Hershey Entertainment & Resorts (HE&R) recently named its 2023 Partners of the Year at Town Hall meetings across several properties. 

Throughout the 2023 calendar year, team members were nominated by their peers or supervisors for “Team Member of the Month” recognition for embodying HE&R's Core Values: Devoted to the Legacy, Selfless Spirit of Service, Team-Focused and Respectful of Others. Then, at the beginning of the following year, leaders at each property choose the team member who earns the distinction of being named “Partner of the Year.” The winning team members receive a monetary gift and more! 

Congratulations to all nominees from The Hotel Hershey, Hershey Lodge, Hersheypark Entertainment Complex and Hershey Country Club, and please join us in celebrating the 2023 Partners of the Year!
