HR Person of the Year Kristina Vaneva, from Atlantis The Palm Dubai

Kristina Vaneva, manager, employee marketing at Atlantis The Palm Dubai details the impact of being named HR Person of the Year at last year's Hotelier Middle East Awards.

What’s your job role today?

I am still the manager of employee marketing (employee engagement), but now I have more authority and autonomy due to a change in reporting structures. I report directly to the senior vice president of HR.

Has winning a Hotelier Award impacted your career in any way and if so how?

Winning the HR Person of the Year has been a fantastic experience! Of course winning this award has put more positive pressure on me and my team. We are constantly innovating and thinking of news ways to increase employee engagement in the organisation. This means unique projects and more responsibility which ultimately leads to further learning.

Are you hoping to be nominated this year for an award?

It’s been a great experience, however, this year we will be nominating another outstanding colleague to represent HR in the Hotelier Middle East Awards.

Where do you see yourself in five years’ time?

Atlantis, The Palm is constantly innovating. I would definitely love to be part of any new and exciting projects!

What’s your dream job?

I would love to work with National Geographic or the Travel Channel. This would enable me to explore the world and film/direct/produce movies or short films, while meeting interesting individuals and learning about new cultures.

Nominate your colleagues for this year’s Hotelier Awards by August 31, 2014. Read our Essential Guide: Hotelier Awards 2014 Nominations and go to www.hoteliermiddleeast.com/awards for more information.
