Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts ranked Best luxury Hotel Employer in the YHS Rankings
This year, YHS Rankings adopted a new methodological approach to ensure the reliability and future use of this report for brand awareness assessment, as well as evaluating the importance of the different criteria for a career choice. In order to choose the brands to be featured in this study, the authors have collected and analyzed STR data by classifying and segmenting hotel brands according to their Average Daily Rate (ADR). An additional filter for all three segments – Luxury & Upper Upscale, Upscale & Upper Midscale and Midscale & Budget – has also been added to increase the accuracy of the results.
YHS would like to congratulate Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts for their 1st rank in the YHS Rankings 2016 in the Luxury & Upper Upscale segment. Rachel Begbie, Regional Director of Human Resources EMEA, claimed the award on behalf of her company. The Ritz-Carlton secured the second place, followed by W Hotels. For Upscale & Upper Midscale brands, Disneyland Hotel took the upper hand while Ibis Hotels ranked first for Midscale & Budget properties.
The report also mentions fascinating insights on career path analysis, student future aspirations, as well as respondents' career preferences. One of the interesting discoveries found in the analysis of the survey is that salary, career path & evolution and work-life balance are among the top few factors in choosing a future career.
We would also like to thank our YHS Rankings Partners Expedia, supporting the survey for the third consecutive year, MyDear Agency, mentoring the authors, and HOSCO, for their constant support throughout the process of putting together the YHS Rankings 2016.
