More than Just Recruitment Assistance
Following the renovation of its historic building in San Francisco’s downtown, the Courtyard by Marriott Hotel opened in Union Square in late 2015. As the hotel prepared to open their doors, the Courtyard by Marriott utilized OEWD’s staffing services to help fill entry level positions.
To meet their demand for talent, OEWD’s Business Services Unit partnered with its own Hospitality Initiative program to conduct outreach and recruitment, as well as the coordination of a hiring event in Chinatown in August 2015. Thanks to outreach, recruitment and the success of the hiring event, Courtyard by Marriott hired fourteen Housekeepers and Day Porters. Nearly one year later, over 90% of those employed have been retained in their positions.
“We are very happy with our team and appreciate all of your help in finding them…[OEWD staff] May and everyone we worked with were professional and extremely responsive to our requests and needs. We couldn’t be more pleased with the service and with the quality of associates we have hired. Thank you May and the entire team!”
