Aldemar Resorts celebrate International Women’s Day and put women in the spotlight, as they deserve it.
We embrace the vision, standards and principles of the United Nations and we became the first Greek company in the hospitality industry to sign the Charter of Diversity. We take the initiative in favor of equality, diversity and integration aligned to 5th Sustainable Development Goal which refers to Gender Equality.
Women’s empowerment is Society’s Empowerment!
According to the World Economic Forum’s Global Gender Gap Report 2021, another generation of women will have to wait for gender parity for 135 years!
Changing the norms and stereotypes about women’s abilities and skills that govern society is a vital path for Aldemar’s strategy according to our values. We take action in the key areas of respecting rights, building skills and creating opportunities by proceeding with our efforts on women in leadership, equal pay and the gender pay gap. The percentage of women occupying has risen to 51% (data from Aldemar Olympian Village) of all employees, a number that emphasizes the empowerment of women. The company has integrated into its operation specific policies and initiatives, such as maternity support, career advancement and the promotion of women to leadership positions. As a responsible company, Aldemar Resorts Group fully complies with the current legislation, which comes as a natural consequence of its philosophy.
Our vision includes a world in which every girl and woman would live the life she desires unconstrained by the patriarchal social and institutional structures.
We #Celebrate Women’s Day every day!

“My position in the company is both a challenge and a great responsibility. The daily development and knowledge I receive from people of different cultures, who visit our country in general and the Group’s hotels in particular, is the challenge for me.

My thoughts and feelings are accurately described by my favorite quote, by the writer Maxim Gorky, “When work is joy, life is good. When work is a duty, life is slavery”. As an employee of the Aldemar Group, life is good and full of opportunities for development”.
