Paramount Hotel Group, a premier third party hotel management company, announced today that it has been awarded the management contract for the Doubletree by Hilton Hotel & Suites in Fairfield, New Jersey. Paramount Hotel Group CEO David Simon made the announcement.

Each of the hotel's 204 rooms includes complimentary Wi-Fi, a large work desk and ergonomic chair, mini-refrigerator and HDTV with premium channels. Suites feature additional space, a separate bedroom, living room and sofa bed. The hotel also houses Nectar, a full-service bar and trendy restaurant serving Fine American Cuisine using natural and locally grown ingredients, a 24-hour fitness center, indoor pool and business center.

Conference room capacity at the Doubletree by Hilton Fairfield is plentiful with over 16,000 sq. ft. of recently renovated meeting and event space. The hotel's largest conference room can accommodate up to 400 attendees, and its flexible ballrooms can accommodate any size business or social event, including weddings.

The Doubletree by Hilton Fairfield is conveniently located near major area highways and in close proximity to Meadowlands Expo Center, Newark International Airport, New York City and the recently opened American Dream Expo in nearby Secaucus, NJ. For guest convenience, the hotel also offers complimentary shuttle service within a five mile radius of the hotel.

"The Doubletree by Hilton Fairfield, NJ is a hotel with a long and storied history for me, one that began when I built the hotel in 1984 and continued for the next 14 years - through 1998 - when I managed the property," said Simon. "Originally developed as a Sheraton, the hotel has seen several brand changes including Radisson, Prime and Crowne Plaza. Today, carrying the Doubletree by Hilton flag, the hotel has been totally upgraded and is poised to achieve new levels of success and I am glad to be able to come back home, as it were, to help make that happen."

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.
