Sands China Academy
Macao has become a leader in hospitality excellence, thanks in part to the efforts of Sands China Ltd. and the Adelson Advanced Education Center, which provides development programs to Team Members and local aspiring hospitality professionals. In 2015, Sands China accelerated its commitment to building top hospitality talent in the Macao community with the Sands China Academy, a platform that gives Team Members and locals the training they need to keep delivering outstanding experiences to guests.
The Academy offers Team Member training and development in areas such as job performance, personal development and team engagement. The company also provides educational subsidies for Team Members to complete their secondary education. To date, these investments have resulted in more than 16,000 promotions, with over 50 percent of those accelerating to supervisory or management roles. Close to 1,500 Team Members have benefited from horizontal mobility opportunities through career development initiatives such as the Integrated Resort Career Development Program.
In addition, Sands China provides scholarships to six Macao institutions for non-Team Members who want to work in the hospitality industry. In 2015, Sands China also announced the Career Experience Opportunity Programme, enabling local university students to receive on-the-job training in various operation areas at Sands Integrated Resorts. Upon graduation, students will be offered employment by Sands China in supervisory or above positions.
