An additional three hotel chains have become involved in the second South Kerry Development Partnership organised Hotel Recruitment Event taking place on Thursday, February 6.

Last year’s event resulted in almost 40 percent of the potential employees who attended the event secure long term employment as a result.

The Europe Group, the Randles Hotel Group and the O’Donoghue Ring Hotels have now joined with The Great Southern Killarney, The Cahernane, The Gleneagle Group, Muckross Park Hotel, the Aghadoe Heights Hotel, The Killarney Park and The Lake Hotel for the event which seeks to match employees with vacancies in the sector through a more informal process.

SKDP Enterprise Officer Joanne Griffin, who organises the event, said she was delighted to have the additional employers involved and it helps to make the event even more attractive to potential employees.

“The event gives potential employees the chance to meet with a large number of employers and enables both the employees and potential employers to get to know each other in advance of entering into a formal work situation,” Joanne said.

“It also offers people who may not have worked in the hotel sector before the chance to see what opportunities exist for them.”

She also pointed out that people do not have to have previous hotel experience to get involved with the event - they just need to have an interest in taking up a role in the sector.

While the event is free to attend, people must register in advance in order to ensure everyone who wants to attend can be catered for. Joanne added that the due to demand, the closing date has been extended. To register simply contact Joanne Griffin by e-mail at jgriffin@skdp.net or 066 9761615 before Tuesday, February 4.

Lee Strand was recognised once again for their exceptional performance and commitment to sustainability with Gold Membership at the Origin Green 2022 awards.

Origin Green is Ireland’s food and drink sustainability programme led by Bord Bia – The Irish Food Board. Gold Membership is awarded to companies who demonstrate an exceptional annual performance on their sustainability targets.

“We are delighted Lee Strand is recognised once again with the prestigious Origin Green Gold Membership for our commitment to sustainability,” Gearoid Linnane, CEO said.

“In Lee Strand environmental management and sustainability are key elements of our business model, from launching 100% renewable cartons, to reducing water usage and energy efficiency. This is a great achievement by our sustainability team who are continually striving for higher levels of environmental excellence. We would also like to thank Veronica Kennelly from the Munster Technological University who assisted Lee Strand in the development of our Origin Green plan.”

Origin Green continues to evolve to ensure Bord Bia is helping Irish food and drink companies to remain up to date with the evolving needs of trade customers and their consumers, globally. With the introduction of the Origin Green credits system in early 2022, it is now easier to identify members who are performing at a high level or excelling in their sustainability performance.

To retain ongoing membership of Origin Green, companies must subsequently submit an annual review to demonstrate clear progress against the established targets and initiatives set. This annual review is subject to an independent third-party review by their verification authority Mabbett. This ensures minimum programme requirements are consistently met and maintained. Companies receive credits for their performance in areas such as raw material sourcing; water and energy efficiency; waste reduction; packaging; and social sustainability. Origin Green has established five different membership tiers based on company size and turnover, so that a real diversity of industry is reflected in the overall Gold Membership.
