RADISSON SAS Hotels and Resorts across the Middle East has taken a healthy step – by holding a monthly 'Non Smoking Day' across its network of 12 properties.
From Taba to Sharjah, smokers are being encouraged to kick the habit for one day a month – both staff and guests – in a bid to make Radisson SAS Hotels and Resorts a healthier place to stay, said Ghosoun Al-Qadi, regional HR and training manager, and regional responsible business co-ordinator.
“As many countries in Europe are banning smoking in working areas, including restaurants and pubs, we felt we could take a lead in the Middle East and put our responsible business beliefs into action,” she said.
The first non-smoking day – in March – was a great success, with the regional properties displaying posters encouraging people to kick the habit – if only for one day. Responsible business co-ordinators at each hotel expect more and more response from staff and guests alike, as the non-smoking days become a regular feature of the hotel calendar.
