Atlantis, The Palm’s Kristina Vaneva on keeping a city-sized workforce engagedEngageMe
It takes a lot of workers to keep a resort the size of Atlantis, The Palm running smoothly. This award-winning resort has 1 539 rooms, a water park, several celebrity restaurants and bars, an aquarium with over 65 000 marine species, a Dolphin Bay and Sea-lion Point, a kids’ club, and incredible conference facilities.
It is, in effect, a small city, with thousands of people trained in a wide variety of skills required to keep it running smoothly.
Ensuring that they are all as engaged as possible, and that there is a good work-life balance –– is Associate Director of Employee Marketing, Kristina Vaneva.
Holding an MBA from the European University in Montreux, Switzerland, and currently reading for a Master’s Degree in Applied Positive Psychology, Vaneva has been at the resort for almost a decade, prior to which she worked as a business and investigative journalist, project manager, and in corporate sales.
