THINK PEOPLE

People are the driver of a successful hospitality business. The foremost way to be a responsible company is to provide meaningful employment. We believe in developing our team’s talents and increasing young people’s employability. We also promote human rights, business ethics and diversity in our hotels, our business network and our supply chain.

CAREER PATHS

Our focus is on generating shared value through job creation, people development and rewarding opportunities for a global and diverse workforce. The majority of Carlson Rezidor hotels are independently owned and operated with many of our franchise owners sharing a similar commitment to their employees. Our team members and franchisees are supported by on-the-job skills training and extensive development opportunities through our Learning Link online courses, and Carlson Rezidor Business School classes.

Nearly 25,000 team members are trained annually.

 

BUILDING FUTURES

Youth unemployment is a real issue in many countries around the world. We, and many of our franchise owners, look to the community to discover and develop talent and to generate interest in young people to join this exciting global industry. Carlson Rezidor and our franchisees often work with schools and non-profit organizations to offer trainee positions and job experience opportunities for young people, including youth-at-risk and other vulnerable members of society.

2,500 young people received training in Carlson Rezidor hotels last year.

DIVERSITY & INCLUSION

We celebrate the diversity of our people and respect that each and every one of us is unique, and we strive to create a work environment where the things that make us different are valued. We recognize and embrace the richness of diverse talent and focus on balanced leadership. We encourage our franchise owners to value these same principles.

The 90,000 associates working under Carlson Rezidor brands come from 160 different countries.

HUMAN RIGHTS

Carlson Rezidor endorses the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and is committed to promoting and enhancing human rights within our sphere of influence. In doing so, we put a specific focus on ending child sexual exploitation, all forms of human trafficking and forced or bonded labor.

SAFETY & SECURITY

The power of travel is borderless, but unfortunately, so are global risks. The safety and security of guests and employees is a core value deeply rooted in our culture and one that we expect each franchise owner to respect and emphasize in the operation of their hotels.

A risk management best practice library and self-assessment tool is provided to all Carlson Rezidor hotels.

 

BUSINESS ETHICS

All interactions within Carlson Rezidor—with our employees, partners, stakeholders and local communities—are based on the highest principles of business ethics contained in our Code of Conduct and Business Ethics.

Rezidor Hotel Group has been named to EthiSphere’s World's Most Ethical Companies list each year since 2010.
