News for the Hospitality Executive
21st April 2011 - The value created during the annual Young Hoteliers Summit at the Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne has shown strong potential for growth.

As a result the yearly Summit is now been embedded in the newly founded association branded YHS ( ). What began as an annual event, bringing together leading hospitality management schools from around the globe, the Young Hoteliers Summit has now grown to become part of a bigger cause, addressing the gap between Educational Institutions, the Hospitality Industry and it’s Young Talents by:
  • Ranking leading hotel companies as potential future employers
  • Hosting and running the annual Young Hoteliers Summit
  • Nurturing a global community of young talents in hospitality
These are some principle features of the YHS brand, which follows the distinct YHS approach tackling pertinent employment related questions.
  • “Do companies manage to attract young talents that fit their needs?”
  • “How are different hotel management schools perceived within the hospitality industry?”
  • “Are young talents in the hospitality industry rewarded with positions that match their level of education and training?”
Please visit the new website to learn more about YHS, it’s distinct approach and the first YHS Hotel Company Employer Ranking, which will be issued shortly!
Hotel Company Employer Ranking
With the support of Qualtrics, a leading survey research suite, YHS will soon issue the first ranking of top hotel companies based on feedback received from over 1500 students worldwide and how they perceive different hotel companies as potential future employers.
Stay tuned to find out if your company is perceived as one of the TOP TEN.
