Celebrating 10 Years of Responsible Business Action
Recently, the Radisson Montevideo joined in the spirit of this program and contacted the Cristobal Colón School, located in the Nuevo Paris neighborhood in Montevideo. The hotel staff donated clothing and teddy bears to the school children and established a Toy Campaign with the school's director. For a month, the staff collected a toy for each child in the school, resulting in over 400 gifts (balls, dolls, toy cars and even some bikes). In addition, the Radisson pastry staff collaborated in making two cakes that were decorated to enjoy with the children. Last week, the hotel delivered all of the gifts, cakes and sweets that had been collected. Volunteers went from class to class carrying a toy for each child. The party ended with an exciting football game among the children and the Radisson hotel's staff.
Hotels play an important role in the travel and tourism industry, which contributes to the economic development of local communities around the world. Hotels have a responsibility to the people and the physical environment of those communities—a responsibility to see that the community is not hurt by the hotel's presence, but rather enhanced by it, both economically and socially.
This goal is achieved by going about business in a responsible manner. Radisson Hotels & Resorts, Responsible Business is centered around three important areas:
1 - Taking responsibility for diversity, inclusion; and the health, safety and security of our employees and guest
2 - Showing leadership in social and ethical responsibility issues within the company as well as in the community
3 - Reducing our negative impact on the environment
Radisson has a rich history of Responsible Business practices, offering a strong foundation as we continue to build on that history. Ultimately, we strive to serve the common good through our commitment to social responsibility.
