Celebrating success, Millennium Corniche Hotel Abu Dhabi recently scooped the Best Newcomer International 2016 Award at a recent Investors In People (IIP) event in London.
IIP is a UK-based accreditation introduced in 1991 for business improvement through people management. It provides resources for businesses to innovate, improve and grow, with a focus on good people making great business. Millennium Corniche Hotel was accredited by IIP last year.
Enthusing on the news was the hotel’s general manger, Nemo Acimovic: “This is a true testament for hard work and dedication of the entire team and a great recognition and reward for a job well done. In addition, this is a fantastic exposure for our brand at international level and another accolade we can all be proud of, and it only confirms that our property is always exploring ways to build on its success, to grow and to develop its strengths and marks a significant step forward in the hotel’s commitment to creating and supporting people and to achieving a culture that values people and their contribution to the business.”
Acimovic added: “This iconic award- the distinctive laurel mark, drawing on Investors in People’s 25-year heritage, has become a symbol of industry excellence. Millennium Corniche Hotel has beaten tough competition to earn this place on the list and establish itself as a preferred employer in a highly competitive market. It is also working vis-à-vis with the government bodies in Abu Dhabi, where this achievement will continue to help us develop our management practices with the commitment from all our operations to reflect positively not only in our group, but on the society as a whole. It is adapted to today’s workforce requirements and enables us to focus on highlighting our people and strengthen the development of our hotel.”
Meanwhile, head, IIP, Paul Devoy remarked: “Achieving the IIP Standard is something that any organisation should be truly proud of. Working with IIP inspires and enables leaders, managers and employees at all levels to build their skills, improve their performance and achieve their potential and we would like to congratulate Millennium Corniche Hotel Abu Dhabi, on their achievement and winning this year’s award in Best Newcomer International category. Successful accreditation against the Investors in People Standard is the sign of a great employer, an outperforming place to work for and a clear commitment to sustainability and succession planning.”
