Al Mana Restaurants & Food Co., the owner and operator of McDonald’s restaurants in the State of Qatar, recently hosted two staff events at the Hilton Hotel in Doha. The celebrations are held annually in appreciation of the hard work and commitment of the entire McDonald’s Qatar team. More than 700 employees, both crew and management, came together again this year for an evening of fun and games that lasted until late in the night.

Reflecting the spirit of teamwork and unity, the events were themed “Crewsome (Awesome Crew) Rewind”, while all attendees came dressed in the cool style of the 60’s, 70’s and the 90’s. Throughout both evenings, McDonald’s Qatar staff took part in a number of competitions and a raffle draw where they had a chance to win valuable prizes. As an integral part of the “Crewsome Rewind” events’ concept, McDonald’s Qatar managers took on the role of hosts and “chaperones” for the evening, making sure that the employees are well-served, fully pampered and that they are enjoying themselves at all times.

Kamal Saleh Al Mana, Managing Director of Al Mana Restaurants & Food Co., said: “At McDonald’s Qatar we truly believe that our employees are our most important asset and that their talent, ideas and skills are the key factors that drive our development. These events are an opportunity for all our staff to come together to genuinely sense and celebrate the advantages of being part of the large McDonald’s Qatar family. The “Crewsome Rewind” events are one of the ways we show our appreciation for the hard work of our employees and to recognize their notable achievements.“

The events were an opportunity to acknowledge the outstanding performance of teams and individuals, and their contribution to the success of McDonald’s Qatar in the past year. Categories included the Best Restaurant Manager of the Year, Outstanding Consumer Award and the winner of the McDonald’s Super Crew Competition.
