Additional Culture Details
As we looked into why our colleagues chose to join and stay with our company, we found that common across all of our properties and offices globally our colleagues placed great value on relationships, continuous learning and living their best lives. In order to fulfill these needs at Swissôtel Chicago, we follow our company Employee Value Proposition for retention: Connect. Grow. Live.

1.    Connect. Our Colleagues value relationships – those they have with their guests, managers, peers and with their communities. We work to facilitate these connections in many ways, for example, our internal social media channel Departmental Meetings, All-Colleague Meetings, Colleague Bulletin Boards and through our community involvement with S.O.S. Children’s Villages Chicago.

2.    Grow. Our colleagues want to Grow from each experience. Swissôtel Chicago is committed to ensuring all of our colleagues reach their full potential and we have many initiatives in place to facilitate this, including our SUMMIT Leadership Development Program, our internal transfer program - Pathfinder, and our ongoing performance reviews and on-boarding programs.

3.    Live. Finally, our colleagues tell us that they seek a higher quality of life. This of course means different things for different people, but we offer many programs and have many initiatives in place to help our colleagues achieve this. Our Destinations program allows for our colleagues to stay at our hotels around the world at significantly discounted rates. ONE deals provides the opportunity to benefit from the various partnerships we have with our many vendors. We also measure the satisfaction and engagement of our colleagues annually and have built this into our business model. Lastly, our Vitality Vision’s core mission is to inspire Colleagues to embrace wellness into their personal and professional lives. By encouraging and celebrating our teams to participate in our various wellness activities, our colleagues are telling us they feel valued and cared for.
