ATLANTA, GA – October 26, 2017– Carver Hotel Group (CHG), the hospitality infrastructure powerhouse, announced the launch of CARVER-SELECT, a new Task Force service, designed to support select and limited service properties across North America.
While historically, the largest user of Task Force consultants has been full service hotels, there is an ever growing demand for support positions such as: general manager, front office manager, housekeeping, engineering and sales at the select and limited services levels. Developing a pool of consultants for SELECT will allow Task Force to be provided at a price point that will work within Select or Limited Service budget.
An empty seat in any hotel means potentially lower guest service scores, lost revenue and profitability. Carver contract professionals help properties eliminate that risk with their expertise and immediate pro-active efforts. To accommodate the varying demands of the market, consultants are available for time frames from two weeks to six months.
CHG’s Task Force consultants are assigned to properties in partnership with owners, vice presidents, regional directors and general managers. Key considerations when assigning a consultant include:
- Property Size and Type
- Skill Sets
- Automation systems
- Market Segments
- Geographical Location
CHG consultants typically travel on two or three week cycles to save travel expenses to the hotel. CHG’s proprietary system, BIB or Business Information Bridge – connects hotels and consultants at a speed unheard of in the hospitality industry, allowing consultants to arrive on property as quickly as the next business day.
According to CEO Joel Carver, CHG currently has more than 600 task force consultants available across both operational and sales disciplines, including:
- General Manager (A, B, C)
