I would recommend working with Springboard to any business associated with hospitality, leisure, tourism and travel as giving back and getting people interested in, and into the industry, are initiatives that no business can afford to overlook or ignore. In the good times and in the bad times, Springboard has been a constant force and true partner helping us in our recruitment needs and with our responsibilities in giving back and creating opportunities.

Working with Springboard is a great way for Arora Hotels to recruit and retain talented people in a competitive industry - a major business priority for us. Springboard helps to raise our profile as an employer with great career opportunities. It enables us to raise our standards through programmes like the INSPIRE work placement accreditation scheme. The wide variety of activities that employers can get involved with promotes the industry as a great place to work with fantastic career opportunities and helps to support the wider community.

Becoming a Springboard Business Partner has given Sodexo's chefs an extra opportunity to demonstrate their skills and communicate their passion to young people who, we hope, will be inspired to follow in their footsteps. As an Investor in People, helping individuals reach their potential is something that we take very seriously. Sodexo was delighted to be recognised as a leading responsible business in the Springboard Awards for Excellence 2010 receiving awards for Corporate Responsibility and Diversity in Employment.
