“I believe that the key to my success is not only the support and opportunity I have been given but also my job satisfaction. The Grand is a company which focuses on people and their progress in order to build a supportive work environment. The approach of my mentors is quite simple but yet effective; “tell me and I will forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.” Kornelia Kuczer, Room Service Attendant to Receptionist to Reservations Manager
