The Kimpton Hotel & Restaurant Group, LLC is a San Francisco, California, based hotel and restaurant brand owned by the Intercontinental Hotels Group (IHG). Founded in 1981 by Bill Kimpton and led by Chief Executive Officer Mike DeFrino, the group was the largest chain of boutique hotels in the United States in 2011. It currently operates 68 hotels with a total of 13,357 bedrooms. New hotels have been announced for Indianapolis, Los Angeles, Paris, Barcelona, Frankfurt, Grenada, Bali, Tokyo, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Rotterdam and Sanya.
For nearly 40 years, Kimpton has been committed to creating a culture meant to empower everyone – from the servers and chefs to the GMs and directors – to take ownership of the work they do, act on intuition and bring creativity to the job every day.
Kimpton’s workplace encourages employees to bring their authentic selves to work, which in turn, increases job satisfaction and directly impacts positive guest sentiment. This starts with understanding who Kimpton employees are on a fundamentally human level and creating an environment where their individuality is celebrated and appreciated.
Offering unique competitive benefits – both tangible perks and intangible benefits – is a key factor to Kimpton successfully attracting and retaining top talent. Understanding that different employees are motivated by unique benefits, Kimpton provides a variety of best in class perks, including sabbaticals, child and elder back-up care, parental leave, tuition reimbursement, “Bill’s Honor Roll” to recognize children of employees, bereavement leave (for people and pets) and lifestyle offerings such as fitness classes and membership discounts.
Kimpton also encourages both local and national community-building events that foster strong personal connections that align with Kimpton’s corporate social responsibility commitment in the LGBTQ+ space and nonprofit initiatives tied to fighting child hunger and environmental stewardship.
