On Monday 3rd April, Valor Hospitality took home three awards at the IHG Impact Awards. In its third year running, the IHG Impact Awards recognises the achievements of its hotel teams, individual colleagues, and general managers within its portfolio.
The initiative was created to enable people across the business to nominate and recognise hotel leaders, peers, and colleagues who they feel made the biggest difference and impact throughout the year.
Valor’s own HR team won the HR Impact Award for their commitment to people, with a particular focus on our 2022 Healthy Habits campaign. The programme saw 175 UK team members commit to a new habit or activity, something that would ultimately make a lasting, positive impact on their health. Due to the campaign’s success, Healthy Habits 2023 is in full swing after launching again in February this year!
The HR team were also commended for their transparency of values after 93.2% of the team cited that they know and live Valor’s values, in our most recent employee engagement survey.
Holiday Inn Peterborough won the prestigious Loyalty Recognition Top Performer Impact award, which is presented to the hotel with the overall highest performance in all categories throughout the year.
It wasn’t the only award for Holiday Inn Peterborough: Charlie Twarog, Front of House Manager, also took home the One Rewards Impact award, which is given to an individual who brings colleagues together to drive a true culture of loyalty across the hotel, and consistently delivers a memorable experience to all IHG One Rewards members.
Having worked at the hotel since 2006, Charlie has showcased her commitment to both the Valor and IHG brand, working her way through numerous departments, before being promoted to her current front-of-house manager role earlier this year. Charlie’s hard work and drive has enabled her to gain a varied knowledge of each department, which she happily shares with colleagues to ensure IHG One Reward guests experience a culture of loyalty during every aspect of their stay.
Loved and respected by her colleagues, Charlie is regarded as a great champion of loyalty and thoroughly deserved the recognition this award represents.
A huge congratulations to all winners!
