The hotel associate engagement playbook

The ultimate field guide to engaging and enabling every single worker in your organization—from front desk staff to housekeeping—at any scale

Do you know what an engaged hotel workforce really looks like?

It’s not just happy associates—it’s a hotel workforce that’s truly confident, competent and comfortable doing their job, every single day.

Hotels bring together an interconnected but highly diversified network of staff like no other, all with the same goal; creating world-class guest experiences. The workforce spans a broad scope of people, from housekeeping to kitchen and restaurant staff, valet workers to porters, security to event staff and other roles that can make the associate experience varied and disparate.

The goal of this playbook is to provide hotel operators and managers with tactics to unite and engage their staff network, no matter the size and scope.

A learning-forward approach to hotel associate engagement

Far too often, associate engagement is seen as intangible, vague—a nice-to-have to keep workers happy and loyal. But associate engagement is far more powerful than that.

Engagement has the ability to unite and align the sometimes massive workforces that hotels employ under one guiding light. It can rally workforces toward common goals and common driving forces. If it’s done right.

Consider this playbook your roadmap of the tactics, tools and touchpoints—and metrics!—that make employee engagement finally feel attainable.
