Description

Local recruitment, at th heart of the green mobility

Véronique Bregeon, the owner of the Lecoq-Gadby hotel, has opted for recruiting staff for the hotel under criterias including the distance between candidate addresses and that of the hotel.

This choice comes from working towards the reduction of CO2 emissions that contribute to global warming: Almost all employees can get to work on foot or by bicycle.

Additionally, local recruitment maximises employee attachment to the local heritage.[/box]

There are multiple advantages:

  • They can better inform visitors on available activities in the area and as such improve satisfaction.
  • Their suggestions and contributions towards improvements for the business integrate local and economic aspects and favours local development initiatives.
  • Their involvement in the success of the business is more important as it creates a valuable territorial attachment.
