Grand Hotel Kempinski High Tatras is the best employer in the tourism and hotel industry in Slovakia
Bratislava/Strbske Pleso, 27 January 2017 - Grand Hotel Kempinski High Tatras won the first place in the survey Najzamestnávateľ 2016 in the category “Tourism, Gastronomy, Hotels”. The general public/people decided by voting on the portal Profesia.sk.
“We are extremely pleased and appreciate that we have become the most attractive place in the hotel industry in Slovakia where people would want to be employed,” commented Kathrin Noll, General Manager of Grand Hotel Kempinski High Tatras, about the results and prize. In the ranking compiled by the industry, Grand Hotel Kempinski High Tatras won the first place in the “Tourism, Gastronomy, Hotels” category. The second and third places were won by companies Tatry Mountain Resorts, Inc. and the Slovak Health Spa Piestany, Inc.
“We’re trying to lead trainees and employees by example. I believe that this is a key point to success, especially in smaller hotels,” says Kathrin Noll about the cooperation with employees, and she adds that “the results of our efforts are satisfied guests, who are our daily awards.”
Grand Hotel Kempinski High Tatras is among the hotels that manage the company Best Hotel Properties, Inc. According to HR Manager Dana Povýšilová, the hotel has a long-term cooperation with schools in Slovakia and encourages students in their study and practice. “Our goal is to help students, as well as our current employees, in development and career growth and educate our own talents through ‘talent management’,” says Dana Povýšilová.
In the fifth annual Najzamestnávateľ survey, a total of over 14,000 respondents voted, which was an increase compared with last year, when over 10,000 people voted. The difficult situation in the labour market was the cause of the survey organisers’ decision that this year the winners of each category become the absolute winners. A total of 133 companies have signed this survey, and by the rules, any company based in Slovakia could join. Based on the response to the questionnaire, the companies were given points/a score, and a jury decided on the selection of about ten companies for each category. The public then voted through a questionnaire. People provided reasons why they considered their chosen company “best” and they could also add their own comments.
