In 2016, we received and processed a total of 52,572 curriculum vitae from all over the world. We are growing steadily and purposefully. During the year, we interviewed 15,484 candidates, of whom 5,600 were hired. The average global workforce stood at 10,126 workers (4.1% more than in 2015). This year we also launched our very own international employment platform, with career information for applicants interested in employment opportunities within the group.
For three consecutive years, our HR Department launched the Executive Development Programme and that will allows candidates and interns to develop their professional careers in Palladium Hotel Group's hotels and offices in the Americas and Europe. These programs seek to develop and improve management skills, strengthen leadership skills, exchange ideas between people from different backgrounds and experience, and improve knowledge of all departments that would greatly enhance future management abilities.
Also, we are currently selecting future hotel managers for Europe and the Americas within our strategic plan for expansion and growth in these regions.
We know for a fact that the exceptional team we have is the key factor to our success as a company. This is why we strongly encourage internal promotion by rewarding effort and talent; in 2016, 1,121 of our collaborators were promoted worldwide.
