Radisson Hotel Group launches business training programme
The training will cover topics such as carbon footprint reduction and community engagement
Radisson Hotel Group has announced the introduction of its global Responsible Business training programme, Living and Leading Responsible Business.
Set to be rolled out worldwide over the next 16 months, the programme will cement Radisson Hotel Group’s position as a Responsible Business leader and will give team members the tools they need to drive standards and practices.
As part of its five-year strategic plan, a global and cross-departmental team has revamped the existing Responsible Business training program, which was first launched in 2001. It is the first time that the training program has had global alignment across the group’s 1,100+ hotels in operation, delivering knowledge levels and action on topics such as carbon footprint reduction, water savings, community engagement and tackling modern slavery.
Radisson Hotel Group’s director responsible business EMEA and training project lead, Sven Wiltink said: “Our responsibility for people, community and planet is borderless, so global alignment on our Responsible Business program is a key driver for Radisson Hotel Group. The new Responsible Business training program aims to engage and align all our team members – helping them to have a stronger impact on our group targets, as well as global efforts to meet the United Nations sustainable development goals.”
The Living & Leading Responsible Business training program consists of two pillars. The Living Responsible Business is a classroom training that covers topics such as ethics, diversity, inclusion, community support, eco-footprint reduction, and sorting waste – as well as more sensitive topics like tackling sex trafficking and forced labor, available in 21 languages.
The Leading Responsible Business is an e-learning tool with a target-driven and interactive approach that covers topics such as eco-footprint reduction, youth employability, responsible recruitment and sourcing, promoting human rights, and Radisson Hotel Group’s partnership with SOS Children’s Villages – as well as the involvement of external stakeholders such as guests, suppliers and owners.
The Responsible Business training program is launched and gradually being rolled across all hotels and brands of Radisson Hotel Group. By end of 2020, Radisson Hotel Group aims to have trained all hotels.
