Radisson Hotel Group has announced the introduction of its new global Responsible Business training program, Living and Leading Responsible Business. Set to be rolled out worldwide over the next 16 months, the new program 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 best practices.
To step up the group’s efforts in this area 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 consistent knowledge levels and action on topics such as carbon footprint reduction, water savings, meaningful community engagement and tackling modern slavery.
Sven Wiltink, Director Responsible Business EMEA and Training Project Lead, 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 new 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.
