Changes occur every day in the hospitality industry, but one of the biggest is the high turnover of employees. Much of this can be attributed to the people who make up staff—students, part-time and those who work in seasonal locations. This can make building the perfect team difficult.

Adam Robin, operations director, Cabo Flats—a Mexican chain—has worked in a number of restaurants and has cultivated the ability to mold a perfect team that is dedicated to serving the company.. Below, Robin details four tips to keep in mind during the hiring process.  

  • Find experienced individuals who you have either worked with in the past or have interacted with at their previous place of employment.
  • A dream team is well-balanced and feeds off each other’s strengths. Diversiry your staff and ensure everyone has strong, different skills, which they can teach to others.
  • Candidates should come with their own customer base and loyal following to help increase the success of an organization.
  • Potential employees should be very enthusiastic about helping the company be as successful as possible.

No matter the scope or size of an event, it’s best to have some sort of common thread that ties everything together. This can be accomplished using décor, lighting, food, floral and even music.
 
It’s when you don’t have a cohesive look that the attendee experience can feel disjointed and not provide the outcomes you set out to achieve.

 

When you open your phone, which app is your go-to? For most people around the globe, from teens to savvy seniors, Instagram is one of the most popular platforms for sharing experiences with friends and family. Posting images to a profile and adding pictures to Instagram stories are modern ways for users to keep others informed on different aspects of their lives. When it comes to hosting events, making an impression on guests is key to a successful event and its impact on social media.

 

While you might feel safer having multiple security teams at the same event, you may not realize that unless handled properly, this can set up a scenario of confusion and chaos should an emergency occur. When it’s your event, it is up to you to establish a firm chain of command, so if a situation does happen, everyone has a clear understanding of who is in charge and what their respective responsibilities are.
