The subject of IHG Hotels & Resorts unveiled by Eric Viale, Managing Director Southern Europe:

Journey to Tomorrow - Shape the future of a responsible travel

Guided by our respectful and responsible culture, we unveiled a 10-year action plan in 2021, to ensure the beauty of travel, right now and long into the future.

We call this Journey to Tomorrow.

Our commitments are ambitious but targeted, reflecting our purpose of True Hospitality for Good, they ensure commitment to make measurable, positive, changes.

Whether it’s how we, as an organisation, stand up for diversity, equity, inclusion and human rights, contribute to social and economic change, or make more responsible choices around water, waste and energy – those actions matter to our guests more than ever before.

Our goal is to help shape the future of responsible travel together with those who stay, work and partner with us.

Among those objectives we are committed to :
Reducing our energy use and carbon emissions in line with climate change
Pioneering the transformation to a minimal waste hospitality industry
Conserving water and help secure water access in those areas at greatest risk.

Are you ready for the challenge?

As we know, in recent years, the recruitment challenge facing hospitality has been unprecedented.

For this task, you will share ideas on overcoming these challenges, while furthering our Journey to Tomorrow agenda.
Using and leveraging the framework of Journey to tomorrow,  we want you to create a plan that can be used by IHG to attract new talent in our hotel teams.

To do this, you will need to build a recruitment plan and campaign, to increase awareness and candidate engagement.

You will highlight key messages to use that attract the right talent, identify the best channels to share these opportunities and suggest ideas for the ways in which we can secure the right candidates to raise the culture of sustainability within our hotels.

Remember, working in hotel industry is not only a place to work !

This is about development, growth and long-term career opportunities.
