When Sanjeev Karanwal, the Director of Engineering at W Goa, heard about a power supply failure in the neighboring areas of the hotel, he immediately informed the General Manager, TJ Joulak who didn’t think twice before both took action and put a team together to expedite the project in half a day. The underground cable which was feeding electrical supply to ten houses in the village got damaged due to the incessant rains and it was uncertain how long it would take to repair, ten days at minimum. The Goa state electricity personnel and the villagers approached and requested the hotel to support them, and provide electricity from the hotels panels, which W Goa was quick to accept, without hesitation. As a result of W Goa and Sanjeev’s quick thinking and action, the neighboring village has received continuous power supply and not been affected by the cable damage. “The families are grateful to the hotel”, Ms. Leama D’souza, a neighbor, said, “It was extremely tough for us to manage with the electricity cut, especially in this monsoon. We sincerely thank the team at W Goa for coming forward to help us, they had no liability but did not think twice about their costs or effort and immediately came to assistance.”
W Goa since pre-opening has been involved in regular activities that help the community, the neighborhood and has worked for the general benefit of society. More recently, the talents of the hotel came together for a clean-up drive at Vagator beach. They have also visited and donated new clothes to children at an orphanage in the area, and had a successful Zumba event in aid of breast cancer awareness last year, among the many other initiatives. The Director of Human Resources, Mario Rebello said, “Taking care of our community is as important for us as taking care of our guests and talents is. At W Goa, we are team of bold, and enthusiastic talents, who don’t shy away from our commitment and responsibility towards the society. The initiative of providing electricity to the ten families in our neighborhood is just one of many ways that we constantly try to give back to society as and when possible.”
