Carver Companies Finalize Expansion into Canada

Atlanta, GA. February 08, 2018 -

In an aggressive growth move, Carver Hotel Group (CHG) and Carver-Olson Hospitality Search (CO) have announced the finalization of expansion of their services into Canada.  The completion of this process will allow for Canadian clients to assure utilization of Canadian citizens on their assignments, to be invoiced and transact business in Canadian Dollars (CAD); and for Task Force Consultants to invoice and be paid in CAD, utilizing the same “Five Day Pay” commitment that has set Carver apart from their competitors in the United States.

In addition to finalizing the Canadian market expansion, The Carver Companies CFO Susan Hart announced a major upgrade to BIB or Business Information Bridge, Carver’s proprietary CRM platform, to allow for multi-currency transactions, paving the way for continued expansion beyond North America.

The Task Force division of CHG will begin representing Canadian Task Force professionals and aligning them with Canadian clients. An empty seat in a hotel potentially means lost revenue. CHG contract professionals eliminate that risk with their expertise and immediate proactive efforts. Depending on the need of the hotel, Carver professionals are available for time frames from two weeks to six months.

Executive search conducts customized recruiting while task force temporarily places professionals into suddenly needed roles, often as quickly as 24 hours from the time a request is received. Carver-Olson Hospitality Search will begin conducting customized recruiting to fill executive and management roles, both within hotels and corporate offices in the Canadian market.

The dynamic combination of Carver-Olson Hospitality Search and Carver Hotel Group ensures that every role is filled for clients, whether today, tomorrow or forever.

“Hospitality people are needed to recruit hospitality people – that’s an important point. Within our Task Force and Search divisions, our teams consist of individuals with backgrounds in hospitality,” said Vice President and Managing Director of Search Peggy Olson. “They know the needs, the culture and how a hotel works, which better equips them to find the right candidate.”

The extension of services into Canada anchors the role of The Carver Companies as the powerhouse of hospitality focused, human capital organizations within North America.

“Since our inception, our goal has been to become ‘the only name you need’ in hospitality. This move expands our reach from that position in the U.S. to throughout North America,” said Carver’s Chief Development Officer Charlene “Charley” Carter. “Strategically, we look forward to maximizing our relationships in Canada and beginning to look toward our next expansion, the United Kingdom.”

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.
