USA, Chicago, Illinois. December 06, 2018

Rosemont's first boutique hotel and closest off-airport property to O'Hare International Airport, The Rose Hotel Chicago/O'Hare, Tapestry Collection by Hilton, which recently opened its doors at 5200 Pearl Street, is thrilled to welcome Nicholas Malloy as the Executive Chef of the property. Chef Malloy comes to The Rose Hotel Chicago/O'Hare team with an impressive background that spans high-end hotels and independently owned restaurants around the Chicagoland area.

Chef Malloy's expansive background began back in 2009, when he graduated from Kendall College Culinary School and joined the team at the independently owned 545 North Bar and Grill. From there, Malloy moved on to become Lead Supervisor of the Banquet Culinary Team at the JW Marriott Chicago. In 2014, he joined the Chicago Marriott Naperville as a Sous Chef, where he became the leader in designing the menu for their Artisan Table.

“We are beyond ecstatic to welcome Nicholas to our growing team,” says Micaela Haas, General Manager of The Rose Hotel Chicago/O'Hare, Tapestry Collection by Hilton. “Nicholas brings with him an inviting personality, and has already embraced our motto One Team One Dream when serving patrons and working alongside our fellow colleagues. We are eager for our hotel guests and the public alike to stop in and experience Chef's new menus.”

Human Resources: An Era of Transition

Traditionally, the human resource department administers five key areas within a hotel operation - compliance, compensation and benefits, organizational dynamics, selection and retention, and training and development. However, HR professionals are also presently involved in culture-building activities, as well as implementing new employee on-boarding practices and engagement initiatives. As a result, HR professionals have been elevated to senior leadership status, creating value and profit within their organization. Still, they continue to face some intractable issues, including a shrinking talent pool and the need to recruit top-notch employees who are empowered to provide outstanding customer service. In order to attract top-tier talent, one option is to take advantage of recruitment opportunities offered through colleges and universities, especially if they have a hospitality major. This pool of prospective employees is likely to be better educated and more enthusiastic than walk-in hires. Also, once hired, there could be additional training and development opportunities that stem from an association with a college or university. Continuing education courses, business conferences, seminars and online instruction - all can be a valuable source of employee development opportunities. In addition to meeting recruitment demands in the present, HR professionals must also be forward-thinking, anticipating the skills that will be needed in the future to meet guest expectations. One such skill that is becoming increasingly valued is “resilience”, the ability to “go with the flow” and not become overwhelmed by the disruptive influences  of change and reinvention. In an era of transition—new technologies, expanding markets, consolidation of brands and businesses, and modifications in people's values and lifestyles - the capacity to remain flexible, nimble and resilient is a valuable skill to possess. The March Hotel Business Review will examine some of the strategies that HR professionals are employing to ensure that their hotel operations continue to thrive.
