Marja works mainly during the day; takes care of the breakfast buffet for the hotel guests, cleans on Mondays and also works at various parties. Marja is a great example of a loyal employee for over 15 years now. She is a mother of three sons and also a proud grandmother. She is married to Henk who since recently has some more free time, so more time to do fun things together. Marja you have earned a dinner for two, please let us know when we can reserve a table for you! Congratulations!!
After all the festive days in December, we have another employee of the month. We had very many guests in December at the Borgh. So everyone was asked to work extra, especially our kitchen team. Especially Nick van Leent has made many extra hours in the rinse kitchen . And that is why Nick is our employee of the month! Nick is almost 17 years old and has been working at the Borgh for over a year now. He works efficient and fast and that is very much appreciated. The dishes pile up fast and it is not always the best job to do. But Nick knows how to handle it! Nick is studying at the Markland College and is very fond of football. In the evenings and weekends he works at the Borgh. Nick congratulations on your election as an employee of the month! You are welcome to come and have a dinner for two, or come and have lunch with your family.
For more than a year now Tim is our colleague. Mostly as a front desk employee and that is why he is already a familiar face for many guests. At the end of 2016 Tim was eagerly looking for an internship in the final year of his education. We did not have a vacancy at the time, but because Tim continued to contact us, we gave him that internship position anyway. After his internship, he also worked at the Borgh during the summer months. After that we did not have a vacancy at the reception desk. But when one of our reception colleagues suddenly decided to go and work abroad, we contacted Tim. Tim is a nice colleague and a good host. Tim is a football fan and supporter of Feyenoord. This festive December month Tim is in the spotlight despite the fact that he is not a fan of Christmas music. Tim congratulations and if you can find time in these busy December weeks, you are welcome to enjoy a delicious dinner (for 2) in our restaurant.
For many years now Roos works at the Borgh and she is highly appreciated by colleagues and guests. Roos is a super friendly, hospitable, professional colleague and very willing to work extra. Roos studies Cultural Anthropology. This school year is her last year and because she has less hours at school, she has more time to work at the Borgh. And we are very happy with that. That is why she is employee of the month October 2018. She also loves the burgundian lifestyle, so dinner for two is well spent on her. Congratulations Roos!
This month our employee of the month is Kimberley Visser. She has been working at the Borgh for over a year now and certainly a valued colleague. She started as a breakfast employee, but now also works in the restaurant, the sports hall and at various parties. Besides working full-time, she also likes to go out with friends and eating out is also a big hobby. Kimberley is a loyal colleague, who certainly wants to fill in an extra shift and then it is useful if you can work on multiple fronts. Because at the Borgh there is always something to do (fortunately). Congratulations and we look forward to your visit to our restaurant for a well earned dinner for two!
Also in this warm and sunny holiday month we have an employee of the month at the Borgh, Stephan Cornelisse. This month he works at the Borgh for 10 years and therefore a familiar face in our team. He started with an employment of 12 hours, then 20 hours, eventually 32 hours and already full-time for years now. Stephan is someone we can build on and is very flexible when necessary. Enthusiast and connoisseur of specialty beers and organizer of our annually returning Bock beer Festival, this year on 14 October! He lives together with his girlfriend Maud, who is one of our regular cooks. And Stephan is a very big fan of AJAX, our soccer team from Amsterdam.Stephan you’ve also earned a free dinner in our restaurant, please let us know when to reserve a table for two!

Started as a breakfast employee and now active in the restaurant during the day and evening and also at various parties. She is a spontaneous, cheerful colleague who also doesn’t mind to work an extra shift sometimes. Even when it is a last minute call. In addition, every Thursday she works at our café Proost. And even there she is now a familiar face to many of our regular guests. Christine is also mother of Esmee and Wouter and therefore has a full agenda; but planning is her middle name ;-) !

For a while now Sjoerd works in the rinse kitchen at the Borgh. For now only in the afternoon after school because Sjoerd is only 15 years old. We are very proud that Sjoerd’s first job is with us. He works neatly and well and is always polite and cheerful and certainly willing to work an extra shift. We hope you will stay with us for a long time!

Mike has been working at the Borgh for many years now. Started as an intern and since last year a full-time colleague. After several attempts to continue studying, he found out that he would rather work full-time. He is not only a receptionist, but also a waiter in our restaurant and during various parties. Mike is also responsible for the rental of the sports accommodation. A diversity of activities and that is exactly what Mike aspires. After a bad event last year and an injury to his arm, Mike seems to be doing well again. He can play tennis and workout again (his great passion) and in his work he improves every day. That is a positive thing and we are very happy with that! That is why Mike is employee of the month of April 2018. Mike, you have earned a dinner for two!
This month our sous-chef Jeroen Leijten is employee of the month. For over 7 years now he is in permanent employment of the Borgh. Jeroen is a very nice and very social colleague who understands his job well. Recently he turned 30 and moved into his first own house in Zevenbergen. Unfortunately Jeroen couldn’t join us with carnival because of the flu. Jeroen is a big fan of our Big Green Egg in the kitchen. All our meat dishes are prepared on it. In addition, Jeroen is also the contact person for our catering services that we offer in association with Partyservice Nelis in and around Zevenbergen. In the photo Jeroen is busy catering his friends and family during a private party, hence that glass of beer! He is a very good cook and we are very happy to have him as a colleague. You’ve deserved a dinner for two Jeroen, well done!
This month we don’t have just one employee of the month, but there are more than 40 employees of the month. The entire Borgh team did a great job! January 2018 was a very good month! Many New Year's receptions, many hotel guests, big parties in our restaurant, many sports competitions and even a training internship of the national fencing association, not to mention the 5th edition of “het Bont Gemauw” !! And with so many guests... you have to stand strong and act like a team and they did just that! In recent years several well-respected colleagues left our team but that created opportunities for the rest of the colleagues. Eventually we have no vacancies left and we now again have a team that we are so very proud of.
As a token of appreciation we will go on a pub crawl during carnival with the whole team in our own town Zevenbergen (called Zeuvebultelaand during carnival). We can party just as hard as we can work!
Also in this new year we have another employee of the month; Mike Tiebout! For over two years he works at the Borgh and also very often at Proost.
Graduated as a teacher in gymnastics but he is also enthusiastic and hospitable in the catering industry. Mike is a very valued colleague, always friendly, collegial and if possible always willing to work some extra services.
Unfortunately, in 2 months he emigrates to France, together with his girlfriend Laura and their children. They are going to work at the campsite where they have met eachother. A whole new exciting challenge. We will miss him and Laura very much but we wish them all the best and good luck in France! Mike you were a great colleague and we will enjoy working with you these last few months. Enjoy your dinner with Laura!
Ofcourse in this festive month we have another employee of the month. And that is Lars van der Horst. Lars has been working at the Borgh for almost 4 years now. And he is only 19 years old! Started in the dishes and now he works almost 2 years as a waiter. Lars is a very correct and tidy guy, who is always willing to work an extra shift, ofcourse if his schoolwork allows it. In the weekend he works 1 or 2 evenings in the restaurant and sometimes also an extra shift during the week. Because there are some colleagues who are quitting their jobs at our café Proost, Lars will also be a waiter there, starting in 2018. Another new challenge! Lars, thank you very much for all your good work, you have earned a dinner for 2 at the Borgh!
