In addition to these milestones, the brand launched a new prototype for Red Roof's extended stay offering, HomeTowne Studios, and executed a significant increase in new franchise agreements.

George Limbert, Red Roof president, said, "Red Roof's 2021 strong results are a testament to the continued increased demand for our brand, and our agility and responsiveness to the evolving needs and wants of our guests while driving value for all of our stakeholders." He concluded, "In a year of unique challenges for the hotel industry, Red Roof leveraged its strengths, identified new markets, and capitalized on opportunities to outperform in key industry metrics significantly. Red Roof is well positioned for sustained profitable growth."

Limbert was confirmed as president of Red Roof in mid-2021.

Hotel Human Resources: The Great Resignation


Hotels have always struggled with the task of attracting and retaining qualified employees. At any given moment, hotels are consistently understaffed which makes providing quality guest services a persistent challenge. Additionally, as a consequence of the pandemic, there has been a mass exodus of workers who left their employers and haven't returned. This phenomenon has become known as the Great Resignation. In one month alone last year, over 900,000 employees left hospitality jobs, affecting all areas of operations including frontline workers,  restaurant and housekeeping staff, and hotel management. To overcome these challenges, Human Resource departments are implementing a variety of solutions. First, they are reassessing their wage and benefits guidelines in an effort to become more competitive. They are also leveraging digital technology to attract and retain talent, and to improve the employee experience. The goal is to centralize communications, enhance employee engagement, empower independent decision-making, and expand educational opportunities. The March Hotel Business Review will explore what some HR professionals are doing to address these critical employment issues in their respective departments.
