All AccorHotels UK employees previously earning below £7.20 per hour will now be paid the new National Living Wage, irrespective of age.
The government introduced the new National Living Wage for employees aged 25 and over from April 1.
The French hotel group, which employs more than 5,000 people across brands such as Sofitel, Novotel and Ibis in the UK, will use the £7.20 rate as a minimum for all permanent employees from the same date.
UK and Ireland managing director, Thomas Dubaere, said: “Sustainable performance and ambitious development plans are at the core of AccorHotels continuous growth strategy in the UK.
“We believe in investing in our people irrespective of age alongside the lifelong learning and international mobility opportunities in the group.
“We are proud to be part of an industry which is creating jobs and we want to take this opportunity to have all members of AccorHotels employees, including under 25, on the National Living Wage and above.”
