Corporate Social Responsibility
At the heart of how we operate our business is our crucial responsibility to take a proactive role in making a positive difference in the communities that are home to our customers, our associates, and our bussiness partners.
At Meritus Hotels & Resorts, we are proud of the role we have played thus far, supporting selected programmes that bring tangible results in aid of causes that support ecological sustainability and the welfare of children and the elderly, especially in the areas of health and education.
We believe that strong, progressive communities are essential in the lasting success of any business. As our organisation continues to grow and evolve, we are evermore dedicated to taking a personal, unified approach in caring for our society and bringing about sustainable improvements where we can.
Supporting our local communities
We continue to take a community-driven approach to caring for our society through financial contributions, in-kind donations, and volunteer work by the different teams within our organisation.
Closest to our hearts are causes that alleviate hunger, poverty, and illnesses, particularly amongst children.
Our annual ‘Stars of Christmas’ charity drive continue the tradition of spreading the joy of the Yuletide Season to beneficiaries of non-profit organisations committed to providing programmes and services to help children who have special needs or are suffering from a range of chronic and life-threatening illnesses. With the philanthropic support of donors and volunteers, we at Meritus work together with partner organisations to bring hope and cheer to the beneficiaries and their families.
Caring for the environment
Respect for Mother Earth is central to our business strategy. At Meritus Hotels & Resorts, we aim to increase our operational efficiency through a greener approach – working to reduce our direct impact on the environment, and creating more sustainable ways of doing business.
Our deepening commitment to protect the environment is reflected in the sustainability programmes rolled out across our hotels and resorts.
As part of the group-wide ‘Meritus Loves the Earth’ green campaign, guests and employees alike are actively engaged in waste reduction and energy conservation measures, practising the 3 Rs (Reduce, Re-use, and Recycle) where possible. The hotels’ food and beverage operations also champion sustainable alternatives to endangered seafood items, amongst other eco-friendly initiatives, to include collaborative efforts with relevant organisations such as the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF).
Creating opportunities for talent growth and excellence
Developing talent and growing their pool remain an essential part of our long-term strategy. We are committed to tackling this issue not only within our businesses, but throughout the society at large.
We aim to continually raise the bar for product and service excellence in the markets where we are present, embracing change and looking out for new ideas to optimise and new goals to achieve. We aim to provide opportunities for others to gain more knowledge and experience, so they in turn can share these and together, contribute to the exciting growth of the tourism industry.
