USA, Atlanta, Georgia. September 05, 2018

HP Hotels, a leading third-party hotel management company with a portfolio of over 40 hotels in 17 states, is implementing PurpleCloud Technologies' hotel task software across its entire management portfolio. HP Hotels President and CEO Charles Oswald and PurpleCloud Technologies CEO and Co-Founder Adria Levtchenko made the announcement.

PurpleCloud Technologies, whose customizable modules include Housekeeping, Engineering, Front Office, Service Person and Management, streams real-time data directly to hotel associates to improve the efficiency of hotel operations, while also collecting significant amounts of data to create trend reports for upper-level hotel executives.

"The PurpleCloud Technologies hotel task software is an important technology implementation for us that will help with overall efficiencies in operations and improve staff performance and the guest experience, while maximizing investment returns to our owners," Oswald said. "Important factors in adopting this technology were its user acceptance and multi-language text and speech capabilities, as well as PurpleCloud's ability to integrate additional functions into the platform."

Oswald added that the PurpleCloud Tech implementation includes customization that integrates the platform with the company's human resources functions and will be deployed to HP Hotels' properties that represent nearly 6,500 rooms under management.

"We are privileged to be working with HP Hotels, a leader in the hospitality space in understanding and adopting new technologies to improve guest services, staff performance and overall profitability. We look forward to an outstanding long-term relationship," added Levtchenko, who also serves on HP Hotels' newly formed executive Advisory Council with an expertise in technology implementations.

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.
