Ranjith Premraj joins Four Seasons Hotel Bengaluru as the director of people and culture
Ranjith Premraj’s association with the Four Season brand spans over 13 years across various locations. This is his 7th property and 4th pre-opening experience with the luxury brand.
He first joined Four Seasons in 2006 as one of the core members of the pre-opening team at the Four Seasons Hotel Mumbai as HR manager. The property was the brand’s first foray into the Indian subcontinent. Further to that, he was sent on a cross exposure to Four Seasons Hotel Singapore for an initiation to the brand’s culture and work environment, post which he worked with two properties in the Maldives and two properties in Dubai, UAE.
While he possesses a hands-on experience in a gamut of human resource functions such as training &development, employee relations and recruitment, it is really the trailblazing ‘culture carrier’ role that is quintessential to his role.
Several decades ago, Four Seasons introduced a mission statement based on the golden rule: 'To treat others as we’d wish to be treated.' It falls on Ranjith to ensure that this iconic service philosophy transpires as the single most differentiating aspect of the new Four Seasons Hotel Bengaluru.
