As part of its continued mission to grow the tourism industry’s human resource capacity, the Saint Lucia Hotel & Tourism Association has launched the SLHTA Young Leaders Development Initiative. The project, inspired by the Caribbean Hotel & Tourism Association’s People Development Committee, aims to develop the talents of young employees in an effort to propel them into middle management positions in tourism and related sectors.

Led by a committee of SLHTA Hotel and Allied Member professionals, the initiative will target employees under the age of 35 with the goal of preparing them for middle management positions in the industry. The program will engage the Association’s public and private sector partners to provide training and mentorship opportunities that will build individual capacity and encourage upward mobility for participants in their respective fields.

The SLHTA, over the last few years has identified the professional development of the industry’s workforce as one of its key mandates. “Human Resource Development is globally coming into focus as being critical to productivity, competitiveness and in creating positive and empowering work cultures,” explained SLHTA CEO Noorani Azeez, “we expect that this program will meet the needs of our ambitious, intelligent industry workers who will be well primed to become multi-skilled managers who will grow with their organizations and meet the demands of a changing tourism industry”.
