Here, you're encouraged to bring your unique personality, history, and culture to the table, creating a vibrant and supportive work environment where everyone can thrive. 

We believe in diversity as a key driver for collective performance and we actively contribute to building a more inclusive and diverse workplace. As an example, one of the ways we empower women within the company is through our gender diversity network - RiiSE. With over 26,000 members across the group, representing all countries, cultures, ages, and genders, this network aims to eliminate all forms of discrimination and harassment while providing mentorship opportunities.

Grow & Create Your Path 

It is a common misconception that the hospitality industry only offers temporary jobs. We often get the question “Can you make a career in hospitality?” While you can join us for a short time, we also offer long-term career paths.

We believe hospitality is a school of life and we empower our Heartists® to take charge of their career trajectory. We love revealing and empowering you, to let you invent your future.

With access to leading training and development plans, tailored courses, and continuous learning opportunities, you'll have the resources and support to evolve and excel at every stage of your career.

Work with Purpose 

Our purpose is to pioneer the art of responsible hospitality. You as a Heartist® will be challenging norms and pioneering a new and innovative approach to hospitality. A career at Accor means working with purpose.

We enable our Heartists® to create unforgettable experiences for our guests, making hospitality truly unique.

Whether it's crafting personalized experiences, fostering connections, or contributing to positive and sustainable impacts, your work here goes beyond service—it's about creating lasting memories and meaningful connections. 

One of the ways we support our Heartists® in creating a positive impact on our communities is through Heartists® for Good. This is an opportunity to do voluntary work during working hours, one day a year. In addition, with our Solidarity Accor initiatives, we aim to help and empower populations living under precarious conditions to work themselves out of poverty and social exclusion. We welcome our Heartists® to submit a project which supports this cause and have the opportunity to see their initiative funded by Accor through the endowment fund. 

Enjoy and Feel Valued

We understand the importance of feeling valued and appreciated for your contributions. 

This is why we prioritize recognition and reward for our dedicated Heartists®. Just as you care for our guests every day, we're committed to caring for you, ensuring that your efforts are recognized, appreciated, and rewarded every step of the way. 

Every year, we shine a spotlight on our dedicated Heartists® who have made outstanding contributions at the Bernaches Awards. The Bernaches are Accor's signature awards program that recognizes Heartists® from around the world and across functions, who have delivered extraordinary projects. The awards are deeply rooted in Accor’s culture and serve as a testimony to the group's firm commitment to highlight and reward Heartists®. 

Yes, recognition is important but we also want to take care of you. That is why our Heartists® have exclusive access to our ALL Heartists® program so they can fully enjoy the benefits of our hospitality universe. 

Hospitality is a Work of Heart

We proudly embrace the hospitality industry and the challenges that come with it. These challenges are what makes working at Accor so stimulating for our Heartists®.
