Porches Inn at MASS MoCA Invites Guests to Art Country in the Berkshires

NORTH ADAMS, MA. May 17, 2017 — In the cultural hub of North Berkshire County, MA, Porches Inn at MASS MoCA has debuted a new Art Country package that offers art lovers access to four of the area’s renowned institutions: the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art’s (MASS MoCA), the Clark Institute, the Williams College Museum of Art, and Bennington Museum.

The Inn’s new ArtCountry package includes one ArtCountry Pass per adult per stay for complimentary admission to each museum, overnight accommodations, and buffet breakfast. Prices start at $270 per night based on double accommodations. The package is available for travel June 11 through September 24.

“With the location of Porches Inn literally across the street from MASS MoCA and the other museums just minutes away, our guests have a home base to experience what locals have always considered Art Country,” says Mel Karakaya, general manager of The Porches Inn at MASS MoCA. “We’re thrilled to be partnering with these venues to enhance that experience.”

MASS MoCA will kick off Art Country’s summer season with the opening of its new addition, Building 6, on May 28. The new space will add 130,000 square feet to the museum’s campus and feature work from artists like Robert Rauschenberg, Louise Bourgeois, James Turrell, Jenny Holzer, Laurie Anderson, and Gunnar Schonbeck (Bang on a Can). Located across the street from Porches Inn, MASS MoCA will be the largest contemporary art museum in the country once the new addition is complete.

Set in seven renovated Victorian-era buildings, The Porches Inn at MASS MoCA’s guest rooms and public spaces employ a clever synthesis of retro and contemporary designs.

Human Resources: Value Creation

Businesses must evolve to stay competitive and this is also true of employment positions within those organizations. In the hotel industry, for example, the role that HR professionals perform continues to broaden and expand. Today, they are generally responsible for five key areas - government compliance; payroll and benefits; employee acquisition and retention; training and development; and organizational structure and culture. In this enlarged capacity, HR professionals are no longer seen as part of an administrative cost center, but rather as a member of the leadership team that creates strategic value within their organization. HR professionals help to define company policies and plans; enact and enforce systems of accountability; and utilize definable metrics to measure and justify outcomes. Of course, there are always new issues for HR professionals to address. Though seemingly safe for the moment, will the Affordable Care Act ultimately be repealed and replaced and, if so, what will the ramifications be? There are issues pertaining to Millennials in the workforce and women in leadership roles, as well as determining the appropriate use of social media within the organization. There are new onboarding processes and e-learning training platforms to evaluate, in addition to keeping abreast of political issues like the minimum wage hike movement, or the re-evaluation of overtime rules. Finally, there are genuine immigration and deportation issues that affect HR professionals, especially if they are located in Dreamer Cities, or employ a workforce that could be adversely impacted by federal government policies. The March Hotel Business Review will take a look at some of the issues, strategies and techniques that HR professionals are employing to create and sustain value in their organization.
