InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) has confirmed plans to launch three new academies in China as part of efforts to develop new talent for the country's hospitality industry.

The operator unveiled its first Chinese IHG Academy in Shanghai five years ago to cater for the accelerated growth in the sector and to meet demand for talented workers. IHG has already revealed plans to double its presence in China with 150 new hotels over the next five years, a move that will require an additional 90,000 workers.

Three academies will now open in partnership with Shenzhen Polytechnic; Guangzhou City Construction College; and Tianjin Vocational Institute. IHG will work with the institutions to offer theoretical sessions by faculty members, hands-on internships and industry lectures with senior executives from the hotel operator.

Winnie Ng, vice president of human resources at IHG Greater China, said: "We believe that attracting, training and retaining qualified talents is crucial to our success. "This is not just for IHG, but for the sustained and greater prosperity of the hospitality industry as a whole."
