Challenge

Radisson Hotel Group upskills and engages team members at all levels via the Group’s Radisson Academy training program. Radisson Hotel Group has a very advanced and sophisticated learning culture that involves team members in all roles across the large international organization.


The Group was looking for new, fun, and engaging content to provide consistent fundamental skills training to all team members, to ensure they deliver memorable moments every day. Team members needed training content that was well produced, with accurate information, and which would blend well with the Group’s existing online and offline training program that their entire team could access easily, regardless of location or nationality.


Radisson Hotel Group properties were looking for hospitality and operational training content that enabled global team members to be trained consistently and facilitate the continuous professional development of its team members. They were looking for a solution that was of high production quality with industry experts which would complement their existing, internal Radisson Academy learning and development offering.

In summary, Radisson Hotel Group was looking for training content that was:

  • Fun and engaging
  • Available in multi-languages
  • Consistent
  • Cost-effective
  • Online and accessible
  • Contained a range of categories to upskill and cross-skill
  • Complement the existing online Radisson Academy training and face-to-face training

Solution

Radisson Hotel Group has partnered with Typsy to support the online learning objectives for its team members since 2019. After a successful pilot and feedback from a selection of hotels, Typsy was then introduced and began rolling out the Typsy learning platform across further Radisson hotels globally to train its teams.


Radisson Hotel Group enlisted Typsy due to its breadth of professional, highly specialized hospitality content, and bite-size, online learning approach. The results spoke for themselves and the teams at Radisson Hotel Group adopted and engaged with Typsy with enthusiasm and ease.

"Throughout the pandemic, the employment landscape became more flexible and team members now need to be more multi-skilled. Typsy supported our hotel teams in acquiring new skills and training on cross-departmental topics. This is a great engagement driver, as it helps team members to develop their skills, both personal and professional."

Federico J. González, CEO of Radisson Hotel Group

Radisson Hotel Group now uses Typsy across most of its hotel portfolio and supports the local hotels from a corporate level by covering the cost of Typsy on behalf of all its hotels in 2021. Going forward, Typsy will become more integrated with the existing Learning Management System, Radisson Academy Online to support day-to-day learning that is immersive.
