At IHG, we're committed to helping our team members grow by developing their skills in their current roles and preparing them for future opportunities – we call this our ‘Room to Belong’ promise.
We recognise that our industry is changing, and that the new talent pool may be lacking prior hospitality experience. Moreover, offering flexible schedules and holistic wellbeing support is the new norm for employer. Our guest demands are also changing with the times, but what’s not changes is their high expectations from IHG Hotels & Resorts and the guest experience we deliver in our properties. It is then crucial that we adapt our current ways of working and delivering learning to attract and keep talented individuals who will find that we have plenty of room to grow while we also grow our business and deliver on our purpose of True Hospitality for Good.
At IHG we know learning is a way of life. We believe in continuous learning, which goes beyond formal training to include coaching, mentoring, shadowing, and on-the-job learning. We value a culture where making mistakes is seen as a chance to learn.
IHG Hotels & Resorts is a global hospitality company, with a purpose to provide True Hospitality for Good.
