Hollander Hospitality Continues Its Sustainable Energy Efforts in Its Newest Hotel, Delta Hotels by Marriott Seattle Everett

USA, St. Augustine, Florida. August 16, 2018

Premier hotel development and management company, Hollander Hospitality, has completed an $18 million-dollar renovation of the former Holiday Inn Downtown Everett and announced the official grand opening of the 232-room Delta Hotels by Marriott Seattle Everett, in Everett, Washington. The former Holiday Inn was the most recent acquisition for Bellingham, Washington-based Hollander Hospitality, a local, privately-owned Northwest company, committed to investing in the region.

This is Delta's first branded hotel in the Pacific Northwest and signals the continued global expansion of the brand since its endorsement into the Marriott signature portfolio. This latest project by Hollander Hospitality is another example of their commitment to implementing sustainable technologies that conserve energy, reduce the carbon footprint and offer the best possible guest experience.

As part of Hollander Hospitality's green initiatives, they have once again invested in NuTek International's Ozone Laundry Support Systems™ (OLSS) for their Delta Hotel's On-Premises Laundry.

Loren Terpstra, Hollander's Director of Operations stated "NuTek has provided us with their cutting-edge Ozone Laundry Support Systems and we have seen amazing results in both the cleanliness of our linen/terry and significant energy savings. Currently we have their OLSS installed in all of our laundry operations…"

NuTek's UL Recognized ozone technology saves on water, sewer, gas, electric and laundry chemicals for each load of light to medium soiled linens processed. It has been specifically tested and proven to extend linen life by 23%. It has also been specifically tested and proven to kill 99.99% of all bacteria and viruses. Rinsing all linens in ozonated cold water assures superior sanitation, from guest room sheets and towels to housekeeping rags and mops.

Jay Montanus, CEO of Sustainable Solutions, LLC, dba NuTek International, stated "We've enjoyed supporting Hollander's commitment to sustainability and improving their laundry operations since 2013. They identified immediate evidence of energy savings and improved laundry results and since then NuTek has been invited to provide our OLSS in every renovation or new development Hollander has brought to the market."

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.
