• Fifty students from ADE and Tourism at the University of the Balearic Islands make up the second promotion of this training initiative with employment opportunities.

Fifty students of Business Administration and Tourism at the University of the Balearic Islands (UIB), make up the second class of the Training Classroom for Accommodation and Intermediation organized by Direct Beds. Its manager, Mireia Faugier, assures that for the second consecutive year she has counted on Dingus “for representing everything that a technological company can contribute to the tourism sector based on a business model in constant evolution, with innovation as a lever”. These are precisely some of the basic aspects of this initiative, which – in practice – becomes a bridge between the extension of training and the incorporation of university students into the labour market.

This project started last year with Dingus and two other participating companies, and has enabled 25 students to gain access to a job. In addition, says Faugier, “all of them have a career plan, something that says a lot about employers’ commitment not only to incorporate talent into their teams, but to keep it in the organization”.

In 2018, there are eight collaborating companies and fifty candidates for the initiative. In the case of Dingus, we sponsor both the training courses that take place at university headquarters and in our offices. The main attraction of this interaction is that the students who eventually join our brand will know in advance both the company and its organization chart and the main functions they can perform on the staff.

The first meeting has just taken place in the form of a general presentation. The CEO of Dingus took to the classroom an approach to our business model, its impact on tourism distribution and technology, in constant evolution, which makes possible an activity based on innovation and scalability. Jaume Monserrat referred to the technology we offer “in the form of solutions to improve the efficiency and profitability in the commercialization of tourist services”, to the Know-How that allows us to “establish the business rules of the sector as an engine for the development of new solutions” and to the internationalization that “allows proximity with the customer as a basis for growth”. Monserrat assured the fifty participants, three of whom will be incorporated into our project, of the importance for Dingus of our business vision, which is “to be the reference point of the tourist world in the commercial management of hotel reservations, through technology and business knowledge”.
