also been nominated for the Emerging Talent Initiative Award, which
recognises the group's apprenticeship programme, Get Into Q.
Get Into Q was launched earlier this year as part of the group's
commitment to creating 100 new apprenticeships in 2016, and a total
of 300 apprenticeships by 2017. QHotels currently has 145 on-going
apprenticeships at its 26 four-star hotels across the UK.
Lisa Redding, Group Resourcing Manager at QHotels, said: "Our
aim is to continuously improve training and development
opportunities for QHotels employees, so our Get Into Q
apprenticeship programme is designed to introduce young people to
sustainable employment in hospitality and promote the industry as a
great place to work.
"Our service is inspired by our customers, so it's vital that we
employ and retain talented people with natural intuition for
understanding guests' needs, and the HR team play a huge role in
this. It's great to see the team be recognised for their
achievements in being nominated for the two awards."
The winners will be announced at the awards ceremony on 12th
October, at Park Plaza Westminster, London.
