IHG connects US hotel colleagues impacted by Covid-19 with job opportunities at leading companies

News release placeholder

IHG will expand resource into additional markets in the coming weeks

 

IHG® has today announced the launch of the IHG® Hotel Colleague Job Center to support US-based hotel colleagues impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic. 

 

The global Covid-19 outbreak has created unprecedented circumstances for the hospitality industry. Travel around the world has paused for most people, which has led to a number of IHG’s hotels closing temporarily or significantly reducing operations, impacting the employment of hotel colleagues.

 

To support them, the IHG® Hotel Colleague Job Center website – available at IHG.com/WeSupportYou – will provide resources, advice and guidance during this difficult time. It includes job opportunities with leading companies across the US that are looking to hire highly-skilled hospitality professionals who have worked in IHG branded hotels. Companies include Amazon, Walmart, CVS, Albertsons, Dominos, Pizza Hut, Lowe’s and The Home Depot. CVS, Albertsons and The Home Depot may also offer expedited applications for IHG hotel colleagues.

 

Hotel colleagues are encouraged to visit IHG.com/WeSupportYou, as well as to check IHG’s career page regularly at careers.ihg.com/. We look forward to having colleagues back with us soon, as we welcome guests through our doors once again.
