STAFF are being put first at a Stratford hotel – and that’s official.
The Eden Hotel Collection, which runs The Arden Hotel on Waterside, was named winner in the ‘Excellence in Wellbeing’ and ‘Human Resources Team of the Year’ categories at the HR in Hospitality Awards for Excellence in London.
The awards, which are in their 27th year, shine a light on HR teams or individuals within the hospitality sector who have developed great people practices.
The award follows a string of wellbeing initiatives launched at The Arden in the past year such as its Employee Wellbeing Strategy, its new ‘money, mind, body and heart’ ethos, two cost-of-living pay rises, and enhanced ‘Eden Extras’ staff benefits.
The Eden Hotel Collection spokesperson Lisa Redding said: “I feel incredibly proud of what we have achieved over this past year, so to receive the award for Excellence in Wellbeing is testament to the hard work of everyone in our brilliant team.
“We are a small collection of hotels with a big heart, and genuinely care about our people.
“We’re proud of the work undertaken so far, while being aware that there’s always more than can be done.”
