QHotels has been named one of the top six employers in the UK hospitality industry in the Best Places to Work in Hospitality Awards 2017.


The hotel group was named following feedback from anonymous staff questionnaires, and was particularly praised for its commitment to developing talent through its training programmes, such as Hospitality Management Foundation degree.


More than 77 per cent of staff were required to fill in the questionnaires, which were analysed to see how the employer had performed against national benchmarks.


Michael Purtill, managing director at QHotels, said: "This is a stunning result for QHotels. We put a huge amount of focus on team development and particularly on finding the right people with the right attitude, which we can foster, regardless of background or experience. 


"The return is an engaged and motivated team that know there are real opportunities for them to progress their careers with QHotels and be fully supported by the business. This inspires them to listen to customers and able to take decisions to help improve the experience of staying at QHotels and guests recognise and appreciate that. I’d like to thank the team for their fantastic effort and this recognition is richly deserved."
