USA, Clearwater, Florida. January 30, 2019

Hotel Internet Services (HIS), a full-service provider of internet services and solutions for the hospitality industry, has announced the launch of BeyondTV GuestCast™, an advanced casting solution that, while affordable for hoteliers to implement, provides guests with the ability to securely cast a wide range of personalized content from their own devices onto guestroom televisions.

Compatible with more than 1,000 mobile-based apps, the solution is significantly designed to provide hoteliers with a seamless implementation and management process, while ensuring ease-of-use for guests and providing complete protection over their privacy and personal data. With BeyondTV GuestCast, hotel guests are able to instantly cast their own content hassle-free from personal computers, iOS or Android-based devices. Guests can also rest assured that their sensitive data is never at risk of theft or unintential sharing, due to GuestCast's device isolation capabilities that prevent cross-room communication.

"Today's guests overwhelmingly favor online streaming services versus traditional video-on-demand offerings when it comes to in-room entertainment, with BeyondTV GuestCast serving as an affordable, yet fully functional solution that is capable of meeting this increasingly expected need," says Gary Patrick, CEO of Hotel Internet Services. "GuestCast not only provides users with the ability to continue accessing the content that they enjoy viewing at home, but critically provides them with the peace-of-mind that accessing such content is always completely safe despite being in a public environment."

Being an enterprise-grade hospitality solution, properties can quickly and seamlessly implement GuestCast, with the ability to operate on virtually any internet network or guestroom television model. The solution also integrates with a hotel's free-to-guest system. GuestCast further provides hoteliers with the ability to monitor system health and is backed by 24/7 support, ensuring that guests remain fully satisfied with their experience throughout the duration of their stay.

Human Resources: Confronting a Labor Shortage

With the unemployment rate at its lowest level in decades (3.7%), what has always been a perennial problem for human resource professionals - labor shortage - is now reaching acute levels of concern. It is getting harder to find and recruit qualified applicants. Even finding candidates with the skills to succeed in entry-level positions has become an issue. In addition, employee turnover rates remain extremely high in the hotel industry. As a result of these problems, hotel HR managers are having to rethink their recruitment strategies in order to hire the right talent for the right job. First, hotels have been forced to raise their wages and offer other appealing perks, as a way to attract qualified candidates. Secondly, HR managers are reassessing their interviewing techniques, focusing less on the answers they receive to questions and more on observable behavior. Part of this process includes role-playing during the interview, so that the recruiter can gauge how a candidate works through specific problems and interacts with other team members. Additionally, some HR managers are also creating internal talent pools as a way to address labor shortages. Instead of utilizing department resources to find new hires with specific skills for needed positions, hotels are cultivating talent pools internally and preparing their employees to assume leadership roles whenever the time comes. They are also placing greater emphasis on a company culture that is more performance-based, as a way to curb employee turnover, increase employee satisfaction, and assure higher levels of customer service. Finally, recognizing the importance of employee retention as a way to lessen the impact of a tight labor market, some HR managers are instituting generous reward programs in order to retain their top performers. The March Hotel Business Review will explore what some HR professionals are doing to address these and other issues in their departments.
