Grand Hyatt Dubai engages in global recruitment drive
The Grand Hyatt Dubai has embarked on a worldwide search to recruit most of its 1,100 employees for the opening of a 674 room City Conference Resort. Senior members of Grand Hyatt Dubai’s management have been personally involved in every single appointment, between them interviewing thousands of candidates from Eastern Europe, Asia, the Sub-Continent and the Pan-Arab region on meticulously planned overseas recruitment drives.
The recruitment procedure commenced in August 2002 when Yves Givel, the hotel’s Human Resources Director, armed with a shortlist of candidates produced by agencies in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, St. Petersburg and Bucharest, traveled for three weeks to Eastern Europe to interview hundreds of potential employees.
For the next round of recruitment in Asia, Yves took along Grand Hyatt Dubai’s Executive Chef, Max Burkhalter. Max had previously worked for 10 years at Hyatt hotels in the region and was very keen to recruit Asian chefs for the hotel’s Peppercrab and Indochine restaurants.
Grand Hyatt Dubai is scheduled to open in early 2003, presenting the region with a City Conference Resort. Placed to become the Middle East’s largest conference hotel solution yielding 4,340 square meters of Conference and Convention space, Grand Hyatt Dubai marks yet another milestone in the growth and development of the United Arab Emirates (UAE). — (menareport.com)
