As part of the efforts of Saudi Arabia to broaden its economy and increase the proportion of local workforce in various sectors of the economy, French hospitality group Accor has signed an agreement with Ministry of Tourism of the country to train and recruit local talent.

In a press statement, Accor says that through the ‘Tamayyaz by Accor’ programme, the collaboration seeks to offer fresh graduates and others a path for career advancement, expedite nationalisation by identifying essential roles in each department, cultivate internal talent, implement onboarding programs, and design career growth plans.

The statement adds that upon completing the six-month programme, 256 trainees will be employed in their preferred departments within the hotels. It says that ‘Tamayyaz by Accor’ has three distinct tracks, namely hospitality specialist, hospitality operations and hospitality leadership.

The statement adds that the hospitality specialist track exposes local talent to the foundations of non-operating hotel departments such as talent and culture, marketing, finance, business development, and guest experiences.

The hospitality operations track targets departments such as food and beverage, front office, housekeeping, and engineering and the hospitality leadership track meanwhile focuses on fostering leadership skills by applying the Accor Leadership Framework. It includes leadership shadowing, global leadership programmes, and training initiatives funded by the Ministry of Tourism. Additionally, a supervisory development track will offer candidates a range of training programmes designed to enhance potential future growth.
