A company-wide survey is conducted annually at all hotels. Results are bench-marked with industry leaders to include action plans implemented to promote high associate morale.
Health and Wellness.
HRI holds health and wellness fairs once a year to promote seasonal health opportunities (such as flu shots and fitness center discounts where available) to blood pressure and cholesterol screening as well as support tools/instruction on smoking cessation. These programs are designed to address our associate's needs.
All associates are invited to participate in the company benefits programs including: Medical, Dental, Vision, Life and 401K. The benefits package is rebid annually to secure best pricing.
An annual wage analysis is completed for all positions based upon performance and planned through the budget process.
All associates receive a ninety day review to ensure the company is supporting their needs in order to deliver the expected results. This review is followed by an annual formal review and any coaching, counseling or disciplinary action that may be required. Evaluations for succession planning within the company are designed at this time. HRIL promotes the use of performance improvement plans.
By peer nomination, each hotel nominates an associate of the Month from front line and heart of the house candidates. Managers are also selected and recognized quarterly. In finalizing the year, an employee and manager of the year are nominated and rewarded.
Associates develop and manage in house initiatives such as CARE, which stands for Caring, Attentive, Responsive, and Empowered in order to promote a commitment to total service quality that equates the brand personality.
