In its 50th Anniversary Celebration, AccorHotels opens Doors for ‘Heroes’ Among us
In its anniversary celebration on 19 November 2017, AccorHotels welcomes “heroes” among them, such as social workers, volunteers, fire fighters, nurses and teachers, who work hard daily to serve communities around the hotels. Over 2,000 AccorHotels around the world, including 500 hotels on the Asia Pacific and more than 110 hotels in Indonesia are actively involved in this initiative.
This global activity is an opportunity for groups and more than 250,000 employees as an expression of gratitude to those who have commited their time and efforts in serving the communities around them through sharing in a spirit of togetherness with activities such as; breakfast, barbecue, concerts, and even invite them to stay as guests at the hotel.
In Indonesia, one example is Novotel Bali Ngurah Rai Airport, which supplied daily necessities to the Karangasem area for the evacuees around the Mount Agung volcano and invited volunteers who handled the evacuation process to enjoy lunch at the hotel. Novotel Bogor and ibis Styles Bogor Raya invited children from orphanages and special needs schools nearby the hotel to stay and enjoy breakfast as well as get involved in fun activities at the hotel. Ibis Styles Jakarta Sunter invited veterans and their families to enjoy dinner and provided rooms for them to stay in. Ibis Budget Surabaya Airport held a brunch for 50 airport security personnel who are regarded as heroes who carried out their important duties around the hotel.
