Radisson Hotel Group has launched a new hiring campaign to attract talent to join the group’s Moment Makers team, highlighting the wider career development opportunities across the group as it looks to add more than 1,500 team members in EMEA and APAC.
Radisson Hotel Group, one of the largest hotel groups in the world, is looking to add more than 1,500 positions across its EMEA and APAC teams with a focus on Front of House and F&B roles in key destinations, as it expands its restaurant offering and as the world of travel continues to recover from the Covid-19 pandemic. With more than 1,700 hotels in operation and development, Radisson Hotel Group outlines its projections that include the opening of 15,000 rooms and achieving the signing of 330 hotels total in EMEA and APAC in 2022.
The group has so far received more than 100,000 applications this year, while also celebrating the third anniversary of Radisson Academy, the group’s learning and development umbrella program offering more than 2,500 online, virtual and live learning seminars.
New team members will benefit from learning opportunities and experiences in a fun, dynamic, and culturally diverse work environment, unique global travel opportunities with exclusive rates for permanent and temporary employees, their friends and their families while travelling and staying in Radisson Hotel Group properties, complimentary meals while on duty, free use of the leisure, pool, and gym facilities during off-peak times and where applicable, as well as personalised development plans supported by the group’s Learning and Development program, Radisson Academy, which helps aspiring talent with a passion for hospitality kickstart their career, develop their skills, and achieve their dreams.
Established in 2019, Radisson Academy provides learning and development opportunities through three main formats, Online, Live, and On the Job, designed to equip team members with key skills to grow professionally, to boost their potential through customised training programs focused on enabling individualised development from day one, and to create a strong performance culture, all of which play a major role in facilitating career development at all levels. The group partnered with Typsy, the number one provider of expert-led hospitality training videos to expand its skills-building offering.
In 2020, as the world shifted to virtual during the pandemic, Radisson Hotel Group expanded its learning offering by launching Radisson Academy Virtual. Radisson Academy Virtual offers team members not only the flexibility of virtually facilitated expert sessions but also the opportunity to network and share best practices with colleagues from hotels around the world and build internal learning communities. Since 2020, the group offers one new virtual training each month based on teams’ needs, as guided by feedback in the pulse surveys, and now includes more than 65 training sessions. Radisson Academy’s course offering has grown tenfold over the past three years and is now offered in up to 14 different languages to train and develop the next generation of international hoteliers.
“2022 has been a real turning point for the recovery of the travel industry. During the Covid-19 pandemic, many highly talented individuals, unfortunately, left the hospitality industry due to the lockdowns and restrictions, but we are now seeing a strong resurgence, as people look to make up for lost time and broaden their horizons by exploring new cultures and new destinations. Travel and hospitality have always been characterised by strong business resilience, and now is an exciting time for entrepreneurial talent to join the hospitality industry and Radisson Hotel Group, as we continue growing our global portfolio,” says Iñigo Capell, Global Chief People & Resources Officer.
