The discounts follow a host of additions to the company’s “impressive” suite of employee benefits.
Staff employed by the hotel group are now able to stay in any of its 53 hotels for £60 a night, as well as a 50% discount – up from 25% – on all food, hot beverages and soft drinks.
Additionally, Dalata has increased the budget available to its chefs to ensure a “hot, wholesome and healthy” meal option is always available, day or night, for people to enjoy with colleagues while on duty.
The hotel group has also made changes to staff facilities to ensure that its people have “an inviting space in which to take breaks, build connections with colleagues and get ready for the day ahead”.
Claire Oliver, group HR manager of Dalata, said: “As Ireland’s largest hotel operator, and one of the UK’s fastest growing, Dalata Hotel Group prides itself on our commitment to a people-first approach that is as welcoming and rewarding to its staff as it is to its guests.
“Our new benefits mean our people can celebrate in our hotels with family and friends and always receive 50% off their bill or they can enjoy one rate in all cities all year round for a stay in our hotels.”
She added: “As we expand our hotel portfolio and enter new markets, our people will always be our priority and we want them to grow with us and benefit from our success.”
The new benefits add to Dalata’s other staff offering, which includes a bike to work scheme, discounted friends and family rates for hotels, performance recognition incentives, management development programmes and company pension scheme for senior managers.
The company is currently in expansion mode across the UK, Ireland and continental Europe, with a series of hotel openings in recent years and a pipeline of openings planned through to 2026.
