In June 2016, the Fair Job Hotels association was founded by 15 well-known members from the hotel industry, trade press and other partners. In the meantime, more than 70 hotels and more than ten industry partners have joined the initiative, which sees above all a good working atmosphere characterized by an open, fair and contemporary management style as the basis for the long-term success of a hotel business.
The aim of the association is to set common, binding values and standards for dealings in the working environment.
A partner hotel of the initiative can become one if it supports the “FAIRsprechen” and implements it in its business – in the sense of: “We promote and challenge talent”, and “We offer suitable professional challenges for many life models”.

The online platform EmobilHotels, created in spring 2020, presents a large selection of accommodations with charging stations for fully electric and hybrid cars in the Alpine region. Currently, over 3,000 hotels with charging stations, including over 300 Premium Members can be found on the EmobilHotels Google Maps. The map shows the two different ways to be displayed on the platform. While a listing as a gray POI (Point of Interest) only provides information about the location of the hotel and shows that e-charging stations are generally available, a green POI represents a so-called Premium Member Hotel. The Premium Members are presented on the platform with a detailed hotel description, suitable pictures and exact information about the charging infrastructure (number and type of charging stations). The website is available in German, Italian and English.
