OPPORTUNITIESAt HHW, we aim to boost employment by hiring a majority of locals to form our team. The decline in the availabilty of job opportunities regionaly and within smaller cities can cause increased difficulties for the local communities. Alongside our constant development, HHW has been able to reduce the burden of these people by creating positions to be filled.
Internships for college and university students are also part of our employment framework. We present them with the opportunity to build a more solid foundation by acquiring levelled up skills and shaping themselves further through multiple experiences within the hospitality industry. Youth unemployment is a complex global issue and HHW continuously anticipates the possibilities of added positions; starting a path to economic independence for these young generations.
Sufficient training and teambuilding are conducted to ensure their smooth assimilation into our corporate working environment. The aim is to provide meaningful employment to help them earn a living and lead independent lives with pride and dignity.
KIDS FOR KIDS
In support of Malaysia’s 1st kids’ nation building programme which empowers children to grow into young entrepreneurs, HHW is pleased to be a part of this initiative by Change Your World. Under the Kids for Kids programme, these children will develop a sense of social responsibility and concern for UN Global issues; and are given guidance and support from philanthropies to turn into sustainable nation-building kidpreneurs. HHW shares in the beliefs of Change Your World that this programme will bring about change and impact within the nation for future generations.
In each aspect of our operations, HHW makes it a point to uphold strict moral ethics be it in our transactions, sourcing, purchasing and execution.
- Limiting Our Carbon Footprint
- Ethical & Sustainable Supply Chains
- Support Local Industries
ENVIRONMENTEco-friendly initiatives are implemented in all our hotels with an aim to reduce wastage of precious natural resources and avoiding unnecessary harm to the environment while leaving the lightest possible footprint in course of our daily operations.
In Collaboration With:
10,000 TREES PROGRAMME
HHW wants to do our part to preserve the environment which is why we have embarked on a pledge to plant 10,000 trees, locally and abroad by year 2028. Inspired by the International Tree Foundation, HHW has begun its tree-planting efforts in Melaka contributing to its ‘Clean & Green’ state government initiative in collaboration with the Melaka Historic City Council.
We hope that this small gesture will help build a better future and a more resilient Earth for our children. If you would like to contribute to this cause, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
SEA THE DIFFERENCE
HHW believes in playing an active role in the global effort to preserve the oceans, beaches, seas and waterways. By teaming together to collect beach trash, our aim is not only to make our beaches a nicer, safer place but also to improve the coastal and ocean ecosystem.
More than that, HHW also plans to collaborate with a local marine protection organisation to collect data on the actual scale of the marine debris problem. This effort is a first step in raising awareness, to bring attention to the problem – and start to find real, practical solutions, instead of just organising clean-ups.
NO PLASTIC IS FANTASTIC
The amount of plastic debris discarded has doubled over the last 50 years causing plastic pollution to have an immense negative impact on our oceans and wildlife health. On account of this, HHW believes that it is crucial to partake and contribute to effective interventions for reduction.
HHW has installed recycling bins at all hotel lift lobbies where guests are encouraged to responsibly discard their used plastic bottles. The bottles collected are sold to a local recycling centre. At the end of the year, HHW nominates a charity organisation and the money collected from the recycling plant is donated to the selected organisation.
HHW has also made a pledge to discontinue all single-use plastic materials by the year 2021. Our recent commitment factors in the replacement of plastic drinking water bottles with glassware in all our function rooms, and the elimination of single-use toiletry bottles through a transition of current polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles to refillable bottles.
SAVE A SOAP
HHW has joined efforts with our amenities provider towards soap recycling, giving used soaps a second life. The hospitality industry throws away billions of bars of soap annually. HHW is devoted to ensuring that our soaps does not become part of the thousands of kilograms wastage in overcrowded landfills.
ONE LESS STRAW
500 million straws are used and discarded every day in the United States alone. That’s 175 billion a year filtering into landfills and the environment, littering waterways and oceans. One Less Straw is a global movement to eliminate plastic drinking straws, to reduce the use of non-biodegradable plastic and create awareness about pollution.
Playing our part, all dining outlets under HHW have pledged to limit the use of plastic straws served with beverages. We encourage all our guests to support our participation in the One Less Straw initiative. Less consumption means less waste and less straws.
FINISHED WITH FINS
Studies have shown that around 73 million sharks are finned every year. These 73 million sharks die from lack of oxygen because they are not able to move to filter the water through their gills or are eaten by other fish.
HHW is working together with World Wildlife Fund (WWF) in a pledge not to serve, promote or trade sharks fin and shark products. Let us all join the movement to stop cruelty to sharks by removing sharks fin soup from our menus. It is a small gesture, but by this, we are making our stand against animal abuse.
To HHW, transitioning our energy usage innovatively into renewable energy sources plays an integral part in our sustainability goals and we go all out operating responsibly to address these issues. In an effort to minimize our environmental footprint and contribute to the offset of carbon emissions, HHW has switched to energy efficient equipment and appliances. We are working towards having rooftop solar panels installed in all our hotels. We believe that every possible action taken leads to a more sustainable future that will not only have a positive impact on people and the planet, but also enables companies not rely on carbon-emitting fossil fuels to power our businesses.
CARING WITH KLOTH CARES
HHW is the FIRST hospitality group to sign partnership with ‘Kloth Cares Fabric Recycling Movement’. With up to 2 million kilograms in a day, textile waste makes up 5% in our landfills instead of being recycled. Inspired by Kloth Cares and their movement, HHW has donated 3.7 thousand kilograms of discarded linens as our flag off contribution to reducing methane release which is a significant contributor to global warming.
