Ultimately, while Commonwealth may build, develop, and manage hotels, the basis of our business has always been people. We have a passion for providing superior service for our guests, and this starts with fostering a professional environment for our associates.
To start, Commonwealth offers one of the most comprehensive benefits programs in the industry — benefits like affordable medical insurance, abundant advancement opportunities, and comprehensive retirement planning. We maintain Associate of the Month and Associate of the Year programs, which award recipients with trips for two to anywhere in the continental United States. Social activities like picnics and service award luncheons are regular features on our calendar. Our culture of growth also allows us to offer extremely competitive compensation structures.
Perhaps most importantly, Commonwealth is committed to open communication. Bi-annual evaluations, associate opinion surveys, and an open-door policy are always in place. Here, taking care of our associates means more than providing a paycheck. It means creating and maintaining a positive and professional environment.
