Quest Apartment Hotels has signed a five-year partnership with The Employee Mobility Institute (TEMI).

TEMI delivers training, networking and educational resources for workforce management professionals.

Quest is the Presenting Partner of TEMI’s Australasian Workforce Management Awards Program. The new partnership builds on Quest’s existing commitment to supporting HR and procurement professionals across the Asia-Pacific region.

The business has supported TEMI since 2012.

GM sales and marketing at Quest, Anthea Dimitrakopoulos, said the partnership helps the business sector.

“The Quest brand has grown hand in hand with the corporate travel industry, and we value the ongoing relationships we’ve built.,” she said. “Our teams provide innovative solutions to the major barriers to talent mobility across multiple business sectors, which is what TEMI is all about.

HR professionals institute deal will support Quest franchisees’ business

“In supporting TEMI we are supporting the wider corporate travel industry,” she said. Business travel is a key element of Quest franchisees’ business in over 130 properties across suburban, CBD and regional Australia.”

Deborah de Cerff, the founder of The Employee Mobility Institute, said formalising the relationship is important. The deal between Quest and TEMI will strengthen ties between industry and practitioners, she said.

“This new partnership will strengthen the supply chain and fund new programs and professional development initiatives for the benefit of all workforce management professionals.”

Quest’s network of franchisees support 80 per cent of the top 500 companies with tailored accommodation solutions.

The business has a dedicated extended stay team and a simplified booking process for corporates.

Quest, which was awarded a 5-star franchise rating for three consecutive years, has a 200-hotel target for 2030.
