USA, Fairfield, New Jersey. July 24, 2019

Paramount Hotel Group, a full-service third party hotel management company, announced today that it has been awarded the management contract for the Red Roof PLUS+ Long Island in Westbury, New York. The property was recently acquired by a subsidiary of the Beechwood Organization in Jericho, New York. Paramount Hotel Group CEO David Simon made the announcement.

Located close to all local business and shopping in Garden City/Westbury and just minutes from LaGuardia and Kennedy airports and Long Island beaches, the 163-room hotel has just completed a brand new and complete renovation of all guest rooms, suites and public spaces, complete with a new lobby, new flat screen televisions and new hardwood flooring in all guest rooms. The renovation also included brand new furniture, all new bedding, updated granite bathrooms and window treatments in all guest rooms. Other amenities include premium TV channels, refrigerators, microwaves, full laundry facilities, free self-parking, and free Wi Fi.

"We are very pleased to be partnering with this successful, well-respected Long Island developer in this venture," said Simon. "The hotel's strategic location near leisure destinations, shopping venues and corporate activity makes it an ideal hotel acquisition in today's environment.

"We are particularly excited at Paramount as this represents our sixth new management agreement in the past 90 days. We also have contracts in place to manage an additional two hotels that are currently under construction so our plan to grow strategically by establishing and reinforcing strong relationships with quality owners is proving to be successful."

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.
