Challenge Take Off! 2022

This year's challenge has come to an end. Congratulations to the winners!

What is Take Off?


 Take Off! is the worldwide student competition organized by Accor. Our competition enables students to be evaluated by Accor Leadership!


For the last 10 years, Accor has been challenging students from every corner of the globe with various issues connected with the group’s activities, such as loyalty programs, F&B services and lifestyle brands.


This year's topic is based around Talent Attraction. 

The question we ask you is: What innovative practices can Accor adopt on the post-Covid rebound to attract talent?
