Since 2004, companies with great enterprise training and management practices have been recognized at the annual China Enterprise Training & Development Annual Conference, one of China’s most influential industry events. At the event, STARWOOD CAREERS, Starwood Asia Pacific’s integrated Talent Management & Development people practice, was held up as a best practice that catered to the development of associates at various levels; one that had clearly-defined stages of development well supported by direct managers and mentors; and which produced good results for learners via its rigorous and multifaceted training methods.

We also had the honor of sharing our practical experience of implementing Starwood Careers in Starwood Asia Pacific.

“As one of the world's largest hotel and leisure companies, Starwood continues to do well in a fast changing environment by adopting a unique approach to attracting and retaining talent, thereby achieving exponential growth. Starwood realizes that besides providing staff with practical and personalized benefits, it is crucial to provide unlimited opportunities to meet the expectations of continuous development, career advancement and the desire for self-realization. This Starwood achieved spectacularly via its unique Starwood Careers program, honored in this award,” said the judges.

To emerge winner amongst over 1000 outstanding organizations including many multinational companies such as Standard Chartered, 3M, China Merchant Banking Corporation and Schneider is an incredible triumph. The winning of this Award was a team result.
