What is a G.O, a G.E ?

G.Os are Club Med's "Gentle Organizers", their mission is to ensure the activity of the Resort while providing unforgettable moments for the clients during their stay.  Beyond their job, our G.Os share moments of conviviality and forge links with our G.Ms. In the evening, they sometimes swap their work clothes for a suit, and perform on stage for those who want to reveal their talents.   The G.Es, or "Gentle Employees", have a sense of service and detail, particularly in the hotel, restaurant and maintenance trades.

G.Os and G.Es are one and the same team working towards the same goal, that of satisfying our G.Ms!
