Are you brave, bold and creative? Then don’t be a dreamer, be a doer and meet the challenges enhanced by the hospitality industry. Accor, Disneyland Paris, Hilton, IHG and Radisson Hotel Group are counting on you to shape the future of hospitality. Discover their challenges and be part of the next generation of hospitality leaders.
In a context where the tourism sector has been strongly impacted by the COVID-19 crisis and hence, by a historic shortage of staff, Hospitality ON is launching a new event in June 2022. Designed for young international talents, this competition aims to support the attractiveness of the hospitality sector by promoting employer brands.
The hospitality industry is full of jobs with ambivalent human dimensions. To emphasize this singularity, it is a question of working hand in hand - both, established professionals and young talents - to highlight the accessibility and diversity of its jobs, while promoting an innovative and rewarding industry.
These challenges aim to stimulate new generations to dream about a brighter and better tomorrow.
Accor: The hospitality of tomorrow will be sustainable or won’t be
Every year, there were more than 200M single-use plastic products used in our hotels. As of today, we have already put in place several alternatives: the welcoming plastic water bottle has been changed into a filtered water in a glass recipient as well as several single-use plastic amenities into dispensers in the bathroom.
Today, we're asking you - talent of tomorrow - how we can engage and empower our guests into this sustainable change, to embark them, to convince them, and ensure they’ll not only understand these changes, but also choose Accor specifically because we’ll be a pioneer of the hotel industry of tomorrow.
Disneyland Paris: Make a difference for our future talents in hospitality!
Disneyland Paris has always striven to attract and retain young talents from both, France and Europe. We understand that the hospitality industry is often unjustly perceived as being incompatible with a good work-life balance. Working conditions specific to the industry, such as unsociable work hours, may refrain talents from joining an industry that is full of rewarding opportunities.
What solutions could you imagine to keep on providing a high level of service to our guests while creating attractive work conditions?
Hilton: Design a fresh recruitment programme
Hilton is expanding rapidly, opening a hotel a day around the world, and growing our presence in new and established markets. From Paris, to London, Dubai to Shanghai, we’re always on the lookout for amazing new Team Members to bring our signature hospitality to life.
In order to continue to provide the best experience for our guests, we are focused on attracting and retaining the best talent as well as guaranteeing fulfilling careers for our Team Members – whether that is as a front desk agent, engineer or mixologist to name just a few roles. We are also concentrated on our commitment to hire a diverse workforce that reflects the diversity of our guests – and we’re excited about the progress we have already made.
As we grow our business our challenge to you is to design a fresh recruitment programme, which uses different channels, and techniques to recruit new Team Members to our hotels in Europe. The programme should include strategies to reach new and diverse audiences, and showcase the breadth of roles available at our hotels. Consider also what new resources we could offer Team Members to support the recruitment efforts and any tools you would need to make the programme a success.
IHG: 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.
Radisson Hotel Group: Attract talents of tomorrow
Have you ever thought how the hospitality industry recruits and trains these talented individuals? And how can we elevate the candidate experience?
Your challenge today is to propose suggestions on how Radisson Hotel Group could engage with new candidates looking to start their career in hospitality.
Start from the beginning and think about how we could reach talented individuals before they have even considered hospitality as a career. Which channels can we leverage? How we can educate them on the benefits of being part of this dynamic industry?
What can we do to enhance the application process, interview & hiring phase, and the overall onboarding experience?
