Melia Hotels International has once again achieved first place in the ranking of hospitality and tourism companies in the Merco Talent survey carried out every year by the MERCO Monitor using inputs from 8 different sources with more than 30,000 respondents, including university and business school students, human resources experts, employees and the general public, among others.
Melia Hotels International is a growing multinational company with operations in more than 40 countries and has made talent management one of its strategic priorities within a global context of increasing competition for talent. The company works with over 300 universities and tourism and business schools and focuses heavily on training and internal promotion, which currently covers 75% of all vacancies.
This effort has led to the company being named the most attractive hotel company to work for by Spanish university students in the Universum survey in 2109, and among the 10 most attractive companies in Spain. Internationally, the company has also been acknowledged as a leading employer brand in its industry in countries such as Mexico, where it was named one of the 50 best companies to work for in 2018, and China, where it ranked second in the Top Employer Awards for Tourism and Hospitality in China in 2016.
As Gabriel Escarrer, Executive Vice President and CEO of the Group points out 'it is an honour for Melia to receive recognition from workers, students and human resources experts. Our people have always been our greatest asset, even more so in a company whose success is based on service excellence. The ranking reflects the fact that we have adapted well to the current employment environment in which talented young people are nowadays not only looking for a good career, but also a positive professional experience, which includes aspects such as culture, values and growth.'?
