Thomas POLI

The Restaurant Services Manager at the Bora Bora Pearl Beach Resort & SpaThomas Poli manages 25 to 35 staff members depending on the season and the hotel’s room occupancy rate.

“I try to be accessible and above all, be transparent and able to speak with my teams. Defining a clear vision and goals helps motivate most people.

Valuing each and every person I manage by giving him or her a front seat when dealing with clients is beneficial for everyone: my team member feels like he or she is appreciated, takes more initiatives and our guests have a less “robotic” impression. Their gestures are more certain, their exchanges more natural and everyone has a better time.

My work philosophy is steered by the values to which I’m attached and I expect the same thing from my team members:

  • human warmth
  • kindness
  • smiling
  • availability
  • patience
  • honesty
  • respect.”
