April 27, 2015 // Franchising.com // InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG®), one of the world’s leading hotel companies with operations in nearly 100 countries worldwide, has today announced the relaunch of its external facing Employer Brand. The new brand identity, ‘All of you at IHG’, has evolved from in-depth market research which revealed the importance of developing a user-friendly, engaging and interactive digital identity.
A core part of IHG’s strategy is to attract, retain and develop the very best talent. We also know from our 2015 Trends Report that in order to deliver true hospitality, we need to continually build Trust Capital in IHG and our brands. One of the ways in which we do this is by constantly evolving the way we communicate the value of working for IHG and of building a successful career in the hospitality industry. It also supports a core business need – with 4,800 hotels worldwide and over 1,200 hotels in our development pipeline, IHG has a strong global presence with ambitious plans for the future.
The new smart and digitally interactive website (careers.ihg.com) has been designed specifically to make it easier for people looking for a career in hospitality to find a role within IHG. The site is fully optimised for mobile use so that it can be used on the go; contains distinct search functionality to apply for roles by brand and across different regions and features videos and stories from our people, across all of our brands and regions, to showcase the culture and value of Life at IHG.
Tracy Robbins, EVP of Global Human Resources: “Our people bring our brands to life and are passionate about delivering a superior experience for our guests around the world each and every day. We are committed to our people, ensuring that we create an engaging and motivating workplace for them. The new external Employer Brand has been developed to bring this commitment to life and showcase the exciting opportunities within IHG.”
At IHG we ask our people to live our Winning Ways: Do the right thing; Show we care; Aim higher; Celebrate difference and Work better together. For more information visit: http://www.ihgplc.com/index.asp?pageid=350.
