Novotel wins award for career progression excellence

AccorHotels, the world’s leading hotel operator and market leader in Europe has won the ‘Best Career Progression Award’ at the annual Springboard Awards for Excellence 2015 for its Novotel brand

The award acknowledges the organisation that demonstrates the most outstanding opportunities for career progression. Judges look for evidence of an internal pipeline of progression, succession planning, a focus on job enrichment, and a general culture of career progression within the organisation.

The Springboard Awards for Excellence celebrate and reward inspiring people, organisations and initiatives that work hard to elevate the profile of the hotel industry as an employer and attract and retain talent.

The Novotel’s ‘Move Up’ human resources policy is just one of AccorHotels’ initiatives that supports employees in their career progression. Designed especially to ensure employees ‘Grow Faster with Novotel’, the policy encompasses six programmes which accompany professional development and enable employees to gain more responsibilities within a short period of time.

Thomas Dubaere, Managing Director, AccorHotels UK & Ireland said: “We take career progression very seriously at all our AccorHotels’ brands, including Novotel, so we are delighted to receive this award. We take pride in supporting our employees with invaluable skills to help them build a career in our exciting and evolving industry.”
