IHG Ranked Among Top 50 Companies to Work for in India

New Delhi, 26 July, 2012 – InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) has been ranked 26th amongst “India’s Best Companies to Work For in 2012” in a study conducted by the Great Place to Work Institute, India. This marks IHG’s debut in the country’s most definitive work place survey.

The company has not only been named in the list of top 50 coveted employers, but is also ranked in the top 25 companies with over 1,000 employees in India.

“It’s an honour to be named as one of the top 50 Best Companies to work for in India”, said Chris Moloney, VP Operations, South West Asia. “We’re fundamentally a people business and it’s a competitive employment market out there, so it’s vital we set ourselves apart. It’s fantastic to be recognised for the culture we’re building here.”  

Simon Manohar, HR Director, South West Asia, added, ““Our people are our brand ambassadors. They’re the reason guests love our brands and stay with us time and time again. So hiring passionate people, training them to deliver a great guest experience, engaging them in the business, and recognising everyone for their hard work and dedication is central to our employment promise.   We’re delighted that this has been acknowledged by Great Place to Work.”

IHG has had a presence in India for nearly 50 years and now employs over 3,000 people across the country, including 600 people in their South West Asia office in Gurgaon, Delhi. Over the next three years IHG plans to recruit a further 10,000 people as it opens the hotels in its development pipeline.

Great Place to Work® for is India’s largest annual study on workplace culture aimed at identifying, recognising, learning from, and spreading best practices of organisations that achieve business objectives by being great workplaces.
