Sandals Resorts International (SRI) has described a video that has gone viral on social media regarding its hiring practices as misleading and downright spurious. The video asserts that the Jamaica-based resort is racist; employs only expatriates as general managers and executive chefs; and has contributed significantly to the displacement of several local entertainers. However, Sandals, which has in its employ more than 24,000 Caribbean workers, said that this was far from the truth, adding that the ratio of expats to Jamaicans is less than two per cent. SRI restated its commitment to emphasising Jamaican culture and its people in the entertainment that the hotel chain offers.
