St. Regis Maldives participates in Journey Week global career development programme
The St. Regis Maldives Vommuli Resort has participated in Journey Week
The initiative, which is to take place in all Marriott International properties across Asia Pacific from Monday to Friday, is aimed to attract new talent while inspiring current associates to aim high.
The St. Regis Maldives Vommuli Resort is hosting a range of events for its current team as well as new talent on the islands, where senior leadership associates will share their career journeys to inspire others to reach their own career destinations.
“Journey Week will encourage and inspire our associates and new talent in the Maldives of the world’s largest hospitality group to create their own future and shape the company, and also show potential employees why Marriott International is an employer of choice,” Alexander Blair, General Manager at The St. Regis Maldives Vommuli Resort, was quoted in a statement, as saying.
“Journey Week is a platform that reinforces our company’s global employer brand ‘To the Journey’. The week-long series of events will bring to life our value proposition: that Marriott International offers unmatched career opportunities coupled with a culture that empowers associates.”
There is a focus on women leadership roles, where inspiring female staff members at the private island resort are showcasing and emphasising their progression and journey throughout each stage of their career. The team visited Hulhudheli School on Monday to talk about opportunities in different departments in the hospitality industry, supported by a video on women leadership and followed by a panel discussion.
As part of Journey Week, talks on career guidance will be held at the resort on Tuesday in addition to an open house at Maldives National University on Thursday. Candidates are encouraged to interact with the volunteers and share their applications at the Marriott stall, after attending the presentations and panel discussions hosted by the resort’s team.
“Against the backdrop of increasing competition for talent and increasing growth of Marriott International in the region, it’s vital we focus on talent retention and attraction. Journey Week empowers associates with opportunities to have multi-faceted, meaningful careers,” Alexander said.
The St. Regis Maldives Vommuli Resort is nestled on a private island in the secluded Dhaalu atoll, amidst thriving marine life. Just 40 minutes from the main Velana International Airport by seaplane, guests are transported to a newfound paradise.
Designed with great respect to its natural surroundings, the resort is surrounded by a large house reef and the island is defined by several distinct ecological areas: lagoon, beach coastal and jungle. At The St. Regis Maldives Vommuli Resort, guests have the luxury of staying in one of the 77 island and overwater villas, shrouded in lush tropical flora, each with a private pool.
There are six distinct dining venues, including an Asian specialty restaurant, a modern Italian restaurant that features a grand staircase, an underground wine cellar restaurant, a shack style restaurant, a signature overwater bar that rolls out stunning views of dramatic sunset, and a pop-up restaurant in the middle of the resort.
Additionally, guests can also enjoy the Iridium Spa, which presents six overwater treatment rooms, including two that are dedicated to healing Ayurvedic treatments. Spa guests can also enjoy a Blue Hole pool, which contains heated seawater with different water jets – a system with proven benefits to the body.
