La Recre Opening Ceremony at Mercure Serpong Alam Sutera

Every job certainly requires energy and thoughts to be done well. From the job itself, it certainly needs to give out good results or in some case the job does not even meet the expectations at all. This can be caused by several factors such as fatigue or even stress. Releasing tiredness and stress is needed by every person so that they can have a peaceful mind and recover their energy.

Mercure Serpong Alam Sutera also thinks that every employees need to be happy and feel happy to do their daily duties, who we often call as  “Heartist”. Heartistis a master of the art of hospitality who serves others from the heart, with curiosity and inventiveness. Because of that, Mercure Serpong Alam Sutera made a special facility for the Heartists, named La Recre. La Recre is a lounge or a refreshing place for the Heartist which has many fun stuff to offer such as chess, karaoke, playstation 4, bonzini, table tennis, TV, and many more.

In the opening of La Recre, Mercure Serpong Alam Sutera hosted the launch of La Recre on October 10th, 2017. Various activities were held on the event, starting with a speech from Mr. Cyril Mas as the General Manager of Mercure Serpong Alam Sutera, then continued with a prayer and “tumpengan“. The next activity was a traditional dance performance by one of the hotel’s employee, followed by a ribbon cutting ceremony, hitting the gong as the symbol of opening the facility and ended with a tour to see the facilities in La Recre.

Attended by hotel employees and media partners, the event was held as a form of gratitude and appreciation for the loyalty and performance of the employees of Mercure Serpong Alam Sutera. Hopefully with La Recre, Mercure Serpong Alam Sutera team can destress, be comfortable and feel refreshed in order to be more productive and could work earnestly and to serve the guests with heart.
