Glasgow Kelvin College welcomed Ms Aradhana Lal, Vice President - Brand, Communications & Sustainability Initiatives at Lemon Tree Hotels Ltd., who was invited to speak at this year’s Scottish Tourism Conference on the Lemon Tree Hotels diversity experience.
Lemon Tree is India’s third largest hotel chain operating 80 hotels in 48 destinations with 8,000 rooms and over 8,000 employees. The hotel group is a global leader in the training and employment of people with additional support needs.
A long-time international partner of the College, Aradhana Lal contributed her knowledge and experience to a pilot training programme, funded by UKIERI, to be run by Glasgow Kelvin College which will use the Lemon Tree Hotels inclusion initiative as a model of best practice. The initiative provides paid training and employment opportunities in the hospitality sector for people with additional support needs.
At the conference, she outlined the benefits of this model to the employer organisation, the trainees, other employees and to society as a whole.
