award from General Manager, Louis Rigney, for his flexibility and continued high standards of work shown during the month.

As a department that’s not often at the forefront for receiving praise, Louis was delighted to announce Richard as the standout winner. He said: ”A Night Porter’s role is often overlooked when considering recognition. It’s not as visible as other day roles within the hotel, but it’s by no means less important and I can’t stress that enough.

“Every person in a team plays their part and Richard is a valuable cog in the wheel. His work ethic is always great, but during May he notably stepped up covered departmental absences at short notice while still maintaining his usual high standards.

“His efforts don’t go unnoticed by myself or fellow colleagues and I’d like to thank Richard for his hard work during the month.”
