Hospitality Staffing Solutions Releases Key Findings from 2nd Annual Housekeeper Survey

Survey of More Than 10,000 HSS Workers Shows Impact of COVID-19 and Eagerness to Return to Hospitality

ATLANTA (November 20, 2020) — Hospitality Staffing Solutions (HSS), the largest hospitality staffing firm in the United States, has released the initial 2020 results of its annual Survey of Hospitality Staff. The survey includes key findings around the impact of COVID and workforce inclination to returning to work safely during a long recovery ahead.
The survey was initially conducted among deployed HSS staff prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, and then updated in October 2020 to measure the impact of COVID-19. The survey includes responses from more than 10,000 back-of-house HSS employees surveyed across North America — primarily housekeepers, food service employees and janitorial staff.

“This survey reveals both the resilience of the hospitality workforce and their stated desire to return to the industry during the recovery period,” said Tim McPherson, President of HSS. “Throughout the pandemic, HSS has maintained and even grown its pool of workers and continues to employ people through a mix of hospitality and other sectors. Listening closely to this team and answering their needs will be an important factor moving ahead as the hotel industry continues its recovery in 2021.”

Some of the key findings from the report related to the huge impact that the global pandemic has had on the hospitality industry:

● 68% said that they saw a reduction or elimination of hours
● 45% said they found work in other industry sectors

The survey also shows that hospitality workers strongly align their career aspirations with the hotel industry and are very much looking forward to returning to work:

● 87% of respondents said they would like to return to work in a hotel or resort
● 81% said they would feel safe returning to work in a hotel
HSS workers still employed in hospitality, generally feel safe in their day-to-day work at hotels and resorts:
● 91% said that they have received adequate training to work safely.
● 90% said they have the supplies needed to perform their jobs safely and effectively

HSS worked with with ClearlyRated to compile the data for this study. ClearlyRated (formerly known as Inavero) administers more staffing agency client and talent satisfaction surveys than any other firm in the world, reporting on more than 1.2 million satisfaction surveys from staffing agency clients and job seekers each year.
The complete survey and analysis covering job satisfaction, pay, and other factors will be will be made available later in Q4 of 2020.

Getting Back To Work: HSS Now Offers Part-Time Staffing

Getting Back To Work: HSS Now Offers Part-Time Staffing

hss temp professional cleaningHSS Now Offers Part-Time Staffing

As hotels and resorts begin to see increasing occupancy, they can face challenges in staffing for part-time work. Lower occupancy levels and different cleaning protocols often mean that staff may not be needed on a full-time basis.

HSS is working with properties to provide staff on a part-time basis as occupancy levels are in this growth period. This will allow hotels to remain flexible during the recovery period.

Opening Staffing to New Properties

Staffing partnership is an efficient model as hotels beginning to see increased occupancy. Based on past periods of recovery, staffing has been used to address challenges such as:

  • Decrease in HR / Recruiting support
  • Laid off staff that can’t be rehired
  • Inability to add to payroll
  • Increased need for flexibility in hours

An HSS Solution

HSS is working with properties during the recovery period to meet these challenges through:

  • Part-time Staff
  • 50 State Recruiting
  • Task Force
  • Direct Hire

During the COVID-19 crisis, we were able to deploy our workforce to a variety of operations that required enhanced cleaning to stay up and running. Many of these positions are part-time, allowing HSS to combine employment opportunities with hotels as they rise from the crisis and begin to build occupancy.

Robust Recruiting

HSS continues its national recruiting operations, which is rapidly building our database of employees. This will allow HSS to work with hotels as they build occupancy and offer full-time employees today and into the future.

HSS Enhanced Safety Training

HSS Enhanced Safety Training

HSS Enhanced Safety Training

As hotels and resorts look toward operating in during the COVID recovery period, safety is a major concern. HSS has always taken the safety of its workers very seriously, providing training and a national safety team focused on training and monitoring conditions, partnering with hotels on protocols, and ensure that workers are practicing safe work habits and are entering safe work environments.

The HSS safety protocols have changed significantly as hotel staff return to work. New safety training protocols protect HSS employees but also protect hotel staff as well as hotel guests. The new HSS safety training for hotel housekeepers and cleaning staff covers topics such as:

  • Proper use of PPE, including masks
  • The use of chemical disinfectants
  • Social distancing
  • Guest Room and Public Area Cleaning Protocols
  • Proper disposal of PPE

In addition, the guide also provides an overview of levels of deep clean and protocols for COVID remediation. While the new safety protocols are primarily aimed at HSS staff, our safety is working with hotels and resorts on their own safety protocols and providing the guide as a reference for hotel staff training as well.

HSS employs a national safety team as part of its overall focus on compliance. Compliance remains a major focus for HSS during the recovery. We have maintained a strong pool of hospitality and cleaning staff during the crisis and will continue to put safety and compliance at the forefront during this recovery which protects our workers, hotel staff, and their guests.
