At the AAHOA headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia, Today’s Hotelier was proud to host its first ever hospitality industry round table. During the round table, the publication was able to sit down with some of the industry’s most esteemed professionals and talk about some of the most important questions plaguing the industry today. Among those professionals was esteemed hotelier Jyoti Sarolia.
The interviewers with Today’s Hotelier looked to these professionals when asking an abundance of thought provoking questions about the current state of the hotel industry. One topic that was brought up was the challenge of retaining and hiring qualified employees for hotel jobs. When asked this, Sarolia responded by saying that she invites all prospective hires to take a 15 minute walk around the hotel property before the beginning of their interview.
She goes on to detail that “After allowing them that time to engage with the property and employees, the interviewee is given a series of questions to assess how they would react in the environment.” Sarolia explained that this method helps managers figure out which candidates are truly interested and engaged about the position.
