By Cristina Ramos, COO Franchised Hotels, Accor Southern Europe
Together with SGS, one of the world's largest networks of audit specialists, we will work to make our number one priority a reality at this time: to turn Accor hotels in Spain, Portugal, Italy, Greece, Israel and Malta into places where maximum security for both employees and customers is paramount
With SGS, we go beyond good intentions and to meet our health and safety commitments. We will grant the ALLSAFE seal only to those hotels that have obtained this external certification. Our partnership with SGS, a world reference in inspection, verification and certification, helps us guarantee the safety and well-being of our clients in Spain, Portugal, Italy, Greece, Israel and Malta by implementing additional cleaning measures in our hotels.
The new protocols applied by our hotels are being verified and audited by SGS professionals, in order to obtain the Accor ALLSAFE seal.
