Equality at Banyan Tree
Security Officer Ms Luh Putu Eka Suwandewi was born with cerebral palsy; and was also diagnosed with strabismus as a result of her condition. Banyan Tree Ungasan, Bali first hired her as a trainee and casual worker in Laundry Department in 2010, before taking her on contract to work as a Security Officer.
In 2018, Ms Suwandewi received a Long Service Award for her hard work and dedication for the past five years. She has never let her disabilities hinder her commitment to pushing the boundaries.
In Ms Suwandewi’s words: “I feel very grateful that I was given the opportunity to join Banyan Tree Ungansan, Bali. The structure of the hotel allows me to carry out my duties without much difficulty, and the fact that the hotel trusts me inspires me to do my best. Everyone I work with is always supportive, helpful and respectful.”
