Why You Should Join ONE Lodging Management
ONE Support Culture
Support is the foundation for how we work at ONE Lodging Management, and it is woven throughout the DNA of our brand. We strive to support our Employees (our Supporters) as they support their respective teams and our Company’s culture.
As Supporters of ONE Lodging Management, we are part of the solution.
As Supporters of ONE Lodging Management, we are positive and we capitalize on what’s right instead of complaining about what’s wrong.
As Supporters of ONE Lodging Management, we are facilitating growth and success through our individual and team contributions.
“The main reason I can take on additional responsibilities at another location—sometimes for several weeks—is because I fully trust my fellow Supporters. And my skills are effective at another property because we work as a team.”
Kelli Mai, General Manager, Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites, Emporia
When you join ONE Lodging Management you’ll take on more than just a good job. You’ll enjoy the benefits of working in an entrepreneurial environment with highly supportive leaders who empower you to bring forth and act upon your great ideas.
ONE’s people support is tremendous. They’ve recruited successful leaders from all departments of hospitality, providing all its hotels with access to some of the best and most visionary information available. Because ONE is committed to their people, it’s a fantastic place to work for anyone who is opportunistic and awaiting the right situation to advance their career.”
Eric Heaney, Area General Manager, Holiday Inn Express and Oak Tree Inn, Nevada, MO.
Ways & Practices
We like to call them Ways & Practices (rather than Best Practices)
At ONE Lodging Management, we believe that a great manager supports team members by leading with integrity. Providing clear expectations is key to Supporter (employee) satisfaction in all departments, so we’ve developed ‘Ways & Practices’, which are guidelines for our managers to best approach and perform people-related operations. Only when our Supporters’ (team members or employees) expectations are met, can we exceed our guests’ expectations.
‘Ways’ relate to the Culture of ONE Lodging Management, and ‘Practices’ implies working toward improvement. By implementing ‘practices’ instead of rigid policies, we are able to continuously adopt new and better ways of doing things.
We have more than walked the talk. Our Ways & Practices are firmly based on years of experience in running complex operations. While we always strive for consistency, we recognize that one size doesn’t necessarily fit all. We know that each hotel has its unique nuances so our Ways & Practices are flexible—they allow for the gray areas—but at the same time they address important compliance issues and provide consistency across all ONE managed hotels.
Training & Development
ONE Step Forward Professional Development Program
As a young and fast-growing organization, ONE Lodging Management offers employment opportunities that represent exceptional ground-floor openings for the right kind of individuals. We specifically seek out candidates who have the potential and desire to grow their careers with us and who relish the chance to take part in directly shaping an innovative and positive corporate culture. Welcome!
“Early on I had two great learning opportunities. I assisted with other hotels where needed, and participated in new acquisitions. Armed with these new skills and my desire to grow with the company, ONE Lodging Management recognized my potential and fast-track promoted me. I couldn’t be happier!”
Carmen Negrutiu, Area General Manager, Hampton Inn Statesville & Hampton Inn Emporia
Appreciation and Recognition
The Spirit of ONE Recognition Program
At ONE Lodging Management, we believe that recognition and employee engagement go hand in hand. When employees feel valued, they feel more connected to the organization. This helps to build a shared identity throughout the company and also serves to reinforce our Shared Vision, Mission, Promise, Goal and Support Culture.
We encourage Guests, managers and peers to recognize our Supporters for acts of hospitality, exceptional performance and delivery of service that aligns with our Shared Vision. We offer tangible rewards for acknowledging those who exemplify our Support Culture and who truly embody our Values.
Learning & Training
All for ONE with the Power of ONE Guest Services Training Program
We believe that learning is a continual process. It begins on a new Supporter’s very first day, and continues throughout their entire career. We also believe that providing ongoing training opportunities is vital to both individual development and to organizational growth.
‘We are ONE,’ our new-hire orientation program, includes an introduction to our history, as well as our Shared Vision, Promise, Mission, Goal and Values. We see it as a pivotal step in ensuring that new staff members are successfully inducted into our unique Support Culture.
‘All for ONE’ is our frontline service training program which underscores our expectations for the delivery of exceptional Guest experiences. ‘All for ONE’ empowers Supporters to bring our Shared Vision of service excellence to life.
Because learning is a Core Value at ONE Lodging Management, our Supporters are regularly involved in on-the-job training and individualized learning opportunities, as identified through our annual performance appraisal and career-development process known as ‘ONE Step Forward.’
“By giving me support and the tools I need to succeed, ONE enabled me to become not just a better manager but a better leader. I have learned new manager tasks such as budgeting and labor forecasting. I have learned to empower my supporters so they can make decisions and be accountable. I have learned to manage in adversity. When you have a management company that cares and supports like this ONE, it becomes contagious.”
Stephanie Packer, Area General Manager, Holiday Inn Express & Suites Mattoon
ONE for the Road Benefits Program
ONE’s goal is to empower employees with everything they need, not just to enjoy success on the job, but also to live a healthy and balanced life. As such, we offer a robust menu of benefits to all our Supporters, whether they work full-time or part-time.
“Most importantly, ONE cares more about me being a single father of two than about how much work I can get done in a certain time frame. It is a company that cares about people.”
David Lynch, Regional Assistant Controller, Scottsdale
