OUR CULTUREOur Group has greatly expanded since its founding, but still preserves the fundamental elements of its culture and family spirit. Our corporate culture is rooted in the principle that we are a big family and that our people are our greatest strength. We take good care of our people and they take good care of our customers! Thus we make sure to sustain an environment where all employees feel they belong. Grecotel is staffed with wonderful people from different cultures who have made us who we are today. Our people are proud to work for us and we are proud of them as well!
We foster a culture of collaboration and teamwork. This creates an energizing and innovative environment where people can deliver the best services for our customers. We are creating a corporate culture where everyone feels valued and talent has the freedom and opportunity to grow, learn, and evolve. When we recruit we look for people who we believe will thrive in this environment.
We are driven by our passion, as we constantly seek out challenges and identify new opportunities. We work hard to connect with our customers and earn their loyalty for life. We are a place where talented people can make bold contributions towards excellence, a company where new ideas are shared and conventions are challenged.
Our values are the foundation of everything we do and guide the decisions our people take every day. These values shape both our long-term strategy and the way we serve our customers. Our values reflect the vision of our founder, Nikos Daskalantonakis, and we expect all our employees to embrace them:
- Receiving each and every guest as beloved family members coming home from afar is at the core of Grecotel’s philosophy of hospitality. Deeply ingrained in all its staff’s hearts, this principle translates into a warm, genuine welcome and an authentic Greek heartfelt hospitality experience throughout Grecotel’s guests’ stay, where every effort is made to offer them the best holidays of their lives.
- Impeccable service of the highest standards. With the aiming of providing the best possible experience for its guests, Grecotel’s highly skilled staff leaves no detail unattended, from the crisp linen at the a la carte and buffet restaurants to the variety of pillows in the guestrooms, suites, and villas; the manicured lawns and colorful gardens; the discreet attentiveness and sincere interest with which each guest is served and preferences remembered and satisfied.
- Deep commitment to the communities where Grecotel properties are located. Having chosen beachfront locations of superb beauty and history, Grecotel works tirelessly to preserve the natural environment around them; at the same time, the Group makes every effort to hire locally and invest in its people’s long-term professional development and advancement, creating highly skilled hospitality professionals that add to the community’s capital.
