Showcase Solid HR Practices

Complete an audit of your HR practices. AHLA members can apply to be recognized as an Employer of Choice by completing an audit of their human resources practices. All you need to do is show your property has solid and effective HR practices. You do not need an HR department to participate.
“Carrying the designation attracts new candidates. As new candidates research a potential employer, they often choose one that has proven to treat their staff with respect and have sound policies in place. We select candidates that are proud to work in this industry, therefore we greatly recognize when they have selected us based on the fact that we carry the EoC designation.
In addition, we use the data generated from the reports as an audit tool. It helps us determine if our HR policies are up-to-date and communicated adequately. We have used the reports to implement many changes to our protocols in the past. ”
– Andrea Schaetzle, Manager of Human Resources, The Rimrock Resort Hotel
