Matanivusi only employs Fijians, and priority is given to prospective employees from local communities. Matanivusi supports employees’ professional growth, and provides opportunities for staff to train for other positions and work toward promotions. For example, Tony Karan started out as a barman and is now the resort manager. Emori and Lesi started in resort maintenance and have since been trained as boatmen and surf guides. Both received training to get their boat master certifications.
