What we
stand for

  • We foster an environment where everyone is treated with respect and has equal access to career opportunities so that each individual can develop in their own way and make their unique contribution to our success.
  • We want our people to feel valued at work, and that means respecting, understanding, and inspiring each other. It also means fulfilling potential and encouraging career advancement. We try to help everyone reach their goals.
  • As a company and as a group of people, our culture is to look after each other. This includes practical considerations such as flagging hazards and accident prevention, but also identifying inconsiderate and harmful behaviours. It is our responsibility to make sure everyone across our organisation, at every level, feels safe in their workplace.

What we offer

Talent management

>

Talent management is embedded in our culture. We created our very own way of approaching, recognising and developing talent, to adapt to new challenges and support B&B HOTELS’ strategy and ambition. Human Resources Directors and Managers across our organization work together with a shared vision of talent management.

Our talent philosophy:

  • Having great talent is strategic for B&B HOTELS’ sustainable growth.
  • What is meant by talent @B&B HOTELS has been defined and is unique for our company.
  • It is our collective responsibility to ensure that talents have the right opportunities to develop themselves within the company.
  • All talents may not thrive for the same kind of career path.
  • To define the right path for someone, it is essential to assess 3 key ingredients every year: performance, potential, and readiness.
