The numbers speak for themselves: 200 recruiters representing over 60 world-class companies, conducted more than 2700 individual interviews over the two days of the forum!


Illustrating the international dimension of the event, companies recruiting for positions around the world included, the Accor Group, Disneyland Paris, Emirates Airlines, Four Seasons, Hyatt, Mandarin Oriental, Marriott International, Relais & Châteaux, Swiss Airlines, Fairmont, Raffles & Swissôtel Hotels & Resorts and The Ritz Carlton group.

The IRF has become an important event for many of the companies present and as Michel Gehrig, Vice President Talent Development at Kempinski Hotels explained, “We take part in the International Recruitment Forum as it is a unique opportunity to exchange with talented young people from all over the world. Kempinski will continue to grow over the next few years, and is expected to have at least 95 hotels under management by the end 2015. This means our workforce must grow at the same pace as our portfolio; therefore it is crucial that we get the fundamental things right, and attract the managers of tomorrow to our company today.”

The next edition of the International Recruitment Forum will be held on the 10th and 11th of March 2014
