Bali's Sheraton Laguna Nusa Dua prides itself on searching far and wide in order to secure the very best candidates to fill every staff vacancy. Recently, that search extended to Bali's Sekolah Luar Biasa, a special school established to help physically challenged young people discover life's true potential.
Four deaf-mute students from the school have been employed by the Sheraton Laguna Nusa Dua to assist during the current peak season period in the capacity as daily workers in the food and beverage department. Ni Made Sari is working in the kitchens and receiving departments; Dewa Ayu Alit Setyawati is a cutlery dishwasher; Dading Kalbuhadi keeps very busy as a steward; and Yudi Kurniawan is training in the hotel's famous pastry pantry.
As you might imagine, the four high school level students are more than delighted with the opportunity to work at one of Bali's leading 5-star properties and the warm and friendly acceptance extended to them by their co-workers. Their next goal: permanent employment status after successfully completing their three-month daily worker assignment.
"These young people have done very well and quickly overcome obstacles in understanding orders. They are shy but their confidence is growing through contact with guests in the hotel area," said Sheraton Laguna Human Resources Director, Erika Isnijati.
