Accor, the largest hotel operator in Australia, has once again been named as one of the best companies to work for in Australia, having been recognised as a 2024 5-Star Employer of Choice (500+ employees) by HRD Australia for the second consecutive year.

This coveted accolade was achieved through a rigorous two–part selection process, consisting of a detailed submission on Accor’s team offerings and practices, followed by an anonymous employee survey to gauge employee satisfaction across multiple metrics, such as benefits, compensation, culture, employee development, and commitment to diversity and inclusion. Those achieving a 75% or higher average satisfaction rating were designated as 5-Star Employers of Choice for 2024.

Accor Pacific Chief Operating Officer PM&E, Adrian Williams, said: “It’s a great honour to receive this recognition for our achievements in creating an extraordinary workplace. It reinforces that we have a committed and caring team, who are passionate about supporting and developing people, and creating career pathways.

It’s an exciting time to work in hospitality as the travel industry continues to evolve and expand. What I love most about our industry is that it gives you the chance to learn and grow, which opens doors to the world.

“We want our team members to fall in love with the industry and we have many initiatives in our business that create incredible opportunities for exciting careers in hospitality.

“Our teams bring diversity, experiences and stories to our culture, which makes Accor a community for all to excel. Our people are integral to our success and growth and I could not be prouder of them.”

Accor has implemented a number of initiatives to attract, retain and develop talent. Example programs include Accor’s revolutionary Work Your Way initiative, which offers increased flexibility and a range of personalised benefits, to create a fulfilling and inclusive team member experience.

Accor also has a nation-leading Indigenous Careers Program, which has placed more than 2,500 Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander team members into positions since its inception in 2015. Plus, with a growing desire among its Indigenous team members for leadership roles, Accor has facilitated numerous scholarships for tertiary education, leadership programs, and the appointment of Indigenous hotel general managers.

The Group’s sustainability framework always places people and nature as its core. Accor is steadfast about setting team members on the path to sustainable transformation and recently launched its ‘School For Change’ training program, which aims to improve individuals’ understanding of the causes of climate change and its impact on biodiversity and communities. 

Accor operates more than 400 hotels, resorts and apartments across the Pacific region, employing more than 21,500 people.
