ATLANTA, GA – August 20, 2020 – Carver Hotel Group (CHG), a division of The Carver Companies, will now offer preferred clients SWATkeepers and SWATservers as alternatives to J-1 and H2B visa staffing.

“CHG has always been a leading Task Force agency that works quickly to create solutions for our clients’ changing needs.  As our industry begins to recover from COVID-19 impacts, we receive daily inquiries from clients asking if we could help replace the void left by J-1 and H2B visa team members,” said Chief Development Officer Charlene “Charley” Carter. “This new level of Task Force services will help address the issue for our clients.”

CHG’s new offerings include:

  • SWATkeepers – focusing on housekeeping
  • SWATservers – focusing on Food and Beverage outlets
  • SWATsups – a supervisor included whenever there are 10 or more SWAT consultants assigned to one property


While CHG cannot provide hourly housekeeping support, they have put together a large team of individuals who were previously successful at the supervisory level and are providing SWAT services during this crisis.  They will work as Task Force Consultants providing the same services that clients received from J-1 and H2B staff, without some of the maintenance regulations required for J-1/H2B.

“This is not an hourly or on-call, temporary employee service, but an extension of Task Force, where each consultant is contracted for a minimum period of four weeks,” explained Carter.

To participate in the SWAT program, each hotel or resort must have a minimum need of five consultants for a minimum assignment of four weeks.  The maximum assignment for any one consultant is 145 days, allowing for travel home every four weeks.

The cost for a SWATkeeper or a SWATserver is a flat fee per week, per consultant.

At this time, CHG is making the SWAT teams exclusively available to their Gold and Platinum business partners.  To learn more or to schedule a SWAT team, please contact Carter at 404-254-3130 or email her at [email protected].
