Starwood, which manages over 1,300 properties worldwide, will be offering 3,500 more jobs in the Greater China area this year as it plans to build and buy even more hotels. Thanks to Starwood’s huge networks and fast expansion, staff can be transferred to different departments or hotels within the chain, which can help them to realize their full potential and creates opportunities for promotion.
Although there are more and more high-end international hotels opening in Xiamen, Starwood is confident it can attract highly-talented people through its career opportunities, reputation and its employee value proposition.
A global associate program designed to support and encourage volunteerism in local communities, Starwood Cares for the Community aims to harness Starwood’s global reach and drive meaningful impact in our communities.
