Wyboston Lakes Resort has joined many leading hotel groups, further education colleges and industry associations in signing the Hoteliers’ Charter.
The Bedfordshire resort that includes a four-star hotel and two purpose-built venues for conferences and training events, as well as a spa, restaurants and golf course, is among the first organisations in the region to commit its support to this industry initiative, launched earlier this year.
The Hoteliers’ Charter aims to introduce parents, careers influencers and young people to the attractions of careers in the hospitality industry and explain the benefits of attending a catering or hospitality college, or working with a Charter Hotelier, where they can benefit from good training, mentoring and apprenticeships.
In signing the Charter, Wyboston Lakes Resort has committed to abide by ten pledges covering all aspects of working practice and environment, from respecting work/life balance and fair pay to mental health, wellness and diversity.
Linden Beattie, General Manager of the Waterfront Hotel at Wyboston Lakes Resort explained:
“As the hospitality, meetings, events, training and leisure industries work to recover from the terrible impact that the pandemic and now Brexit has had on the pool of talent in our sectors, we need to attract the best young people to the wide range of exciting career opportunities that we offer. We are very happy to commit our support to this vital initiative.”
With its venues re-opening in April and May, Wyboston Lakes Resort recently announced a recruitment drive to take on staff across most areas.
