Rezidor launches ‘The Rezidor learning network’
Despite the economic downturn, Rezidor remains committed to training and developing its people. It continuously ensures that the training and development initiatives remain competitive, accessible and targeted to ever changing market and company needs. The company has now widely expanded its offer of eLearning and virtual learning tools to reach a larger audience in a quicker, more efficient and more cost-effective manner.
"48% of our workforce is under the age of 30 and is constantly on the lookout for advanced education and training," informs Beathe-Jeanette Lunde, Senior Vice President People Development & Radisson Blu Franchised Operations. "To ensure that our talents stay within the company and have access to further development opportunities from within, we continuously develop and re-invigorate our people development programmes. For years, through our very own Business School and Intranet, we have offered several eLearning courses but never to this extent," Lunde continues.
The Rezidor Learning Network complements the company's existing learning forums, i.e. Business School @ Rezidor which brings face-to-face learning from experienced instructors. A virtual learning environment offers an alternative method, promoting self-learning, that can be adjusted to the students' needs and time constraints. RLN is offered in cooperation with Carlson Hotels Worldwide, Rezidor's largest shareholder, and a global leader in the hotel, marketing, restaurant and travel industries.
Rezidor will offer the RLN network throughout its multi-brand portfolio of 375 hotels and over 35,000+ employees in 58 countries.
