Swiss-Belhotel International has launched a new online training programme to help up-skill the company’s global workforce.
The SBI Academy features a wide range of courses suited to different career levels and departments including front office, food and beverage, finance, housekeeping and revenue management.
“Education has the power to change lives; it helps people break down boundaries and achieve their full potential. At Swiss-Belhotel International, there are no glass ceilings. We have always encouraged internal recruitment and career progression. With the launch of SBI Academy, we want to create new opportunities for our team members to shine,” said Gavin Faull, chairman and president, Swiss-Belhotel International.
“With the hospitality industry now more competitive than ever, we can differentiate ourselves by attracting and retaining the best people. SBI Academy will provide every team member with a clear career development path and opportunities to grow within our organisation. In turn, this will raise guest satisfaction levels and help us meet the expectations of our partners through professionalism and improved performance.”
The Academy officially launched in August 2018, with 300 hotel members signing up for the programme.
The courses can be taken at the user’s speed, so staff can organise training appropriately around busy work schedules.
