Award-Winning JC Communications Now Offers Ad Hoc PR Services for Hotels and Resorts

USA, Laguna Niguel, CA, California. April 16, 2019

In response to changing dynamics in the hospitality industry, JC Communications, LLC is the first PR agency to now offer ad hoc PR services for hotels, resorts, and other travel services.

According to Agency President, Jane Coloccia, "For many years, hotels have been forced to sign pricey annual retainer agreements with PR agencies in order to be able to avail themselves of PR services - whether they need them on an ongoing basis or not. And in many cases, some of the larger agencies don't even include press release writing services in those retainers. As a result of marketplace demand, JC Communications now offers the ability for hotels to purchase individual press releases or PR projects without having to commit to an annual retainer."

Ms. Coloccia adds that quite often a hotel just needs to announce a room or meeting space renovation or a new restaurant name and concept and they don't need ongoing PR services for an entire year. Or they might want to do a series of releases counting down to a renovation or new hotel opening, announce a new General Manager or Director of Sales, or send out a release to promote a special package to drive business in a need period.

Another option is that hotels just want a digital release distribution to assist with Search Engine Optimization or they want to combine a digital release distribution with a release sent out to JC Communications' carefully curated list of media contacts. The Agency will also compile a list of business media in the hotel's respective city for distribution in addition to hotel trades, travel agent trades, meeting and incentive media, newspapers, magazines, online publications, freelance travel writers, and more.

JC Communications' ad hoc PR services are currently being used by a variety of individual hotels around the world including those belonging to leading brands such as Marriott Hotels, Sheraton Hotels, Ritz-Carlton, Fairfield Inn & Suites, Renaissance Hotels, Fauchon Hospitality, and many others.

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.
