Hospes Hotels allies with ODILO EdTech to encourage employee training

  • The approximately 450 employees of the boutique hotel chain will have unlimited learning tailored to their needs and preferences
  • The training will include two itineraries: one transversal in ‘soft skills’ and another specific to each of the twelve departments around which the company articulates its workforce.
  • Hospes Hotels is the first hotel chain that is committed to unlimited learning for its teams as part of its objective to attract and retain talent.
  • ODILO has designed specific programs that meet the needs of the corporate world and give L&D teams the ability to train their teams in an integrated manner

The Spanish hotel chain Hospes Hotels, which manages a collection of historic buildings dedicated to rest and wellness, combines tradition and modernity in an avant-garde style that is replete with details.  Now, they are trusting ODILO, the Spanish ed-tech company that allows any organization to build a tailored learning ecosystem, to train their 450 employees in their 9 locations: Alicante, Cáceres, Córdoba, Granada, Madrid, Mallorca, Salamanca, Sevilla, and Valencia. 

The alliance between the two companies serves the hotel chain’s commitment to encourage ‘upskilling’ and ‘reskilling’ of its employees so that they can develop professionally and personally. In this regard, a recent report by PwC on “The impact of inflation on talent management”, already points out that training (51%) will be one of the key areas within organizations in 2023 in order to boost employees’ skills.

Hospes Hotels emphasizes the importance of this strategic collaboration in its objective to attract and retain talent; this is a key issue in a sector such as the hotel industry, one of the sectors with the highest turnover in our country. “We trust ODILO for its ability to respond to the challenge of finding a training provider that adapts to the needs of each of our employees. Thanks to this alliance, all of them will be able to develop themselves in what they most want according to their interests,” says Carolina Balaguer, Director of Human Resources at Hospes Hotels.

In fact, the partnership will also streamline the onboarding processes that the hotel chain implements when a new employee is hired. Thus, each new employee will be able to benefit from specific learning paths and experiences, which will allow them to better immerse themselves in the company’s culture and its day-to-day operations and, as far as the company is concerned, optimize its resource management in terms of saving time and money.

For his part, Alberto Abel, spokesperson for ODILO, points out that “collaborating with a hotel company as important as Hospes Hotels is a sign that unlimited learning is an ally to promote talent retention among employees. This strategic alliance will allow us to develop ‘unlimited learning ecosystems’, adapted to the needs of the company’s 450 employees“. ODILO currently offers its educational content to more than 8,500 organizations in 52 countries.

Two learning itineraries also available to families

This strategic alliance will allow ODILO to offer Hospes Hotel staff two learning itineraries with which to develop themselves personally and professionally.  One of these itineraries is available to all employees to train them in ‘soft skills,’ multidisciplinary competencies in high demand in the job market regardless of sector.  

At the same time, ODILO has designed a second complementary itinerary that encompasses specific content for employees of each of the departments at Hospes Hotels: quality and decoration, information and maintenance, gastronomy, hospitality and client experience, leadership, vision and strategy, planning and finance, wellness, sales, marketing and communication, and talent management. 

Every employee will have the opportunity to access a wide variety of multiformat resources including ebooks, podcasts, press, and magazines, as well as courses and educational experiences, which make up the unlimited learning ecosystem.  Every employee will be able to extend their knowledge based on their needs.  As an additional employee benefit, their families will also be able to use the ODILO unlimited learning ecosystems. 


ODILO is a B2B2C company which has created a new category in the education market: Unlimited Learning Ecosystems. In this way, the firm allows any organization to create its own fully customized learning ecosystems, and offer its users unlimited access to the world’s largest catalog of educational content and create all kinds of learning experiences without restrictions. In addition, through the use of Artificial Intelligence, ODILO enables the creation of unique learning paths and experiences for both organizations and users.

More than 8,500 organizations in 52 countries – including governments in Europe, North America, Latin America, Southeast Asia, Australia and Africa; academic leaders such as Peking University and top companies such as Vodafone, Nestlé and Banco Santander – have already created Unlimited Learning Ecosystems from the more than 3.9 million pieces of content available on the platform. In total, ODILO is part of the learning experiences of more than 170 million users worldwide.
