Background

Econo Lodge & Holiday Inn

Econo Lodge and Holiday Inn are well-known names in the hospitality industry - both offering comfortable, clean, easily accessible accommodations that are highly rated by families and solo travellers alike. With hundreds of locations under their belt, and given the nature of their business in having to provide stellar round-the-clock service, hiring can prove to be challenging, and turnover rates can be significantly higher for their hourly workers.

Dalwadi Hospitality Management is a respected hotel management company based in Houston, Texas with a quickly growing portfolio of impressive clientele, including Econo Lodge and Holiday Inn. Dalwadi offers comprehensive solutions for developing quality hospitality properties from start to finish, and helps clients see every project through from the very first seed of an idea to a fully developed property. From acquiring the land, building the site, and managing the property, Dalwadi Hospitality Management is a full-service hospitality management company.

With Workstream, Dalwadi and their clients were able to lower no-show rates and process applications faster.

Problem

Lack of Applicant Tracking System and High No-show Rates

Before working with Workstream, Econo Lodge and Holiday Inn, as well as other Dalwadi clients, needed the tools to help them track applicants as they move along the hiring process. Their hiring was made more time-consuming by the high no-show rates and lack of proper screening. They needed a tool that allowed them to reach out to more qualified applicants so that they could not only hire better, but also improve their efficiency by reducing no-show rates.
