Job Skills Training Campaign At Novotel Siam Square

November 9, 2013 Destination Thailand No Comments Email Email

From the short-listed hearing impaired candidates, Novotel Bangkok on Siam Square has selected the first group to participate in “Realizing the Potential”, an equal opportunity job skills training campaign for the physically challenged.

Each will undergo a professional on-the-job training program in October, to learn new skills and build the confidence needed to succeed in the workplace.

The goal of this program is the recruitment of participants, who upon completion of the program, demonstrate the aptitude, enthusiasm and commitment to kick start their careers.

David Baldwin, General Manager of Novotel Bangkok on Siam Square reflects, “I believe that work builds self-esteem, regardless of background and physical ability. In the case of our candidates in particular, work can bring challenge and developmental assistance, provide important social interaction. We are all glad to share our knowledge and experience so that they will be skillful and confident in the hotel industry and open–up opportunity for your future career.”

An orientation program will provide an overall perception of the hospitality job, introduce the responsibility of each department and detailed job responsibilities.

Throughout the training program a member of the hotel staff will be assigned as a hotel buddy to offer their guidance, coaching, share their work experience and make them comfortable in their new work environment, much like being a part of the family.

A professional sign language interpreter will be on hand throughout this process, while a member of the hotel staff will be assigned as a “buddy” to offer their guidance, coaching, and make them comfortable in their new work environment, much like being a part of the family.

“Of course, operational challenges are expected during this initial training period, but with an open mind we will find a way to give the participants of this program a chance to succeed. This year will serve as a pilot program, and we aim to see it become an annual training program” David added.

The five hearing impaired candidates recently received certificates after the hotel’s 14 days “Realizing the Potential”, an equal opportunity on-the-job training program. Two of them were selected by the hotel’s senior management to gain full-time positions in the hotel; both will now commence their new hospitality career in the House Keeping and Food & Beverage department. Meanwhile, the other three candidates have accepted full-time employment offers in sister Accor hotels.
