Where to Recruit
16
A connection to the destination or company is
always favorable
 People are happiest and most productive
when their personal life is in order
 Hotels, attractions, restaurants, well respected
high performing companies
 How to handle recruiting from a member
 Staff referrals

How about the internet?
17
“There's a lot of talk about recruiting with social media
sites, but it really is just talk.” So says Steve Williams,
director of research at the Society for Human
Resource Management. “Just 3 percent of
organizations currently use social media for
recruiting”

Extremely time consuming and hard to cut through the clutter

Be very specific regarding background and qualifications

Designate one person to sort through and respond to all

LinkedIn is a very good resource
Finding New and Non Traditional Talent
18





Experiment with entry or mid level jobs
Identify which skills are transferable
Hiring a person from outside of our industry requires more time
and training
Experiment with internships (For DMO’s partner with a hotel
and/or convention center)
Look for experience in another service related industry

The Interview Process – Pre-work
20






If this is really a priority, treat it as such
Be careful about changing scheduled interviews or being late
Everything you do to alter the process will send a message to
the candidate
Develop a detailed interview agenda if the candidate is
meeting with more than one person
Make sure other interviewers clearly understand the position
that the person is interviewing for
Develop a list of detailed questions for each person conducting
the interview
The Interview
21







Remember, for the best and the brightest this will be a two
way interview
If the person is the star performer that you hope they are, they
will want to make sure that this is the right company and
position for them
Let them sit in the lobby for a bit and interact with others
The first 10 minutes of the interview – Yes, you will know
Allow time for their questions
Be sure to explain the process and time line
Follow up when you promised that you would (our industry is
horrible at this)

organization?
Empower People to make decisions – do not over manage
Regular communication – informal and formalized (rap
sessions)
Qualify their needs
Crossroads Career Model vs. Traditional Ladder Model
Recognition
24





Become a detective and look for clues to give recognition
Celebrate small, everyday successes, not just big
accomplishments
Do it correctly – specifically and immediately and describe the
impact it has on you and the organization
Make five, ten, fifteen and 20 year service anniversaries an
event
Know everyone’s recognition hot buttons and customize it –
training, time off, plaques, window office, bonus upside, added
responsibility, etc.
