ACCOR ONE OF THE BEST PLACES TO WORK IN THE UK
Accor, the world’s leading hotel operator, has been recognised as one of the UK’s Best Places to Work for the fourth year running by The Great Place to Work Institute, a workplace assessment consultancy.
Accor ranked 17th in this year’s ‘large’ category, which featured companies with more than 500 employees. The award recognises Accor’s longstanding commitment to providing exceptional career development opportunities, excellent training and a comprehensive benefits package for all its employees.
As part of the assessment for the Best Workplaces award, a series of evaluations were carried out across Accor, including an in-depth survey completed by employees and a management questionnaire, which aimed to thoroughly analyse the workplace environment.
The evaluations took a series of factors into consideration such as the hiring and welcome process, how the company inspired its employees, how senior management communicated with employees, the internal recognition programmes in place and the organisation’s approach to work life balance.
Philip Addison, Vice President Human Resources, Accor UK & Ireland said: “We are proud to be recognised as one of the best places to work in the UK for a fourth consecutive year.
“This accolade reflects the hard work and commitment of all our talented employees. As a Hospitality organisation, we find that engaged employees result in greater customer loyalty and we strongly believe in creating a company culture which fosters engagement, teamwork, innovation and success. I would like to thank all of our employees for making Accor such a great place to work.”
