PPHE group

Designworks have partnered with WDAD to create a recruitment portal for PPHE Hotel Group. PPHE is one of the world’s largest hotel groups which operate Park Plaza® branded hotels and resorts in Europe.

PPHE employees are ‘creators’ – they bring unique experiences to life; making guests feel energised, valued, respected and, more often than not, surprised and delighted. WDAD’s rationale therefore was a clear one:

“Good is not good enough. We want to be great. If you share this ambition, you’ll fit in beautifully here. We’ll give you all the training, support and opportunities you need to become exceptional at what you do. But it goes further than this. We’ll also give you the space for you to be you. To bring your personality into the job. To inspire our guests with your individuality. We’re not here to create average. We’re here to create amazing.”

The website features the group’s five distinct business areas art’otel, Park Plaza, Holmes Hotel London, their destination Restaurant & Bars and also Regional and Corporate Roles.

The site provides a clear candidate journey and is supported by strong employer branding, key Employee Value Proposition statements and social media. Video and employee stories are used to promote the company’s culture and values. The search and apply links to the Applicant Tracking System and is prominent throughout the site.

Recruitment is across Europe, so the site utilises the Google Translate plugin. A social media wall enhances the visual experience and provides an interesting mix of European cities and PPHE’s hotel brands.
