Ac­corHo­tels sus­tains 6,350 lo­cal jobs in the UAE and KSA

Travel Daily ME - - News -

Ac­corHo­tels has pub­lished find­ings from its first global so­cio-eco­nomic foot­print study, show­cas­ing op­er­a­tions in the UAE and Saudi Ara­bia, two tar­get mar­kets for the Group in the Middle East.

Two key find­ings from the data high­light Ac­corHo­tels’ im­pact in terms of both jobs and wealth cre­ated by its op­er­a­tions, both on a global scale and as well as re­gion­ally in the UAE and Saudi Ara­bia.

The study de­ter­mined that Ac­corHo­tels sus­tains around 880,000 jobs glob­ally and close to 6,350 jobs be­tween the United Arab Emi­rates and the King­dom of Saudi Ara­bia.

In the UAE, Ac­corHo­tels’ op­er­a­tions have di­rectly cre­ated more than 3,000 jobs while sup­port­ing over 4,000 jobs lo­cally in to­tal. In Saudi Ara­bia, the Group’s ac­tiv­ity has di­rectly cre­ated over 1,400 jobs while it also sup­ports nearly 2,350 jobs in the King­dom.

The Group con­trib­utes €22 bil­lion to the global GDP, which is the equiv­a­lent of a coun­try like Cyprus. This con­tri­bu­tion en­com­passes the value added di­rectly by the Group, plus the value gen­er­ated by the ac­tiv­i­ties of its sup­pli­ers, by house­hold con­sump­tion and by pub­lic spend­ing.
