We are excited to have been shortlisted for three major awards at the HR in Hospitality awards.

The Association provides a forum for Human Resources professionals & other interested parties within the hospitality industry to come together network and share best practice.

This association facilitates members’ professional development through the provision of a programme of speakers & discussions and assists members newly appointed to the HR function.

Firstly, our L&D Team are up for the Excellence in Learning and Development Award. The award was focussed on building capability within the organisation and wanted to know in detail about a learning and development initiative within the last 12 to 24 months and to demonstrate how this had been embedded within the business.

The team will face stiff competition from other shortlisted companies including the Mandarin Oriental, The Dorchester Collection and The Grand Hotel Brighton.

Also shortlisted for Outstanding Leader of the Year is Monika Skrynska, our amazing Guest Services manager at Regent Street Management Direct, where she oversees a portfolio of a dozen high profile buildings. This is a truly special award to be nominated for; the shortlisted manager must embody excellent people management skills and be supported by their manager. Equally they need to celebrate their team’s successes widely and be a manager their people trust and will go that extra mile for. They can demonstrate their effectiveness through tangible results such as staff surveys, retention or other business measures.

Monika is shortlisted alongside senior managers from Park Plaza Hotels, Red Carnation Hotels, The Dorchester Hotel, and Park Plaza Hotels.

Finally, we have been recognised in the Excellence in Diversity & Inclusion category for the way we engage all our teams including our brilliant LGBT+ initiatives, focus on accessibility to enable a diverse workforce and demonstrating the education we have provided to our clients in this area. To win this award the judges are looking for evidence that an organisation is committed to a diverse and inclusive workforce and has taken measures to put some great processes in place to encourage this.

Huge congratulations to everyone and good luck at the ceremony to be hosted at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel later in September.
