Youth unemployment is a real issue in many countries around the globe. We look in our communities to discover and develop talent, to generate interest of young people to join the world of hospitality. Radisson Hotel Group often work with schools and non-profit organizations to offer trainee positions and job experience opportunities for young people, including at-risk-youth and other vulnerable members of society. By giving career opportunities to vulnerable young people, the company gains new, youthful, and dynamic colleagues.
Through the Youth employment program of the Sustainable Hospitality Alliance we give disadvantaged young people the chance to learn a range of skills across a variety of departments. Success rates are impressive: 85% of the program’s graduates get a job at Radisson Hotel Group or another company or they go on to continue their education.
Diversity and inclusion
One of our core culture beliefs is that ‘we are many minds with one mindset’. This belief is based on our respect for individual differences, life experiences, and diverse world views.
By working together, Radisson Hotel Group is dedicated to building a global team of employees that reflect the communities where we work and live, and the diversity of the customers we serve.
Our guests and our talents deserve a safe environment where they are valued for who they are. As our workforce is driven by people from different backgrounds, personalities, and points of view, we strive to create places where everyone can express their authentic selves, seize opportunities, make decisions, and resolve conflicts.
