CEO Light & Warmth Spotlight: Jessica Pruitt
Meet Jessica Pruitt, Coordinator for BPS Homewood/Home2
Meet Jessica Pruitt, Coordinator for BPS Homewood/Home2 and one of our 2016 CEO Light & Warmth Award Winners.
Based with the Corporate team in Memphis, Jessica embodies what it means to selflessly spread the light and warmth of hospitality. Aside from her day-to-day responsibilities, Jessica is the co-chair of the Community Committee and is the key to Team Member engagement in the Memphis office.
From coordinating volunteer participation and transportation, to purchasing supplies and taking care of additional details including public relations and media, Jessica is a logistical mastermind!
Her initiative over the years has helped Hilton reach many milestones in the Memphis area including: packaging over 60,000 meals for the Mid-South Food Bank, assisting in the revitalization of over 50,000 square feet of the city and organizing blood drives which have saved an estimated 1,000 lives. In addition, Jessica led donation efforts which resulted in the collection of 2,000 books, 1,500 art therapy kits, 500 suits for 'Dress for Success' and 800 pounds of clothing for local missions.
With her close work with the Team Member Resource Groups, Hilton has been able to convey their dedication to the Memphis community and demonstrate their commitment to shining the light and warmth of hospitality throughout the area.
Among other Team Members, Jessica is a constant source of positivity and goes the extra mile to reinforce teamwork and collaboration. She has thrown showers for Team Members new to the office, sent notes of encouragement to Team Members and recently begun "Gratitude Friday" sessions with her BPS Team Members in Memphis, to reinforce those things which they are most thankful.
Jessica, thank you for embodying the very best of what hospitality means, and for truly bringing our Purpose to life! Congratulations for being one of our 2016 CEO Light & Warmth Award recipients and for epitomizing our H-I-L-T-O-N values!
