Chalet Hotels Limited, owner, developer and asset manager of high-end hotels in key metro cities of India, has made it to the Great Place to Work Institute's list of India's 50 Great Mid-Sized Workplaces 2022, across industries, for the third time consecutively. It is the only hospitality company from the sector making it in the top 10. Despite unprecedented challenges for the industry, the company moved up from 16th place in 2020 and sixth place in 2021 to fourth place in 2022.
People are Chalet Hotels' top priority and with policies rated amongst the best in the world, employee happiness and well-being are essential for business success. In addition to its commitment to its people, the company cultivates an enabling culture at work.
Chalet Hotels has incorporated some forward-looking and people-friendly employee policies. For young professionals, Chalet Hotels Limited's LEAP (Leadership Execution Accelerated Programme) is a one-year intensive leadership programme designed to upgrade professional skills and ensure successful day-to-day performance. In addition to this, the company hosts a Rendezvous with the CEO, which serves as a direct channel for employees to present ideas and concerns or just have a conversation in a small group.
Employees can relaunch their careers after taking a work break due to maternity leave, health issues or caring for a family member through an initiative called Relaunch Your Career. Furthermore, the company ensures a non-discriminatory atmosphere at the workplace through a policy called The Pride Side, which ensures transparency from employment to appraisals of employees. The company also has a policy called Anchal for expecting mothers, which supports them during pregnancy, under which extensive facilities are provided such as cab services, reduced working hours, ‘My Saheli’ - an initiative that helps them stay connected with office while they are away from office, tie ups with day care centres, and other services while at work.
Sharing his thoughts on the recognition, Sanjay Sethi, MD & CEO, Chalet Hotels Limited, said, “Hospitality Industry thrives on their employees as they are the face of an organisation. Our goal is to foster an environment in which employees excel and set high-performance standards, so it is a great honour to be recognised with this award. We strive to create a 'place of choice and pride', a workplace benchmarked to global standards. It is a testament to the hard work, resilience, agility, and team spirit of our colleagues that is being recognised by GPTW.”
