An inclusive workplace
With Thon Hotels leading the way, the Olav Thon Group entered into a key partnership at the beginning of 2013 with the Norwegian Labour and Welfare Administration (NAV) in Alna and Bjerke, where several of our hotels offer work experience to people who are finding it tough to obtain employment. During 2013 and 2014, 20 people were offered work experience positions.
The aim of the partnership is to help provide access to ordinary working life for people with an immigrant background who are keen to work. The partnership is a win-win situation for all parties – the candidates receive workplace training and a network, while the hotels gain contact with talented people who may quickly move into employment.
