Dawn Wynne

Chief People Officer, Dalata Hotel Group
Our Dalata Difference site celebrates the heart and soul of Dalata Hotel Group - our incredible people. This platform is dedicated to sharing your inspiring stories, highlighting our culture of camaraderie, and keeping you updated on any new initiatives. Thank-you to all who contributed and please, take a moment to savour a slice of Dalata life.

As Ireland’s largest hotel group and one that continues to grow across the UK and Continental Europe, it’s important we not only attract the best people but also retain them. We understand that in order to sustain growth, we must nurture the talent within our ranks and that is why in 2023 we were pleased to launch our enhanced employee benefit package.

Our people can now stay in all of our 53 hotels for just £/€60 a night and enjoy a 50% discount on all food, hot beverages and soft drinks served throughout our hotels. We have also increased the budget available to our chefs to ensure a hot, healthy meal option is always available, day or night, for our people to enjoy, with colleagues, while on duty.  

Looking ahead, we have really exciting expansion plans which will present our people with enormous opportunities for further development as they take the next step in their career with Dalata. Our people are not just employees; you are ambassadors of our brand, and your enthusiasm radiates in the memorable experiences you create.

We really want the pages of The Dalata Difference to be a platform where we can celebrate you and everything you do. In a company of over 5,500 employees, it’s impossible for us all to know each other, but we hope this publication helps bring us that little bit closer.  

With that in mind I want to thank everyone who has contributed to this edition. I loved reading about the terrific efforts of our people in Finsbury Park and, while I always knew we are a talented bunch, Carlean Sam-Orhin’s bakes look delicious! I really hope you enjoy this edition. Take some time to put your feet up and enjoy a slice of Dalata life.

Take Care
