We know how to market your company to that talent.
It’s time to find a better way. It’s time for The Patrice Way.
Hospitality Recruitment for a GREAT Client!
I wanted to share both a picture and account of my visit to the Bavarian Inn this past weekend- my BEST client- and partner- Imelda Leix.
I’ll try to keep this brief- but the short story is that when corporate called and asked me to take on Bavarian Inn as a client, I was excited as this is a hotel that holds a deep meaning for my family – having gone there as a child with my parents- and then bringing my own children when they were little and now. We’ve always enjoyed everything about the Bavarian Inn and Frankenmuth.
So as I began working with Imelda and team, I already had a passion for helping find the best possible people for her and the Inn, and as we fast forward through our working relationship, it goes without saying that Imelda has been the most communicative partner regarding the candidates we’ve worked through of any client I work with. Based on the foundation of that communication, we’ve worked together to help 3 candidates get hired at the Bavarian Inn over the past several months, all 3 of whom I got the opportunity to personally speak with and hear about the their positive experiences so far working for Bavarian Inn the past couple of days.
Also over the weekend I was given a tour of the entire facility and holdings so I could better understand the scope of their needs and reach, as well as hear about the characteristics and caliber of the people that work for them- much like Imelda, who has worked for the Bavarian Inn for 40 years!
Really just wanted to share this because I'm in a grateful and committed state of mind to help amazing clients like Imelda and Bavarian Inn!Doug Lockwood Grand Rapids Franchisee Hospitality Recruitment for a GREAT Client!
